Lakes Fishing Well

The Yellowstone has been fishing very well the past few days, but there has also been some great dry fly fishing on both local and private lakes lately.   Damsels, callibaetis, sedges, cicadas and terrestrials have all been working well out there, with a few big fish even looking up and taking the dry.  If…

Salmonfly Fever!

Salmonfly Fever continues… most boats have been heading up high to be in the middle of the salmonflies.  There have also been a bunch of sallies, caddis, goldenstones, and big chocolate colored sedges.   Nymphing with stonefly nymphs has been effective and the streamer bite has been decent as well, especially where you are not…

Yellowstone Fishing Well

The Yellowstone is on the drop and fishing well!  Salmonfly fever is now in full effect with big bugs anywhere from Emigrant up to Gardiner.  Flows are still a little burly so be careful out there and have fun!  Give us a call to book a trip.  406-222-7130.

Clarity Report

The Yellowstone is still looking good today despite the hard thunderstorms the past two afternoons.  Pine Creek down is still rocking and rolling and too pushy to fish effectively.  Better to wait until 8,000 CFS for that.  Salmonfly dries have popped and the fish have been taking dries tight to the willows.  There have been…

Clarity Report

The Yellowstone is starting to shape up.  Looks like the Lamar is starting to level out, with temperatures in the high 70’s and low 80’s this week we could be on the drop soon.  Flows at Carter’s Bridge this morning are around 12,00o CFS so the valley will fish much better than town or below town…

SW Montana Fishing Well

South Western Montana rivers are on the drop and fishing well.  There are a lot of places to go right now including the all the major blue ribbon streams as well as smaller spring creeks, mountain streams, and local stillwaters. There have been Salmonflies, goldenstones, sallies, PMD’s, caddis, brown drakes, and terrestrials out there so…

PMD’s on the Spring Creeks

PMD’s have been coming off in full force on the Spring Creeks.  Mornings have been slower, but the afternoons have offered dry fly anglers some solid action.  From what we can gather, the larger (size 14-18) infrequens PMDs hatched at bit earlier on the Yellowstone Aquife, which flows through Armstrong’s and DePuy’s and a day…

Clarity Still Good

Clarity is looking very good just above Carter’s bridge today.  The town section and below however is very fast, deep, and turbulent, making the Valley a much better fishing option until flows drop.  The Larmar finally blipped up a bit, we’ll see what happens the next day or two but we are expecting the Yellowstone…

Lakes Fishing Well

Local and private lakes have been fishing very well lately.  Callibaetis are coming off mid morning through lunch and the fish have been chomping them.  Leeches, scuds, chironomids, water boatmens, and damsel nymphs have also been doing the trick.  While it is always fun to float the Yellowstone or Madison, there are some great stillwater…

Clarity Looking Good

Last week’s cold and nasty weather temporarily shut off the snowmelt and as a result the Stone is looking good!  It fished well yesterday and looks like it should hang in there a day or two before warmer temperatures start to melt the snow again.  The Yellowstone will likely be in and out over the…
