Yellowstone Fishing Well

The river has been dropping and fishing well the past few days. CFS @ Carter’s bridge is currently at 8,450 and shaping up nicely. Salmonflies are still around way up high, a float anywhere near Gardiner would be a good choice right now if you are looking to see these big bugs in action. The…

Salmonfly Fever Continues

There have been a plethora of bugs on the water lately including Salmonflies, Goldenstones, Sallies, Caddis, and Green Drakes.

Runoff Update

Although the Yellowstone has been dropping we are expecting the river to come back up this week. We had a few days with day time temperatures in the high 80’s which eventually caused the Lamar and other rivers to come up. While temps are going to be lower starting Sunday, we also have some rain…

Runoff Season

While runoff on the Yellowstone remains in full force, tailwaters, spring creeks, and lakes have been fishing well. We expect the PMD’s on the creeks to hatch around June 20th or so, with the thickest hatches occurring right towards the end of June. With snow water equivalent for the upper Yellowstone Basin at 80% snow…

Happy Memorial Day

Clarity on the Yellowstone yesterday (5/24) was less than a foot. There is a chance right on the edges with a streamer however, and that means a chance of a nice brown if you get lucky. Last week’s hydrologic prediction was right, at least the river was on the drop the past few days. Expect…
