Yellowstone River Fishing Report October 9, 2018

Yellowstone River Report 10/9/2018

Oct, 09 2018

The Yellowstone has still been fishing well. The fishing may be slower in the morning until the water warms up a little around noon or one. BWO activity is getting really good and we have been fooling fish with small adams and the BWO Quill Gordon Parachute. Streamer fishing has still been hit or miss but reports have been a bit more on the positive side. Natural colors like black and olive have been moving fish but flashy white stuff has also done well. Slim profile streamers have done the best. Dirt snakes will be in the water anytime after a rain or snow storm and can be properly imitated using a San Juan Worm. Nymphing is a really good bet at the moment. Smaller flashy mayfly beadheads and stonefly nymphs have been the best options. Little Spankers and soft hackle Lightning Bugs have been our favorites behind a Pat's rubberleg.
