Fall Fishing Settling In

Although the last couple days have been hot, there has been a change of weather and we look forward to a great Fall.  The fish are still eating hoppers hard.  The fly bins, (like many in the fishing industry) are finally getting a second wind in September, with just enough hoppers to get us through…

Yellowstone Fishing Well

Mornings have been a little on the slow side but the afternoons have been fishing really well with hoppers.  Stoneflies and caddis have been the side dishes, but hoppers continue to be the main course.  Big, medium, small, tan, yellow, green, pink, purple – you name it, they have been eating it.  Getting long drifts…

Yellowstone National Park Fishing Well

Yellowstone National Park has been fishing well this summer.  The dry fly fishing has been particularly fun with lots of species on the water, including green, grey, and brown drakes, pmd’s, hoppers, flying ants, and even a few big dragonflies.  Some of the fishing directly next to the road has been fairly crowded, but if…

Hopper Feeding Frenzy

The Yellowstone has been fishing well lately.  Lots of hoppers on the water… the fish have been taking all sizes and colors so you can’t really choose a bad hopper pattern.  They have also been eating stoneflies, attractors, ants, and other terrestrials, as well as nymphs and streamers.  Give us a call to book a…

Clarity Report

The river had a couple good plugs of mud flowing through it this weekend.  Today things look green and good to go, with the exception of going down low (past Springdale).  Yesterday the river was clear from East End to Columbus but that section will likely see some mud today.  Yesterday we had trips in…

Clarity Report

The Yellowstone is going to be tiger striped with mud the next couple days.  The smaller of the two plugs has just about reached town now (Friday 8/9 at 6:30PM) with some clear water above it.  The Lamar spiked badly however, even Soda Butte was muddy today which means up high will likely be muddy…

Hoppers and Stones

The hopper fishing has been solid lately.  A long drift seems to be the common denominator as the fish have been eating all sizes and colors.  A tiny twitch here and there can help trigger a fish into eating, but a big twitches that drag the fly have been putting them down.  Chub/rub has also…

Clarity Report

There have been a few evening rain storms lately that have been adding mud into the Yellowstone mid-valley.  These short plugs have made the Yellowstone tiger striped with mud but anglers have able to work around them.  People have been excited about the hopper fishing with some nice fish getting caught.  Streamers, various colored rubberlegs,…

Clarity Report

There was a mud plug that came through the valley yesterday and is currently around Sheep Mountain today (8/1 around 8:30AM).   It is a short plug but if in order to get ahead of it you’d have to go below Big Timber and not pull on the oars very hard.  There is plenty of…

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…
