October Fishing Report

The weather has finally taken a turn in SW Montana, with plenty of colder temps, clouds, and snow. If the wind doesn’t get out of hand, there have been some BWO’s on the water. Keep your eyes peeled for risers in the foam eddies and smooth-flowing tail-outs. If dries are out of the equation due…

Fall Fishing

The Yellowstone is in a bit of a transitional stage right now as the hopper bite is starting to slow down and the small dry fly bite is starting to heat up. Parachute Adams, Purple Hazes, Copper Hazes, Hecuba drakes, and baetis dries have all been taking fish on top. The streamer bite also seems…

September Fishing

Cooler temperatures and brisk morning air have become the harbingers of Fall fishing. Hoppers remain the main food source, although guides are finally starting to wonder over to the streamer bin. Mornings continue to be slow fishing with fish looking up for Hoppers, ants, beetles, and other smaller dries from 11:00-3:00. A few nice fish…

Hoppers Galore

Fishing has gotten a little tough out there this past week. Mornings have still been challenging, but fish have been eating stonefly patters, rubber leg nymphs, and a variety of tungsten bead jig droppers. The afternoons have still produced the most action with the hopper window fishing best between 11:30-3:00. Water temps through town have…

Clarity Report

Clarity in town today looked at least a couple feet. Looks like Gardiner has clear water now, although the Gardiner had chocolate milk in it last night and that mud is currently at Emigrant (8:22 AM). The good news is that it is a short plug. Pine Creek to Springdale should be fine today. The…

Hopper Time

The Yellowstone continues to fish a little fickle but there have been some quality fish caught this past week. We finally got a couple days of cloud cover, which helped keep the water temps down a bit for a couple days, but after more sun the water temp reached over 70 degrees. The good news…

July Report

The Yellowstone has had its ups and downs this past week. With few clouds in the sky, the dry fly bite has been tough. Guides have been working hard to put people on fish however, often this has meant nymphing or fishing a dry/dropper rig. The streamer bite has been slow as well, but all…

Yellowstone Fishing Well

The river has been dropping and fishing well the past few days. CFS @ Carter’s bridge is currently at 8,450 and shaping up nicely. Salmonflies are still around way up high, a float anywhere near Gardiner would be a good choice right now if you are looking to see these big bugs in action. The…
