Yellowstone to clear by late June

View from Mallard’s Rest Wednesday 5/24 The Yellowstone appears to have peaked, (22,000 CFS on 5/24), although we still have our eyes peeled. Snow pack is down to 54% snow/water equivalent on the Upper Yellowstone watershed. Looking up at the amount of snow in the Absaroka mountains around Livingston and in Paradise Valley it seems…

Caddis to “Pop” Next Week

Clarity at Carter’s Bridge 5/13 7:45AM The clarity on the Yellowstone is enough for the fish to see caddis, but we have yet to see the major emergence. That said, we have been seeing hundreds of caddis on certain banks but very few rising fish, if any, so far… For now tailwater near and far…

Caddis on the Creeks

Clarity at 9th Street Island, (4/29 7:40AM) Warmer temps are starting to make the river dirty. Clarity is on the fence today (Saturday 4/29) and likely too muddy tomorrow. With temps in the 60-70’s next week CFS is sure to rise, so the spring creeks or tailwaters might be the best move for a while….

Clarity Report 4/15

Clarity below Depuy’s (4/15 7:50AM) The Yellowstone is still muddy today. There are a few inches of visibility, but we are still more brown than green. If you are up for a float and just looking to get out there it could be a fun day but the fishing will likely be slow. The Spring…

Yellowstone Report

We are finally starting to see a few spring baetis on the Yellowstone and the Paradise Valley Spring Creeks.  That said, we have been still been seeing 90% midges. Lately it has been tricky to pick a day to fish that hasn’t been snowing or blowing. The Yellowstone clarity is a little off due to…

February Fishing

It has been a chilly February so far with another cold spell coming early next week. Fishing on the Yellowstone has definitely been slow. Midges and streamers have been working during the mid-day window, any earlier or later has been a tough bite. The Spring Creeks have been a better bet, with warmer water and…

January Fishing

The weather has been nice enough to get out there and enjoy some time on the water. There is still a lot of shelf ice, making it difficult (and dangerous) to walk in certain spots. The River is also very low, making it very difficult to float, even in a raft you may have to…

A Cold and Snowy December

The good news about December is we have had a lot of early snow storms, which have given the mountains a great start for snow pack. The Upper Yellowstone Basin is currently sitting around 105% snow pack, the Jefferson Basin is sitting at 117% and the Madison Basin is looking great with 137%. Big Sky…

Winter Fishing

Fishing near Livingston this week is going to be very difficult, unless you opt for fishing one of the Paradise Valley Spring Creeks. The browns are now spawning so we ask that you be careful not to step on any redds (spawning beds) and avoid fishing to actively spawning fish. The next generation of brown…

We have been fortunate to have some beautiful weather the past week. The leaves are in their prime color change right now, making it this past week a delightful time to get out on the river or the spring creeks. We have a big shift in weather coming however, with rain and snow on the…
