Yellowstone River Fishing Report 09/30/14
Again after some rain the river was muddy. We are seeing better clarity above six mile now. At Emigrant there is about two feet of visability. The dry fly fishing has been pretty good. Small attractor dries have been the best bet. Streamers will also work with the overcast days. Nymphing with a caddis pupa/larva with a baetis nymph dropper is also a good option. The terrestrial bite has really tapered off but throwing the chubby/dropper rig can still be productive.

Yellowstone National Park Fishing 09/30/14
No better time to be in the park. Again the clouds and cooler temps have made fish active. Look for the runners in the southwest corner. Using a streamer with a soft hackle can be effective. Baetis and Caddis will also produce fish in these waters. In the North East the water is clearing after more rain and the fishing can be good later in the afternoon. Hoppers are still on the menu along with drakes, caddis, and midges. The road from Norris to Madison reopened today so getting around will be a little easier.

Lower Madison Flyfishing Report 09/30/14
Fishing is improving on the Lower. The cloudy skies and cooler weather have made the fish more active. Stripping streamers, dead drifting a crayfish or a streamer with a soft hackle dropper will be your best bet unless you get a baetis hatch. Then use emerger patterns to get rising fish to eat.

Fishing is becoming more consistant with the cooler weather and cloudy days. Fish have been taken on dries, nymphs under and indicator and streamers swung, stripped, or dead drifted. Caddis larva, midges for your nymphs. Dries include baetis and small attractors. If your throwing streamers go with a zonker, Dungeon, or Shelia's.

Paradise Valley Spring Creek Flyfishing Report 9/30/14
The Spring Creeks in the valley have been fishing very well the last few days. We have had cloudy cooler weather which convinced the baetis to hatch and fish are eating them.  Midge and baetis larve and pupa will still get trout to eat subsurface and in the film. The terrestrials are waning but you may get the occasional fish to eat the small ant or beetle.

Yellowstone River Fishing Report 09/25/14
We are seeing good clarity in the river above 6 mile creek and about a mile downstream of it. Fishing has been hot and cold. Reports are coming in of good fishing on the chubby/rubberlegs set up. Others couldn't buy a bite. The wind has also been a factor for angler's trying to cast. The bright sun and warm weather will make for terrestrial fishing. Ants and beetles more than hoppers. You will definatly have your fair share of whitefish this time of year as well. This weekend could be great with clouds, cooler temps, and possibly rain. Look for baeits with the cloud cover. Throw the streamer early and late as well.
