Both Clarity and water temp are looking good on the Yellowstone right now.  The browns are starting to get some vibrant colors and are getting more and more aggressive as we move into mid September.  The best streamer fishing is still to come but at least the streamer bite is starting to get better and better.  Next week we have some cold weather moving in which should really seal the deal.  For now, (at least for numbers) dry flies have been working best.  If you are up for the task, you can catch about 40 whitefish a day by nymphing beadheads in the Valley right now.  It’s actually a great chance for novice anglers to get used to fishing a nymph rig.  Aside from the white fish the Valley has a large trout fish count per mile right now.  Try fishing dries or smaller nymphs to keep the white fish off.
