Yellowstone National Park Rivers - April 3rd, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • Partly cloudy
  • 48 ° F 
  • Fishing: Poor
The Park is currently closing to fishing.  It re-opens the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend.  Although closed to angling, the sight seeing can be fantastic this time of year.  Bears are starting to come out of hibernation and can be seen in good numbers in the spring.  That, along with all of the other wildlife in the park can make for a great day.  You can end the day with a soak in the Boiling River on your way out of the Park.  Better than being inside...

If we could only get in the Park....... Gov't shutdown continues to frustrate anglers looking to fish the Park waters.  I'm sure it'd be good in there.  Rangers are not to be messed with!  If they catch you entering Park waters from walking up places like the Yellowstone river outside the Park or the Madison from Baker's Hole and entering Park territory, expect a hefty $500 fine and tresspassing violation.  BUNK JUNK!!!!

Good luck in entering the Park today!  Gov't shutdown!  "Sorry folks, Park's closed!"  Where's Clark Griswold when you need him????  Let's hope that D.C. can get their S*** together and end this silliness!
 
Yellowstone National Park Rivers - September 28th, 2013
  • Recorded:
  • Scattered showers
  • 58 ° F 
  • Fishing: Good
What to do on the last weekend in September and you want to fish the Park?  Fishing has been good, but for the next couple days it's going to be blustery out there.  Even up high in the Park, wind is going to be your biggest detractor.  Scattered showers, possibly even some snow squalls.  Better dress the part!  Park waters are running clean.  The Lamar & Soda Butte are in good shape.  Slough too.  Yellowstone in the Park also checks out as good.  Don't expect much in the way of AM action.  It's really turned to an afternoon gig on these parts.  Attractor dries with smaller beadhead droppers are the norm.  Getting deeper may not be a bad call at all.  Over in the NW quadrant, the Firehole report has been solid fishing on dries, especially in the afternoon. BWO's as well as very light tan caddis.  Madison is seeing pretty decent fishing as well and a fair bit of pressure.  There's a few browns "staging" but the main run isn't for a couple weeks yet.

All clear is the word we have now for Park waters.  Soda Butte is clean.  Slough didnt color up.  The Lamar is not perfect, but it's trying and will be not far behind.  The Gardner is good.  And as we mentioned last, the NW quadrant is coming back on.  The Firehole report was that its weedy, but good fishing on dries.  Madison is seeing pretty decent fishing as well and a fair bit of pressure.  Folks thinking that the fall brown trout run is on may be a touch disappointed as there's a few browns "staging" but the main run isn't for a couple weeks yet.  Fishing remains consistently good on a gamut of terrestrial patterns.  You should really have a good assortment of hoppers, crickets, ants, and beetles to throw.  Some of these Park cutty's are getting pretty darn wiley!  One good drift and they come to inspect, don't throw again-- change it up!  Sometimes that's the only way to get 'em to eat.  With the clouds, we are starting to see a bit more in the way of bugs.  Granted, it's not a lingering hatch by any means but a few baetis, a few grey drakes, some psuedos.... makes for throwing an array of parachute mayfly patterns acceptable and fish will respond.
