Clarity 7/11 (6:45AM)

We have been fishing the Yellowstone for about a week now. Despite clarity issues, the Yellowstone has been producing some trout and quite a few whitefish. On average each boat has been catching 0-5 trout and 5-10 whitefish a day. No lunkers have been landed yet, but lots of solid rainbows and cutthroat. There have been a lot of insects hatching, which has been nice to see. Salmonflies are thick from Emigrant up to Gardiner. Green drakes, PMD’s, Goldenstones, Sallies, and caddis have been out as well. Carbella boat ramp is still officially CLOSED, (although people have been illegally launching there anyway). BLM plans to have a cat in there this week to clear the boat ramp of sand. Call your local shuttle driver to get a feel for what floats are possible right now.
