Yellowstone River Report 7/17/2021

Date: 07/17/2021

Current Conditions

The Yellowstone has been fishing really well this last week. The mornings have fished slightly better than the afternoons. If you are out there for the hopper bite expect the best action late morning to early afternoon. A lot of caddis have been out along with some PMD's and yellow sallies. The evening caddis bite has been pretty solid for trout and whitefish. Nymphing has produced many many whities with trout here and there. Rainbow Prince Nymphs, Spankers, and Sparkle Pupa have been whitefish champs. Rubberleg's have still been producing. Streamer fishing is now more hit/miss than it has been but big fish have been the players especially during overcast conditions.

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.
