The fish are still looking up on the Yellowstone and taking dries.  Hoppers and chubbies have been standard fare for a while now but ants and smaller dries are starting to become a staple on the menu as well.  You have to be patient when the bigger fish come up, we’ve seen lots of people pull the fly out of the fish’s mouth too early.  A little micro twitch right at the correct moment has been key to initiate a strike on the larger fish.  There have been plenty of 8-14″ fish that are more eager to eat and we have been seeing a lot of these rise in the riffles and inside foam lines.  Give us a call to book a trip!  1-406-222-7130.

There are still some heavy callibaetis hatches on local on private lakes as well.  Hoppers have been working as well, especially if there is a little bit of a breeze to help blow a couple naturals in.  Give us a call if you’d like to enjoy the day on one of the lakes!  1-406-222-7130.
