Michael Delaney with one of many dry fly rainbows caught with Jed...

It has been bright and sunny over here for the most part lately.  When the clouds have been around we’ve had some pretty decent dry fly fishing, mostly fishing baetis patterns.  Aside from these cloudy moments the streamer fishing has been slow as well.  It looks like we have a good chance for rain this afternoon and tomorrow (Tuesday), then it looks like we’re back to more sun for a while.  Although we’ve had some warmer temps (and some lower elevation snow melt) the river has remained clear enough although CFS has been on the rise (1400 CFS on Monday 4/4).  Caddis shouldn’t be far away, another 2-3 weeks.  Snowpack is looking solid at 95% water equivalent for the upper Yellowstone, and close to 100% for a lot of state.  We should be looking at a normal runoff (clearing just around late June early July) so hopefully we’ll get in some decent salmonfly fishing and still have plenty of water for August and September.  Give us a call if you’d like to book a trip  406-222-7130.
