The Yellowstone is fishing ON FIRE again!   Guide trips have been boating over 50 fish lately, (some whitefish of course) but mostly trout the past few days.  All of the guides we work with have been saying the Yellowstone is fishing as good as it has been all summer.  The guys at the shop have been boating over 2o trout each night after work.  The big browns have been eating hoppers, chubbies, and a variety of dropper nymphs.   Streamers have been working here and there (mostly dead-drifted) but should be working better the next few days with the forecast rain.  Small dry droppers have been the ticket for getting more numbers of trout to the boat.  Purple Haze has been our number one seller this past week (so get them while supplies last).   The dry fly fishing should get even better the next few days with the clouds and rain.  Expect to see both Fall drakes (Fall Mahoganies and Hecuba), as well as some Fall baetis.  We like either the original Parachute Adams or the hi-vis Parachute Adams on the river for a baetis pattern.  We also like fishing a variety of René Harrop’s baetis patterns as a dropper off the Adams or drake pattern.  If you don’t like the sound of fishing in the rain it looks like we are back to sun this weekend as well as next week.  Give us a call to book a trip!  406-222-7130.
