YNP is open once again! The Firehole is the way to go right now. Caddis have been popping off as have the PMD's and Yellow Sallies. Dry fly action has been solid using PMD duns such as the PMD Quill Gordon Parachute, or PMD Last Chance Cripples. Caddis patterns that have worked include the Crime Scene Caddis or the Olive X2 Caddis. Small yellow chubbies have been our favorite for surface sally eating fish. Caddis pupa such as the Mangy Caddis or the Shop Vac has been great subsurface. Crackback PMD's and PMD Bubblebacks have been my favorites subsurface. Salmonflies have been spotted on the Gibbon but not so much on the Firehole quite yet.
Full Day guided fly-fishing trips are our standard offering and offer the best opportunity to truly get out and experience the fly-fishing opportunities around Bozeman that attract anglers from around the world.
Looking for a quick introduction to fly fishing or only have a few hours to get out on the water with one of our fly fishing guides? A half-day float on the lower Madison is likely to be the perfect choice.
