Getting out early has been the best game plan. Fish are willing to come up to hoppers and other terrestrials first thing. But unless there is some cloud cover they quickly get chased to the bottom by the bright sun and bluebird skies. Nymphing has been pretty reliant, but you…

Morning is the best time to fish when the water temps are the coolest for the day. Hopper fishing has been good on some days, and ant patterns trailed behind the hopper have also been effective. Nymphing with rubberlegs and various bead-head nymphs are taking fish when they aren't looking up for dries.

The Yellowstone is still fishing well. For dry fly, try using ant patterns. The Hopper bite is getting started. Best reports seem to be with pink or tan patterns. A handfull of fish are still eating the Chubby well.  Nymphing has been extremely productive for fish numbers but they won't…

The Yellowstone is a great option right now. Keep an eye on the flows before you head out and watch out for summer rainstorms that can push mud plugs through the river. The streamer bite has been good from lots of reports, and fishing hoppers is starting to pick up…

The flows on the Yellowstone are coming down after the rain in the Park. The river is still quite dirty but could clean up enough to fish up high in the valley this evening. It should be in good enough shape to fish tomorrow hopefully.

Flows on the Yellowstone spiked from all of the rain, so I would expect that it will be muddy for a few days. It can fish well with a foot or so of visibility with streamer patterns. We'll see how it goes and keep you up to date.

The Yellowstone has been fishing well this week. There has been some dirty water moving through some sections with the rainstorms we’ve been seeing this week. The streamer bite has been good, as has the dry fly fishing. Caddis flies, smaller attractors and chubbies have all been catching fish. Nymphing…

There is a mud plug moving through the Yellowstone right now from the park down to Grey Bear. It should push through fairly quick, and everything else should still be fishing well. Dry fly wise chubbies, caddis, PMD’s and smaller attractors will all be working. Nymphing with stoneflies and smaller,…

The big bugs have reached the Yellowstone National Park line. Still some Goldenstones down lower into Yankee Jim, and Sallies even further down. A size 10 purple chubby was picking up fish yesterday, try running a 18 black caddis behind that and you should do fine. Other than that nymphing…
