Clarity Report

Clarity in town, (5/15 7:47 AM) Clarity is hanging in there, at least for today. The west channel has some mud kicking in from a feeder creek, which means other feeder creeks could be bringing in a little mud as well. The Hydraulic prediction is calling for a steep spike by Tuesday, Monday should be…

Mother’s Day Caddis

Brachycentrus occidentalis (Mother’s Day caddis) continue to come off despite yesterday’s rain and colder weather. Clarity should hang in there through the weekend. With temps in the 60’s on Saturday and 70’s on Sunday/Monday it looks like the hydraulic prediction has the Yellowstone rising significantly by Tuesday. Today is calling for high winds with gusts…

Spring Fishing

Happy Easter! Things have warmed up a bit since last week’s storm. Despite record lows and some heavy snow shoveling across the state, we were happy to get the precipitation. The storm hit harder in some areas than others. For the Upper Yellowstone basin the storm brought our snow pack from around 75% up to…

Winter Fishing

Our apologies as its been a while since we’ve posted a fishing report. In general, it has been cold and windy! That said, those willing to put up with some cold fingers, (and ice in the guides) have caught a few nice fish here and there. The Yellowstone in Paradise Valley is completely iced over…

The fishing on the Yellowstone has been slow lately. A few nice browns have been caught on streamers here and there but now many of the browns are already up tributaries, in side channels, or in the tailouts looking for gravel. As they begin to spawn we’ll look to give them a break to get…

Fall Fishing

The Yellowstone has been a little tough lately, we could certainly use some cloud cover. The brighter days have customers and guides digging into the nymph bins, particularly the Euro nymph bin. These nymphs are small and heavy and get in the strike zone quickly. Soft hackle jigs, perdigon nymphs, and baetis jig nymphs have…

Fall Colors Are Here!

Fall colors have started, making the Yellowstone one of the most scenic places to float in SW Montana right now. The past few days have been bright and sunny, so nymph fishing has been the name of the game. If some clouds roll over we have seen some larger mayflies, larger size #10-12 parachutes have…

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…
