How did August sneak up so fast? Seems like everything around here has been fishing well and in many cases, just keep getting better. Fish are looking up which is nice. Been hearing more and more about hopper bite and terrestrial patterns being the goods. What's your favorite grasshopper...

Posted & filed under Yellowstone River Fishing Reports.

Yellowstone River is starting to shape up pretty decently. Kaitlyn here found herself a dandy of a brown floating the upper valley yesterday. You can see by her smile that she's digging fly fishing! Is it Rockem-Sockem fishing out there? Not really. Just being honest. But, folks are...

What's the Yellowstone looking like? Take a look yourself. Here's a pick from the Mill Creek bridge. Yeah, if the river doesn't head back into higher CFS range again tomorrow or Tuesday from the high 80 degree temps we are going to get, things could be turning the corner here real quick! It's...

As is so often the case with the Mother's Day caddis, there's a fine line between when the caddis really pop and the hatch is in full force and the onset of runoff. Pretty hard to hold back 130% snowpack when the days are hitting 80 degrees. We're not wholly down and out in the area. Yes, the...
