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...

Holding Pattern?

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...

People are Asking

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...

Picture Says it All

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...

Folks been asking. Here's seeing! Yes, that's Emigrant peak in the background. Isn't it looking cool with all that snow? Oh- you want to know about the caddis. Well, they're right here. And down valley all the way to and below Livingston. Today it hit 70 degrees by the thermometer outside the...

Posted & filed under Yellowstone River Fishing Reports.

  Getting around the valley a bit today, we've been keeping an eye on what's usable as far as boat ramps.  And what's not.  It's early, but there's been folks asking.  So, here's a quick rundown on where you can and where you CAN'T put-in or take out your...

Left with an Empty Feeling

Posted & filed under Yellowstone River Fishing Reports.

  Eerie.  That one word describes what it's like along the banks of the Yellowstone River right now.  There's no one.  Empty river, empty fishing access sites.  Nothing.  In places where on a typical August day there would be 10 or more trucks with trailers...

 @Mill Crk @ Emigrant Bridge       Strong storms moving through earlier in the week had the fortunate effect of much liked precipitation.  Soak the garden, put snow on the mountain tops kind of precipitation and cooler weather.  As we reported earlier, the...

Fishing on the Yellowstone continues!

2016

Posted & filed under Yellowstone River Fishing Reports.

It has been a great week over here in Paradise Valley. A ton of bug activity has kept fish on the rise and the bite has been outstanding. The Salmon Flies seem to be mostly on the upper stretches of the Yellowstone near Gardiner and above. You will see the occasional adult fluttering lower....

Marching Toward "Spring"

Posted & filed under Yellowstone River Fishing Reports.

  The weather.  Always something that confounds us anglers.  Not very often is it "just right".  Instead it's too sunny and one can blame a lack of a "bite" on the premise that the big orange orb in the sky has fish staying in the depths.  Or the case may be that it's...

Posted & filed under Yellowstone River Fishing Reports.

There's snow in them mountains! Yesterday reports on the Yellowstone were mixed. We heard of very good fishing above Yankee Jim Canyon and in the upper valley. Mid and low valley were not so great. Fish were being taken on mostly mayfly patterns. BWO's, and Drakes. This was due to the cooler...
