Yellowstone River Report 9/14/2021

Date: 09/14/2021

Current Conditions

The dry fly bite has slowed down quite a bit over the last few days. You may see a few fish rising and might be able to trick a few with hoppers but it is not nearly as good as it has been in weeks past. Peak time should be from 12-2 with hoppers beetles and ants. Attractor dries such as Low Rider Stones or Para Wulff's will get fish here and there. Some good droppers for your hoppers would be lightning bugs, Perdigons, spanish bullets, and hares ears. These can be dropped further than one might think. I have been fishing my dropper with about 3 feet of tippet connecting it to my foamy dry fly. Trout have been sitting in speedy riffles still but can be found in a wide variety of water. Streamer fishing in the morning has been good and great with some cloud cover. Some patterns we recommend are black double gongas, natural dungeons, and sparkle minnows. Nymphing with a pats rubber legs and prince nymph or caddis pupas below it has also been productive.

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.
