The good news is the Mother’s day caddis on the Yellowstone are making a comeback.  Bad news – we might only have a couple days before the mud shows up.  If you’ve built up your “sick” days, today or tomorrow might be a good time to call in sick.  Last evening was one of those nights where you thought to yourself – huh – there really are a bunch of fish in the Yellowstone.  Side channels, eddies, and slower rip rap edges were erupting with risers.  The Valley had the most amount of caddis with the famous “mats of caddis” but there were also thousands of caddis down low and plenty of fish up eating them.  Corwin has already shown a small spike and Shield’s is bound to blow soon.  Get out and enjoy it while you can!

yum... hot wings taste good!
Clarity in the Valley last night (5/13)
Definitely less clarity down low, but still good to go
