Yellowstone River Report 6/23/2019

Date: 06/23/2019

The Yellowstone is flowing at about 12,000 cfs in Livingston, making it still relatively dangerous. The water is also pretty dirty still. If you must get out there, stick to the slower stretches in Paradise Valley and fish a big dark stonefly nymph or a dark streamer close to the banks. Be very careful if you are floating. Keep an eye out for trees, logs and new sweepers.

Fins & Feathers is a full-service Bozeman fly shop and Montana fly fishing outfitter. Yellowstone River fly fishing trips are available year-round with our Bozeman fly fishing guides.

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.
