Water temp rising…

With temps in the 60's this week expect clarity changes daily

The Yellowstone has been fishing pretty decent lately.  We’ve had a few guide trips out and all have been successful outings.  Not too many fish over 20″ have been landed but quite a few 17-18″ browns are getting caught, mostly on nymphs.  If you’re looking to put more fish in the boat try a rubber leg followed by a caddis nymph, prince nymph, copper john, baetis nymph or any of your other favorite size #16 beadheads.  Look for fish rising in the foam and be sure to have a dry fly rod rigged and ready.  The majority of these fish have been eating midges but if you have clouds you might bring along some parachute adams for baetis or some March Browns.  Water temps are increasing (now between 42-48°F).  When the water temps hit 52-53°F the fish should start chasing streamers better.  For now get deep, strip slow, and try to tap your flies along the bottom…
