Salmonfly Fever Continues

There have been a plethora of bugs on the water lately including Salmonflies, Goldenstones, Sallies, Caddis, and Green Drakes. There have also been a good number of boats out there chasing them so you might check with your shuttle driver if you prefer to avoid the crowds. The big bugs can be found anywhere from…

Clarity Report / Salmonfly Update

Recent rain has muddied up the Yellowstone. People have been nymphing and catching a few but clarity has been less than a foot and not ideal for dries. The weather is calling for 80% chance of rain this afternoon and tonight, which means the Yellowstone will likely be muddy again tomorrow and possibly Thursday. The…

Clarity Report

Clarity today in town is definitely a little dirtier than yesterday. The hydrologic prediction is calling for a rise in CFS over the next few days but dropping by the Friday 6/26. There are no signs of big bugs on the Stone yet, but possibly by this weekend depending on how cold and rainy things…

Runoff Update

Although the Yellowstone has been dropping we are expecting the river to come back up this week. We had a few days with day time temperatures in the high 80’s which eventually caused the Lamar and other rivers to come up. While temps are going to be lower starting Sunday, we also have some rain…

Runoff Season

While runoff on the Yellowstone remains in full force, tailwaters, spring creeks, and lakes have been fishing well. We expect the PMD’s on the creeks to hatch around June 20th or so, with the thickest hatches occurring right towards the end of June. With snow water equivalent for the upper Yellowstone Basin at 80% snow…

Happy Memorial Day

Clarity on the Yellowstone yesterday (5/24) was less than a foot. There is a chance right on the edges with a streamer however, and that means a chance of a nice brown if you get lucky. Last week’s hydrologic prediction was right, at least the river was on the drop the past few days. Expect…

Lakes, Tailwaters, & Spring Creeks

With a current rising and muddy river we have been looking for other places to fish. Some of the best options out there right now are lakes, tailwaters, and spring creeks. Local and private lakes are always a treat this time of year because the fish are hungry and most haven’t been caught yet. We…

Clarity Report

With temps in the 80’s yesterday the river bumped up significantly. Normally for all fishing intents and purposes the Yellowstone would be blown until late June but with colder temps ahead late this week and weekend there could be one last window according to the hydrologic prediction. As always if you choose to float make…

Mother’s Day Caddis

The Yellowstone looks worth a shot tonight and possibly the next few days, (although rain is in the forecast). Yesterday, (5/9) the river had about a foot and a half to two feet of visibility. If you are looking for blanket caddis hatches, head into the valley. There are some caddis in town but most…
