Salmonflies in the Yellowstone Park

Extreme Fly Fishing - Howard and Christina Blaustein hike out after an epic day of dry fly fishing!

We had a great day fishing inside Yellowstone Park fishing with salmonflies and goldenstone patterns.  We saw about 2 dozen naturals, many of which were towards the end of their life cycle.  The native cutthroat were definitely looking up for dries, (although we caught most of our fish on smaller size 8 rubberleg nymphs).  We earned all those salmonfly eats (and a Chico desert) during the hike out – it was take 1 step up, slide 2 steps back!
