Salmonflies have been thick, albeit spotty.  Now you can find Salmonflies, Goldenstones, and Sallies from Emigrant all the way up to Gardiner and beyond.  Despite all the bugs, the bite has been a on the slow side, indicating that the fish are likely gorged in certain sections.  Fishing above or below the hatch can actually be more productive.  Many of our guides love fishing the Park, we should see big bugs in the Park until 7/15 or so.  The streamer fishing has been on and off from Pine Creek down. Down low is still a little “pushy” with turbulent currents so bring your “A game”.  Be sure you have an expert on the oars if you head down low as there are some sketchy spots that will require an experienced oarsman.  Other hatches include #10-12 chocolate sedges, #16-18 caddis, #10-14 green drakes, #16-18 black ants and 10-14 hoppers.  Give us a call to book a trip, it has been busy and difficult to find guides! 1-406-222-7130.  

Salmonflies have been thick from Point of rocks up into YNP
