Hopper Feeding Frenzy

The Yellowstone has been fishing well lately.  Lots of hoppers on the water… the fish have been taking all sizes and colors so you can’t really choose a bad hopper pattern.  They have also been eating stoneflies, attractors, ants, and other terrestrials, as well as nymphs and streamers.  Give us a call to book a…

Clarity Report

The river had a couple good plugs of mud flowing through it this weekend.  Today things look green and good to go, with the exception of going down low (past Springdale).  Yesterday the river was clear from East End to Columbus but that section will likely see some mud today.  Yesterday we had trips in…

Clarity Report

The Yellowstone is going to be tiger striped with mud the next couple days.  The smaller of the two plugs has just about reached town now (Friday 8/9 at 6:30PM) with some clear water above it.  The Lamar spiked badly however, even Soda Butte was muddy today which means up high will likely be muddy…

Hoppers and Stones

The hopper fishing has been solid lately.  A long drift seems to be the common denominator as the fish have been eating all sizes and colors.  A tiny twitch here and there can help trigger a fish into eating, but a big twitches that drag the fly have been putting them down.  Chub/rub has also…

Hopper Time

Hopper time has started in SW Montana.  The Madison, Yellowstone, and Yellowstone National Park have all been fishing well this past week with terrestrials, especially hoppers.  Looks like a little rain today (Saturday 7/27) but plenty of hot sunny days coming up next week.  CFS at Carter’s has dropped to 5600 which is a good…

Yellowstone slowing down slightly

Following last week’s action the Yellowstone has certainly gotten a little tougher.  That said, some nice fish are still getting caught and the best guides are still doing well, mostly on nymphs or streamers.  The dry fly fishing up high has still been very good however, although there will a be compromise on the size…

Clarity Report

Despite the recent afternoon thunderstorms, the Yellowstone is still good to go clarity wise.  With just a couple more big storms on the radar we should be out of the woodworks by wednesday, provide the Lamar doesn’t get hit hard this evening or tomorrow afternoon.   We did just get a mid-day report today (7/15)…
