Chub/Rub In Full Effect

The Yellowstone river has been fishing well lately. Finally we have seen less afternoon showers, which has allowed the Yellowstone for a more steady and predictable drop. While we will never complain about rain it is nice to see the river clearing up without extra or unexpected mid-valley mud plugs. Streamers have been working well,…

Clarity Report

Clarity in town, 7/2 5:57AM Due to short buy heavy rains the Yellowstone is tiger striped with mud plugs. Town down is look very good this morning but up high we have some thick mud coming down. With high flows this may wash through quickly, allowing a post plug float. Give us a call for…

It’s getting there…

Clarity in town 6/27 at 6:45AM The Yellowstone has been back and forth with spikes in CFS due to big rain and thunder storms the past few days. Clarity has more or less hovered between 2-6 inches during this time. People have been catching fish despite the clarity issue. If you decide to float the…

Another 5-7 days

Clarity in town, 6/22 7:50AM The Yellowstone was starting to shape up nicely last Sunday but then it rained hard all day as well as Monday, creating a double spike in CFS. Levels are back down to 11,800 CFS currently but the river has an added hint of brown to it again. We expected this…

Happy Father’s Day!

Clarity at Carter’s bridge 6/18 6:35AM Free fishing for all today (6/18) for Father’s day. CFS is currently 11,500 and dropping. Today is the first day the river looked more olive than brown. People have been floating already, usually we recommend waiting until 10,000 CFS which will easily happen this week. No signs of salmonflies…

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…
