The Yellowstone River is still a little dirty, especially below Livingston. Nymphing has been the best with Pat's Rubberlegs, Prince nymphs, Caddis larva, Zebra Midges, and Copper Johns. Streamer fishing has been really hit or miss but this is a good time of year to throw some especially if the nymphing is slow. We have heard of decent Midge dry fishing on the right day and the BWOs are just around the corner. Watch for fish rising to midges in the foamy back eddies and runs. A small Parachute Adams or a Griffith's Gnat or Peacock Cluster a great flies to trick these fish.

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.
