Clarity Report

Clarity in town today looks around a foot or so but we have darker/muddier water coming from Gardiner. The Sheild’s has been hanging in there but will likely be spitting mud in the next couple days. Despite the decent clarity and good numbers of caddis the fishing has been slow in general. The streamer bite…

Clarity Report

The Yellowstone has dropped and cleared up quite a bit with the recent cold spell. While the Mother’s Day Caddis have dwindled significantly, we do expect to see one more “pop” as warmer temps arrive later this week. For now there is a good window of opportunity for nymph fishing and throwing streamers. Give us…

Caddis Popped but spotty, mud coming

The caddis have “popped” but not in crazy numbers yet and the fish haven’t been on the dries very hard. Clarity on the Yellowstone today is definitely worse than yesterday but still good enough to catch a few on dries. We have had the best luck on caddis emergers. Today is on the windy side,…

Mother’s Day Caddis?

With great anticipation, people have been asking about the Mother’s Day Caddis hatch but we have not seen any dries yet. There have been some blue wings on the water, (especially last weekend). Water temps have hit 52 degrees already, so we are expecting the hatch to pop soon. The streamer action has been a…

March Fishing Report

With the warmer weather we’ve been experiencing, a lot of people are calling and itching to get out on the river. People are starting to float river-wide, and the majority of the shelf ice is gone. Fishing has still been a little slower, but the sunshine does feel nice. The weekend forecast is calling for…

Winter Fishing Still Slow

Unfortunately we’ve still had plenty of cold and wind over here on the Yellowstone. Each morning this week there has been slush ice floating on the surface. Some days the slush has melted by the afternoon and on some days it stays, making it hard to get a good drift. Either way the fish have…

Slush Ice & Wind

As with many winters on the Stone, it seems either you are dealing with cold temperatures and slush ice, or consistent 30-40 mph winds. Last week we were dealing with a little of both but more ice than wind. This week it looks like things may shift the other way with warmer temps but a…

Browns Now Post-Spawn

We are excited to fish again now that the browns are finally post-spawn, (for the most part). Aside from some brutal wind conditions, the weather has been pretty good recently, with day time highs in the 40’s. That said, there has been ice on the river here and there, mostly in the form of slush…

October Fishing Report

The weather has finally taken a turn in SW Montana, with plenty of colder temps, clouds, and snow. If the wind doesn’t get out of hand, there have been some BWO’s on the water. Keep your eyes peeled for risers in the foam eddies and smooth-flowing tail-outs. If dries are out of the equation due…

Fall Fishing

The Yellowstone is in a bit of a transitional stage right now as the hopper bite is starting to slow down and the small dry fly bite is starting to heat up. Parachute Adams, Purple Hazes, Copper Hazes, Hecuba drakes, and baetis dries have all been taking fish on top. The streamer bite also seems…
