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…

Salmonfly Fever!

Salmonflies have been thick, albeit spotty.  Now you can find Salmonflies, Goldenstones, and Sallies from Emigrant all the way up to Gardiner and beyond.  Despite all the bugs, the bite has been a on the slow side, indicating that the fish are likely gorged in certain sections.  Fishing above or below the hatch can actually…

Clarity Report

The Yellowstone has cleared early and is now fishing well. CFS has been consistently dropping and clarity has been getting better daily with plenty of visibility. Salmonflies have been spotted although not many eats on dries just yet. Lots of other rivers are also in play right now making it a hard choice on where…

Clarity Report

Surprisingly there is a little clarity on the river today although the Spring Creeks, Madison, Missouri, Bighorn, and local / private lakes are going to be a better option tomorrow and next week. With higher temps reaching the 80’s next week runoff will be back in full swing. Give us a call to book a…

Clarity & Snow Pack Report

The Yellowstone has just enough clarity that it may be worth a shot today. The Lamar looks like it took a bump however (and more rain is expected tonight), so today could be the last call for a double haul. Snowpack has been fluctuating with the recent Spring storms. Currently the Upper Yellowstone River Basin…

Clarity Report

Clarity in town today looks around a foot or so but we have darker/muddier water coming from Gardiner. The Sheild’s has been hanging in there but will likely be spitting mud in the next couple days. Despite the decent clarity and good numbers of caddis the fishing has been slow in general. The streamer bite…

Clarity Report

The Yellowstone has dropped and cleared up quite a bit with the recent cold spell. While the Mother’s Day Caddis have dwindled significantly, we do expect to see one more “pop” as warmer temps arrive later this week. For now there is a good window of opportunity for nymph fishing and throwing streamers. Give us…
