Fourth of July Fishing Report

The Spring Creeks continue to be the main attraction in the area with consistent PMD emergences bringing trout to the surface daily.  Sawyer p tails, no hackles, floating nymphs and spinners will cover the hatch well.

It looks like the Yellowstone River finally peaked last Thursday/Friday just under 40,000 cfs in Livingston.  Hopefully the hot weather that continues will flush the system sooner than later.  Look for the river to be “normal” whatever that means the first week of August.

Look for the smaller freestone creeks and rivers in and around Paradise Valley to hopefully clear within two weeks.

The taiwater rivers such as the Beaverhead, Missouri and Bighorn River continue to produce fish consistently despite the high water.

As far as Yellowstone National Park goes the Firehole and Gibbon rivers have been providing the best fishing.  Hopefully other creeks such as Soda Butte Creek will begin fishing within a few weeks as well.
