Hopper Time

Hopper time has started in SW Montana.  The Madison, Yellowstone, and Yellowstone National Park have all been fishing well this past week with terrestrials, especially hoppers.  Looks like a little rain today (Saturday 7/27) but plenty of hot sunny days coming up next week.  CFS at Carter’s has dropped to 5600 which is a good…

Yellowstone slowing down slightly

Following last week’s action the Yellowstone has certainly gotten a little tougher.  That said, some nice fish are still getting caught and the best guides are still doing well, mostly on nymphs or streamers.  The dry fly fishing up high has still been very good however, although there will a be compromise on the size…

Clarity Report

Despite the recent afternoon thunderstorms, the Yellowstone is still good to go clarity wise.  With just a couple more big storms on the radar we should be out of the woodworks by wednesday, provide the Lamar doesn’t get hit hard this evening or tomorrow afternoon.   We did just get a mid-day report today (7/15)…

Salmonfly Fever Continues…

The Yellowstone has been fishing well.  Certain days have been better than others, but overall the dry fly action has been solid.  Most boats are still throwing salmonflies up high, with a fair amount of goldenstones, sallies, and caddis on the water as well.   As the river continues to drop the streamer bite is…

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…
