The Yellowstone has been fishing ok. Expect the worm bite to be solid after the precipitation last night. Streamer fishing can be really good this time of year or it can be completely off. That being said, it is always worth trying a streamer on the Yellowstone in October. White, olive, and black are good colors to try. This is when you can occasionally connect with a MEGA critter. Trail your worm with a stonefly nymph, midges, Baetis, or small olive soft hackles. Some dry fly action is possible in slower moving water as BWO's start to hatch. Cloudy and windless days will be the best days to search for trout eating on the surface.

The Yellowstone River is the quintessential large western river and provides a unique Montana fly fishing opportunity with over 100 miles of quality, wild trout water. In fact, the Yellowstone River is the longest free-flowing river in the lower 48. There is every type of water to be found through its course, including the whitewater sections of Yankee Jim Canyon, the placid glides of Paradise Valley, and the long riffles of the lower sections near Big Timber.
