Has she peaked?

The Yellowstone below HWY 89 Bridge

Don't plan on using 89 as a put in for a while...

It looks like the Yellowstone may stay at (or hopefully) just below flood stage for the next couple days.  Will it eventually come back up even higher or has she peaked?   The forecast this week isn’t nearly as hot as last week however it looks like we have 50-60% chance of rain coming.  Snow pack has dropped slightly to 139% snow-water equivalent.  It is always interesting to see what changes a large run-off year will bring… new side channels, different main channels, ect.  So far the river is too high to predict any major changes.  It is also difficult to predict when we will be back fishing the river, (third week of July)?  Regardless of if we are on the Stone or not, there are plenty of great options to fish in early to mid-July…

Forecasted CFS flows for the next few days...
