Despite some well needed rain and a quick “cold” front, we’ve still had a lot of heat lately. Strangely enough, the bite has been pretty good from mid-morning straight through the late afternoon. We have been fishing streamers or chub / rub (a chubby chernobyl with a rubber leg dropper) in the morning and switching over to double or single hopper rigs in the afternoon. Some nice fish have been caught this past week! Some of the fish are starting to bump or nudge the hopper, so be sure to keep your cool and don’t strike too quickly, taking the fly away from them. Give us a call for the latest report or to book at trip. 406-222-7130.

If water temperatures hit 73 degrees for 3 days in a row, the Yellowstone may go in to a “Hootowl” restriction, (forcing people to quit fishing at 2:00PM). So far we are OK, but something to keep an eye on, especially if you are taking fish photos. Be sure to keep fish wet as long as possible and revive them appropriately.
