CFS around 2,000 now

The Yellowstone is now down to around 2,000 CFS with cool water temperatures, making this September one of the best we’ve ever seen.  With almost no moss out there you can strip some streamers in the morning and wait for the fish to start looking up around 10:00AM.  Small hoppers and dries have been key,…

Yellowstone River Fly Fishing Report

The Yellowstone River is in full swing and fishing well.  Grasshoppers continue to produce the most consistent fishing.  Smaller terrestrials such as ants and beetles have the fish looking up as well.  In the evenings especially, look for a lingering Caddis emergence and good fishing with nocturnal stone imitations.  Mcknight’s Fat Boy has been a…
