Yellowstone River - September 22nd, 2011
  • Recorded:
  • Sunny
  • 79 ° F 
  • Fishing: Good
Seems we are back in the sun and summer look... Only a light frost this morning and promises of sun all day along with rising temperatures.  Back to the 80s from the looks of things.  Mayfly dominance may have to take a side seat to resurgance in terrestrials including hoppers.  Walked through the grass this morning on the way to look at the river and there's still plenty of kickers around! Think hoppity-hops in smaller sizes with tan, yellow, and olive bodies, as well as flying ants, beetles as good afternoon searching patterns. Both Green as well as Gray drakes are in the mix.  Blue Wing Olives (baetis...) are most definitely out and about each PM as well.  Some folks are turning to nymphing in the AM as it has been slow to get going.  Uncle Whitey has been brutal though..... It's a really tough call- extra coffee and the complete sports page re-read or get on the water first and stay out front even through AM duldrums.... you choose.

OK, this is fall!  Mostly cloudy skies, calling for rain showers, but hold on----High Wind alerts today...  Keep your fingers crossed it won't actually be the case.  The hopper fishing has definitely started to subside.   Look to grass munchers in smaller sizes in tan, yellow, and olive, as well as flying ants, beetles, and large to medium sized drake patterns as well as our ol buddy purple haze are the go to patterns.  Both Green as well as Gray drakes are showing up with more and more regularity.  Given a really good overcast, cool day with the threat of rain showers and low wind, it could be a banner day!  Blue Wing Olives (baetis...) are most definitely out and about each day right now as well.  We haven't seen a WOW hatch of them yet, but I'd bet 'that kinda day' isn't far off.

Cooler mornings.  Heck, even a frost..... Definitely harbingers that Fall is (should) be here.  A small but nice cooling off period sure did help out. Can't say as that it's 'rocking' crazy great out there, but it's solid.  Especially if you put your time in. The hopper fishing has definitely started to subside.   Look to grass munchers in smaller sizes in tan, yellow, and olive, as well as flying ants, beetles, and large to medium sized drake patterns as well as our ol buddy purple haze are the go to patterns.  Both Green as well as Gray drakes are showing up with more and more regularity.  Given a really good overcast, cool day with the threat of rain showers and low wind, it could be a banner day!  Blue Wing Olives (baetis...) are most definitely out and about each day right now as well.  We haven't seen a WOW hatch of them yet, but I'd bet 'that kinda day' isn't far off.

The hopper fishing has definitely started to subside.  Even though it is still a bit warm for our Montana tastes this week and sunny.  The weather looks like a broken record, or Groundhog Day as it remains unseasonably warm in the upper 80s and without a storm in sight.  Can't say as that it's 'rocking' crazy great out ther, but it's solid.  Especially if you put your time in.  Being first on the water is making a big difference!  You don't want to be the 13th boat.....  Hoppers in smaller sizes as well as flying ants, beetles, and large to medium sized drake patterns as well as our ol buddy purple haze are the go to patterns.  Have definitely seen a fair number of fall drakes starting up and fish are definitely respondinig.  Now's the time...    Yes, there are some dudes out there very early and again late, late that have been yanking streamers and getting a few...  Nymphing?? Not really sure, we haven't been doing it.

Happy Labor Day weekend!  I think the Big Event may be starting to dwindle down just a bit.  It's not "stupid good" fishing like it was a little while ago.  It's definitely not bad though by any means!  Lots of peeps on the water the past weeks had educated a bunch of Yellowstone fish to not necessarily slam every fly put in front of them.  Goldenstone and hopper patterns still rule the roost, however, smaller tippet sizes (4x instead of 2) may be the call to actually get solid eats instead of slaps. Don't neglect smaller terrestrials as well.  Ants, beetles, even bee patterns continue to be good alternatives.  We may see a few fall drakes starting soon.  Now's the time...    Yes, there are some dudes out there very early and again late, late that have been yanking streamers and getting a few...  Nymphing?? Not really sure, we haven't been doing it.

Fishing has been good this week.  And expect that to continue to the be the case for the foreseeable future.  We're hearing from folks fishing from just outside Yellowstone Park by Gardiner all the way on east of Livingston to Big Timber -and even beyond.  Things have been pretty consistent all around.  Fishing big bushy dry fly patterns like the Chubby Chernobyl and other goldenstone/hopper type dries as welll as standard attractor patterns are all getting eats.  Don't neglect smaller terrestrials as well.  Ants, beetles, even bee patterns have produced.    Streamer boys enjoying a good bite at first and last light, and if we have overcast skies, too.  Nymphing?? Not really sure, we haven't been doing it.
