“Mad Dogg Madi Ice” with her first big brown on a hopper!

The Yellowstone has been dropping steady and fishing well the past couple of weeks. Fish have started looking up and eating hoppers! This comes as a welcomed change since the whitefish bite has been bountiful, especially when fishing size 12-16 nymphs. Water temperatures have been in the 62-68 degree range. Keep your thermometers handy in the afternoon as we have some high 90’s in our forecast this weekend and next week. When water temps reach over 68 degrees trout can become more stressed due to lower oxygen levels. As always, be sure to handle fish appropriately. Give us a call to book a trip! 1-406-222-7130.

If water temps get warmer in the afternoon, go for a keep ’em wet head shot instead… Photo: Guy Thomas
