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…

Yellowstone still running high and muddy

The Yellowstone is still running fast and high, and while people are itching to get out there we have been fishing other waters instead.  The Lower Madison, Spring Creeks, and private lakes have all been better options for now.  Its a strange year for runoff.  There is still a lot of snow in the mountains,…

Lakes fishing well…

With many of our freestone rivers still running muddy, local and private fee lakes have been a fun option. Depending on the elevation of the lake, the Callibaetis hatches have been coming off thick and the fish have been happily feeding on nymphs, duns, and spent spinners.  Leeches, scuds, snails, damsels, hoppers, and water boatmans…

16,000 CFS and climbing…

Now that runoff is in full swing, we are starting to see some seriously dangerous currents and debris in the river.  We do not advise even pleasure floating until things settle down, which isn’t going to be any time soon.  The good news is local and private lakes have been fishing very well, as has…

Runoff is Here

The Yellowstone was kind enough to give us a couple more windows but now it looks as though that door has been shut.  With warmer nighttime temperatures, (rising into the 50’s by this weekend), the Yellowstone will continue climb.  We want to caution all river users to be extremely careful at this time.  It will…

Runoff is Coming

The recent colder temps have kept runoff at bay the past few days.   People have be floating and throwing streamers with limited success, but it only takes one nice brown to make you feel good.  Most anglers have been throwing streamers going for a big fish on the edges but big rubber leg nymphs…

Other waters fishing well

With the Yellowstone in and out of clarity other rivers have been a little more consistent.  The lower Madison and the Missouri have both been fishing well.  The Paradise Valley Spring Creeks and local/private lakes have also been a solid option.  Give us a call if you’d like to book a trip!  1-406-222-7130.

Clarity May 14 2019

  The Yellowstone is in runoff mode, dirty and rising quickly. With a still decent snowpack in the mountains, we should be in for a healthy runoff this spring. It is time to explore new waters- Spring Creeks, Private Lakes, and tailwaters have been fishing well.     Spring creeks are still seeing some Midge…

Clairty & Caddis Report

The Yellowstone looks great with plenty of visibility in the Valley and town.   No mud plugs coming as of yet, the river should hold out nicely through the weekend before coming up and getting murky again.  Yesterday water temps nearly hit 52 degrees and anglers were spotting a couple caddis here and there.  Today…

Clarity Report

The Yellowstone is looking good for the moment.  We are hoping clarity holds out through the weekend.  With the warmer 60 degree days coming up we should see some caddis action.  There have been blue wings, March browns, skwalas, and midges out as well, so the fish have had some food to eat.  Give us…
