Finally, August 18th we’re starting to see more hoppers in the morning guide boxes.  Midnight stones, caddis, flying ants, spruce moths, stonefly nymphs, caddis beadheads, and streamers are all working on the Yellowstone as well.  The dry fly fishing up high has been lights out, but unfortunately crowded as well.  Expect to see 30 rigs at every put in.  Not to worry, everyone seems to be catching fish and having a good time out there. The river is currently flowing at 4770 cfs in town and dropping.  Pretty soon the big ones will be off the bank lie and holding in the middle of the river…
