The Yellowstone continues to fish quite well.  Flows have dropped to around 6,000 CFS and the water temperatures have been near perfect.  2014 is turning into one heck of a year so far!  Pick any section right now, you really can’t go wrong (although some of the best spots down low are still too high to fish effectively right now).  For dry flies we been having luck with Chubbies, Hoppers, trudes, high vis elk hair caddis, Bloom’s caddis, turk’s tarantula, flying ants, and other attractors.  For nymphs it’s been mostly rubber legs, green crystal buggers, and a variety of beadheads, size 10-16 depending on what type of water you are fishing.  For streamers try a black lead-eye, bow river bugger, home invader, circus peanut, or a sex dungeon.  Only a 20% chance thunderstorms building in the afternoons for this week, which means we should be mud plug free for a while…
