Cooler temperatures and brisk morning air have become the harbingers of Fall fishing. Hoppers remain the main food source, although guides are finally starting to wonder over to the streamer bin. Mornings continue to be slow fishing with fish looking up for Hoppers, ants, beetles, and other smaller dries from 11:00-3:00. A few nice fish have been caught on nymphs as well, mostly on rubberlegs, buggerlegs, and jigged beadhead nymphs. There is a lot less smoke in the air now, which is a welcomed change from last week. Yellowstone National Park has been fishing well, albeit being a little crowded. We have heard reports of drakes hatching on cloudier days, however ants, crickets, and hoppers have been working best during the absence of a hatch, especially on sunny days. The local Spring Creeks have also been fishing well. Sulphurs and midges have been the main staples, with scuds, terrestrials, and leeches working as well. Give us a call if you’d like to book a trip! 406-222-7130.
