The fishing on the Yellowstone has been slow lately. A few nice browns have been caught on streamers here and there but now many of the browns are already up tributaries, in side channels, or in the tailouts looking for gravel. As they begin to spawn we’ll look to give them a break to get the deed done. On the sunny days it has been windy, on the cloudy/rainy days it has been calm but still we haven’t seen a ton of Fall baetis this year. The Spring Creeks have been a good option (rates are now $40 per person) and a better chance of seeing baetis and midges if the wind behaves. The browns are starting to spawn in the creeks as well so be careful where you tread and avoid fishing to actively spawning fish. Give us a call for a wind report! 1-406-222-7130.
