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…

Caddis Popped but spotty, mud coming

The caddis have “popped” but not in crazy numbers yet and the fish haven’t been on the dries very hard. Clarity on the Yellowstone today is definitely worse than yesterday but still good enough to catch a few on dries. We have had the best luck on caddis emergers. Today is on the windy side,…

Mother’s Day Caddis?

With great anticipation, people have been asking about the Mother’s Day Caddis hatch but we have not seen any dries yet. There have been some blue wings on the water, (especially last weekend). Water temps have hit 52 degrees already, so we are expecting the hatch to pop soon. The streamer action has been a…

March Fishing Report

With the warmer weather we’ve been experiencing, a lot of people are calling and itching to get out on the river. People are starting to float river-wide, and the majority of the shelf ice is gone. Fishing has still been a little slower, but the sunshine does feel nice. The weekend forecast is calling for…

Winter Fishing Still Slow

Unfortunately we’ve still had plenty of cold and wind over here on the Yellowstone. Each morning this week there has been slush ice floating on the surface. Some days the slush has melted by the afternoon and on some days it stays, making it hard to get a good drift. Either way the fish have…
