Bright & Sunny Can Still Mean Good Fishing
MR


Fishing on the Yellowstone has been heating up just as rapidly as our daytime temps.  Lots of people have been getting out and enjoying the good bit of warm, sunny spring weather we are seeing.  Fish seem to be liking it as well!  Starting mid-morning the river as well as the spring creeks have been seeing good midge activity.  There are some baetis starting as well.  Though these have been mostly on days there is cloud cover.  Looking like a change is coming for the weekend with a cooling trend and some moisture.  Great news if you are a streamer junky.  Though this nice Yellowstone brown didn't mind the sun too much and nabbed a streamer swung just off the bank.  We're hoping for more action like this to continue throughout the spring culminating with the Mother's Day caddis sometime at the end of the month or early in May.  Time to get your gear out and enjoy the good pre-runoff fishing!
