Yellowstone River - September 28th, 2013

  • Partly cloudy
  • 60 ° F 
  • Fishing: Good
Word of the day is WIND.  Today, tomorrow, and Monday things are looking like they are going to blow!  Water is fine.  Good clarity and fish have been back on the regular fall stuff.  AM is slow to get going so most are either stripping streamers or going underneath with rubberlegs and droppers till things warm up a bit.  Afternoons have been showing a smattering of baetis and fish have been up on top once those appear.  By no means have we had a really good consistent hatch though.   Hoping that fills in!

Getting back on track.  Water clarity is over 2 feet here in the upper Paradise Valley and things are settling back to more normal.  There's still a tinge of color to the river, but it's getting far better!  Mud is still going to plague the lower river east of Livingston for a couple days yet as it flushes downstream.  Here in the valley, you may find a few trout willing to eat a well presented dry on top.  Consistently though, it's going to be "down under" an indicator that will see the most action.  Or on streamers.  Think rubberlegs of various colors/sizes and a mix of smaller droppers.  Baetis nymphs as well as hecubas are present so PTs, copper johns, lightning bugs and more (see the list below) will work.

Not an advisable choice today ( or possibly the next several days...) The Stone is blown out from the pounding rain that the Park has taken.  Seriously, this one may take until this weekend to sort out and flush through.

Still plugging along here on the Stone.  Seems we're caught just a bit between fits and starts of "fall".  A couple days ago it was cool, cloudy, and sputtering rain.  River has been mostly clear, though a few plugs of off colored water have come through in the upper valley.  Smaller parachutes as well as Ants and beetles have been good pretty much start to finish.  Sure would be good to see some real fall weather move in... Going down?  Under the bobber is still a good choice if you can't get 'em to eat on top.  Go to is still an olive bugger (goblin) or on Pat's Rubberlegs in brown, tan/brown, orange/brown as well as olive.  Adding a spicy little dropper has also ramped up the counts.  Both whitey as well as some good trout.

Getting a little tired of Same ol- Same ol stuff.  A few clouds and T-boomers have been adding some flavor to otherwise hot and sunny conditions.  River is holding fine, no more mudplugs so peeps are spread out for sure.  It's a little quieter now after Labor Day weekend.  Not that it was super busy on the long weekend by any stretch.  AM action on small-ish parachutes in the rusty as well as purple coloration still doing pretty good.  Mahoganies are hanging around a bit & the fish are still willing to eat a well presented parachute.  The hopper thing seems to have died just a bit.  And the midnight stones are pretty well kaput.  What's left?  Ants and beetles have been good pretty much start to finish.  Sure would be good to see some real fall weather move in... Going down?  Under the bobber is still a good choice if you can't get 'em to eat on top.  Go to is still an olive bugger (goblin) or on Pat's Rubberlegs in brown, tan/brown, orange/brown as well as olive.  Adding a spicy little dropper has also ramped up the counts.  Both whitey as well as some good trout.

A little cool-off, then heating back up.  That's the word anyways.  Been seeing good AM action on small-ish parachutes in the rusty as well as purple coloration lately.  Mahoganies are out and the fish seem to like them.  You can get some fish to eat smaller hoppers through the midday.  Ants and beetles have been good pretty much start to finish.  Going down?  Under the bobber has been consistently good on Pat's Rubberlegs in brown, tan/brown, orange/brown as well as olive.  Adding a spicy little dropper has also ramped up the counts.  Both whitey as well as some good trout.
