Yellowstone Area Fishing Report, July 13, 2015

The rain and cooler temperatures last week really had a positive effect on the Yellowstone river. Yes we did have a week trying to find fish-able water in-between sections of mud but things are looking even better for the future. Water temps near Livingston are hovering around 63 degrees today which means the upper river is a little cooler. We are starting to see better clarity and even green water above Yankee Jim Canyon. Yellow Sallies, Caddis, and Pale Evening Duns are still around and fish will be eating them. The Chubby Chernobyl with a Rubberleg dropper has also been …

Yellowstone Area Fishing Report, July, 6 2015

Hope everyone had a happy and safe 4th of July! Why not kick off the month with a good old 65 mile mud plug? Well unfortunately that is what we are seeing today as we look out on to the river. The rain yesterday bumped flows on the Gardner and the Yellowstone is unfishable from Gardner to Livingston. Many angler’s were heading east of town to get ahead of it. Before that plug, the river was fishing very well but you had to be on the water early to beat the heat. Caddis and Yellow Sallies are still around in …

The Yellowstone is still fishing very well as we are seeing a lot of bugs out on the river. To name a few, Salmon Flies (In and above Yankee Jim Canyon), Yellow Sallies, Golden Stones, Caddis, PMD’s, and Green Drakes. The Yellow Sallies, Golden’s and Caddis, span the entire valley and imitations of these bugs will get fish to rise and eat on top. The PMD’s and Green Drakes are around but you will find dense concentrations of them if you are lucky enough to get some cloud cover. Keep the dry’s in the box just in case. Fishing nymph …

The Yellowstone has been dropping into shape the last few days. The Water is green and it looks very good. We had a little mud plug yesterday due to some rain in the park but it is clear of the valley now. The big Salmon flies have been spotted by the 26 mile boat launch.

Yellowstone Area Fishing Report June 6, 2015

Runoff time for the Yellowstone! We are in it now. High muddy water looks to be the river conditions for the next couple of weeks. We will keep you posted once things start to look fishy again! Fishing on the Spring Creeks has slowed a little this last week due to bright sun and hot temps. Early mornings have been best with midge adult, larva, and scud patterns. A few baetis here and there but if you don’t have clouds things can be tricky. We have heard murmurings of afternoon PMD hatches so watch for them as you enjoy the …
