Yellowstone still windy

A couple nice Thanksgiving Browns

The Yellowstone is still cold and windy but at least there are some clouds in the forecast for this weekend.   With a steady 40 mph wind and gusts up to 60 you can forget about floating.   Your best option is to start early and wade fish with a two handed rod.  Stripping streamers on a sinking line is one way to fish.  Go with smaller more subtle streamers like olive or black. With colder water temperatures it seems like dead drifting or nymphing is a better way to go.  Rubber legs and eggs will do the trick.  If by some miracle the “w” does calm down you might have a shot at throwing some midge dries or emergers.  Except for the creeks, baetis are pretty much done for the winter over here…
