Clarity Report

For the best clarity you’ll want to head to the valley.  Carter’s to Sacajawea Park has good clarity, but after that Billman creek is making the town section pretty muddy.  From 89 down is even worse do to the Shield’s.  The spring creeks have been fishing well with the arrival of spring baetis.   On…

Clarity Report

Things have definitely gotten a little dirtier on the Stone with all the recent rain.  Billman creek, which runs into the Yellowstone behind the lumber yard is making town muddy.  Above that you’ll find clearer water but it is still off color.  The Shield’s has been a mud factory as well, taking down low off…

Clarity Report

The Yellowstone was on the rise yesterday and is definitely a little dirtier than it was a couple days ago.  That said, there’s definitely a chance of nymphing a couple up with about a foot or more of visibility.   The streamer bite has its windows but for the most part has been slow.  Expect…

Ice Ice Baby

Looks like it’s about time to start putting away the skis and getting the drift boat out.  People have been floating with reasonable success anywhere from Gardner to HWY 89 Bridge.  Below that the Shield’s is making everything too muddy.   The water temp is still chilly so nymphing is going to be your best…

Warmer Weather On The Way

Looks like we have a warmer week ahead of us with temps into the 60’s by Thursday and Friday.  With lows in the 33-35 degree range at night we will likely see more mud coming in the near future.  The Shield’s is still muddy but there is good clarity for a while in and above…

Clarity in and out for a while

Down low is still muddy due to the Shield’s pumping in mud, but above 89 the Yellowstone’s clarity improved quite a bit over the weekend.  Certain boat ramps are now open while others remain challenging and even unusable at the moment.  Water temps have been very low with all the melting snow and ice and…

Still Icy

Things are still looking pretty icy out on the Yellowstone.  As nice as the weather is this week, we have to remember just how cold it got (and stayed) most of February!  Most all of the boat ramps on the Yellowstone are currently inaccessible right now, and some sections of the Yellowstone remain completely frozen…

Yellowstone Still Unfloatable

With Spring Fever brewing at an all time high people have been jonesin’ to hit the Stone.  Wade fishing is still the way to go over hear.  Many of the boat ramps are still full of snow, even parking is difficult without getting stuck much less towing a raft and trailer.  Don’t even think about…

Tough River Access

Some parts of the river are still completely frozen over while others have open water.  The problem is we had so much snow last week that many of the Fishing Access Sites are unplowed and difficult to access without fear of getting your vehicle stuck.  It looks like next week’s weather is a little nicer,…

Still Icy Out There

People have been asking if there is a good section to float the Yellowstone right now and the answer is no.  There are some spots with open water making it possible to wade fish the Yellowstone, however we do no recommend floating. Even if the put-in looks good and the take out looks doable, there…
