Still time for a big one…

Although Chris’ big brown (shown above) was caught a couple weeks ago, the Yellowstone continues to deliver some really nice fish.  Last Friday the fishing was completely off the hook, Saturday and Sunday were on the slower side.   Snow pack levels are currently 116%, which means we’ll have a good amount of water to last through August and September.  (We’ve also been seeing quite a few hoppers in the tall grass lately and it looks like this year will be a better hopper year than last year).  CFS at Carter’s Bridge has dropped to 7,600 which means it’s go time.  Today we have 50-70% chance of rain with 20% chance of rain the rest of the week.  We were in YNP yesterday and the coast is clear for now, however if it rains in the park tonight or tomorrow we may have to work around a plug or two.  The forecast is calling for 40% chance of rain in the Lamar Valley today and tonight, and 20% chance Wednesday night.  No rain in the forecast for Thursday on.  As for the Spring Creeks, we are starting to see sulphur’s in the afternoons and the fish are starting to key in on them.  It’s still midges and midge larva in the mornings and PMD’s from 10:00 on.  There has been some great spinner falls out there the past few days, today with all those clouds should be epic.  On brighter days guides have been fishing ants, crickets, and beetles successfully.
