Some of our smaller streams dropping to base levels are warming to point where fish move out to bigger, cooler water or feed only early or late in the day when water is cooler. Most other small streams are fishing very well. They will continue to do so as terrestrial insects become more important in trout’s diet. Terrestrial insects are a reason why meadow streams are so much fun to fish. Streams that hold meadow reaches famed for terrestrial insect populations are numerous around our area. Some of the best include the Teton River in the Basin, The Blackfoot River in the Blackfoot River Wildlife Management Area, Lower McCoy Creek, Lower Jackknife Creek, Birch Creek, Medicine Lodge Creek, Stump Creek, Crow Creek and Camas Creek. With grasshopper populations beginning to build fishing waters such as these should be considered.
