Recent cold temperatures have created a good amount of slush ice on the Yellowstone lately. Although the forecast is calling for some slightly warmer temps the next few days, (22-47°F), the river will likely still have some ice floating in it. In addition to the snow and ice, we have also been experiencing lots of wind, which has made floating a less appealing option. If you are looking to get out there and fish with more success, the best option is going to be the Paradise Valley Spring Creeks. Armstrong’s and DePuy’s are currently at their $40 winter rates and Nelson’s goes to their $40 winter rates starting November 1st. With warmer water coming up out of the aquifers at 52°F the fish will be more active, there will be a better chance of a hatch (midges and baetis), not to mention warmer toes. Give us a call for a slush or wind up date as things will be changing daily on the Yellowstone. 1-406-222-7130.
