The 17.2 mile stretch from Emigrant to Pine creek is now reopened as of today, Friday 9/23. Now the entire Yellowstone is back open from the YNP boarder to it’s confluence with the Missouri River. After the closure was lifted we were eager to get on the river and see how it was fishing. Our guides found some outstanding fishing and it seems that the river is back on track to a healthy recovery. Less whitefish in the Yellowstone means more food and space for the trout to grow larger. Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks are also telling us that the surviving fish have the ability to build up an immunity towards the parasite, meaning this shouldn’t affect the Yellowstone in years to come. We’d love to get you out on the water and show you how beautiful and healthy our river is. Give us a call for the latest report or to book a guide trip… 406-222-7130.
