The Yellowstone did not fish well yesterday on the lower stretches except for Jim.  We mostly tossed around big streamers with little action except for Jim.  A few fish were eating under the indicator on rubberlegs.  Water levels are still very high and fast.  Visibility is about 18in at Springdale.
