Hoot Owl Lifted on the Yellowstone

Due to recent rain and colder temperatures FWP has lifted several “Hoot Owl” fishing closures including the Yellowstone from the HWY 212 Bridge in Laurel to the Yellowstone National Park boundary. Basically this means the Yellowstone is now open to fishing 24 hours a day like usual and you no longer have to quit fishing…

Clarity Report

Clarity is looking much better in town and above today. It is still a little off, with the Lamar’s triple spike but still considered “green is good” water. Should be a good day for streamers, rubber legs, and nymphs. It might take another day for great dry fly action but it is clear enough to…

Fishing Report

The Yellowstone has finally cleared up after a long stint of thick mud. The mud gave the fish a great rest and the water temps dropped between 60-66 degrees. It does look like water temps could rise over the weekend however with more days in the 90’s. While the river was muddy we had good…

Clarity Report

The Yellowstone looks like a no go for today, although we have hopes of fishing in between plugs the next few days. We have heard rumors of more mud coming from the Park however it looks clearer in Gardiner today than it does in Livingston. Those who were able to sneak into a “green is…

Clarity Report

We are thankful for the recent rain and cooler temps, however we do have some mud in the river and it looks like more to come. There are clear sections of the river for today, especially for those who like fishing streamers. We’ll know more about what Wednesday and Thursday will look like as we…

Clarity Report

Yesterday in the Park a couple of our guides confirmed mud on the Soda Butte and Lamar. Clear water is now coming down from Gardiner and Livingston looks great, although it is slightly greener than gin clear. We are still trying to pin point the mud. Sounds like Pine Creek is muddier than Livingston as…

Hoot Owl In Effect

Due to the recent hot temperatures, the Yellowstone has now been issued a “Hoot Owl” restriction, meaning anglers are prohibited from fishing between 2:00 PM and midnight each day. The portion of the Yellowstone that is on restriction starts in Laurel at the HWY 212 bridge all the way to the Yellowstone Park Boundary in…

Water temps hanging in there for now

Although CFS flows on the Yellowstone are low, water temps have been hanging in there. Unfortunately that looks to change this weekend and next week with temps pushing into the 3 digit range. We recommend getting and early start and quitting early, (for all parties involved). Take water temps through out the day and if…

Clarity Report

There is quite a bit of mud on the Yellowstone right now, with more mud coming from Gardiner. There are a couple “clear” windows however, a semi clear window from Emigrant to Carters (at 7:45 AM) and another similar if not more clear window that was at Mayor’s landing last night. We had a couple…

Heat Wave

The Yellowstone has been fishing well lately despite historically low CFS flows for this time of year, (and the heat wave).  Although most of the Salmonflies have fluttered into the Park, the fish have been eating Goldenstones, Sallies, Caddis, PMD’s, and Terrestrials.  With water temps on the rise we are recommending an early start and…
