Yellowstone River Report 4/5/2021

Date: 04/05/2021

Current Conditions

The Yellowstone River has been ok but it should start to pick up more as we move closer towards run-off. Nymphing has been the best with Pat's Rubberlegs, Prince Nymphs, Lightning Bugs, Copper Johns, Zebra Midges, Caddis Larva, Baetis imitations, and dead-drifted buggers. Streamer fishing has been hit or miss with a few fish being caught on Olive, Yellow, and White. 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.
