The Yellowstone has been raging the past few days with lots of cottonwoods floating down the river. Reports in the news say 8 people were rescued after their raft got stuck on a tree on June 4th. It has also been very muddy and not fishable. We expect to be back on the river the last week of June. If things change and look better before than we’ll let you know. For now we have been focussing on the Spring Creeks, the Lower Madison, and Lakes in our area. We are pleased to report PMD’s have been seen both the Spring Creeks and the Lower Madison. We have seen callibaetis out on the lakes already, although leeches have been the king so far. We have also heard of Salmonflies on the Firehole. Give us a call to book a trip! 1-406-222-7130.

The CFS on both the Lamar and Yellowstone have paralleled each other, although the CFS on the Yellowstone has been much greater. The weather ahead looks warm but nothing out of the norm. Fingers are always crossed this time of year, (especially after the flood of 2022), but knock on wood – the we should have a normal runoff this year.

The Hydraulic prediction for the Yellowstone as of 6/7/24, well below flood stage which is a relief for many to see…

There’s still a fair amount of snow to come out of the mountains, 6/7.
