Lower Madison

Things have been looking a little icy on the Lower Madison lately.  Be sure to bring a 4-wheel drive vehicle with decent clearance if you are heading to either side of Bear Trap canyon.  With these colder temperatures nymphing is going to be more productive than swinging or fishing streamers.  As pretty as winter fishing…

Winter Fishing

Yes, people have still been fishing but it has been COLD!  If you do get out there be sure to dress warm, with many layers, a good hat, winter buff, and gloves – especially for those days into negative digits!  This week looks much warmer however, Friday looks like a high of 39, Saturday is…

Tailwaters Fishing Well

Fishing on the Yellowstone has been pretty slow lately.  There are a few spots where warmer water comes into the river where fish are more active, but tailwaters like the Missouri, Bighorn, and Lower Madison have been fishing much better.  Midges, sow bugs, scuds, egg patterns, and streamers have been the name of the game….

The browns are just about ready to spawn in the spring creeks, and have already started in DePuy’s.  As always, we ask anglers to be cautious on where they are stepping in order to avoid stepping on any redds (spawning beds), as this will ensure the eggs a better chance of survival.   It will…

Yellowstone Slowing Down Some

In general the fishing is starting to slow down on the Yellowstone, but at least a few big fish have been getting caught!  This past week has been very sunny with only a few baetis and midges on the water.  We expect the dry fly game to get better towards the end of the week,…

Fall on the Yellowstone…

Last week’s colder weather has kept river traffic to a minimum and brought out some nice browns.  This week looks much warmer, (and brighter – for better or for worse).  Leaves are still looking good and the wind, at least through Thursday, is looking like single digits up to 15 mph.   This would be…
