Yellowstone River Report 2/22/2023

Date: 02/22/2023

Current Conditions

The Yellowstone River is going to be very slushy and icy after this recent cold front but expect a high near 50 degrees on Sunday. Once the river clears again the fishing should pick back up. Nymphing with a worm or a stonefly nymph can almost always get it done. If either of these are not working soft hackles or perdigons can also be deadly options. Swinging small streamers can be a good winter option as well. You may see some fish rising to midges in really slow moving slicks. If you do, a small Parachute Adams or a Cluster Midge are my go to patterns.

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.
