Pine to Carter’s

  We had some great dry fly fishing yesterday despite the bright and sunny weather.  There were plenty of small baetis on the water, a few hecuba drakes, and lots of rising fish in the foam eddies and slower foam lines.  We got one fish on a hopper but it was clear that more fish…

The recent change in weather has brought on some great fishing lately.  Those willing to put up with some ripping wind (and plenty of rain) on the Yellowstone have been rewarded with several 20+ inch browns.  Big fish are looking up (had a big ‘ole brown eat a large thill indicator two nights ago) but…

Madison Fishing well

Since a lot of fishing reports lately have been telling people to go to the Yellowstone, the Madison has had significantly less pressure than normal and the fishing has actually been quite good!  Nymphs and streamers are still your best bet if you are looking for big browns, but there are plenty of fat 16…
