Clarity today (5/4 at 7:50AM) - about the same as yesterday

Clarity is about the same as this morning as it was yesterday.  The river fished slow yesterday although we managed to land a few decent browns.  We did see caddis, but very few (as in a couple dozen flying around and no rising fish).  There were actually more March Brown adults on the water than anything, but still not many takers on top if any.

If you decide to get out there and try today look for structure tight to the bank like logs or overhanging branches. Many of the tributaries that flow into the Yellowstone are still crystal clear, so you always have a few spots here and there to post up and fish for a while.  You won’t see many people and the mountains are absolutely gorgeous right now.  With warm temps in the 70’s plus rain later this tonight and this weekend it could be last call for double haul.
