The Yellowstone is now down to around 2,000 CFS with cool water temperatures, making this September one of the best we’ve ever seen.  With almost no moss out there you can strip some streamers in the morning and wait for the fish to start looking up around 10:00AM.  Small hoppers and dries have been key, you’d think the fish would want a t-bone steak every time but they have been hitting smaller, dry droppers like parachute adams, purple haze, flying ants, and other size 16 attractor dries with a vengeance.  Staying on top also tends to keep the whitefish off the hook this time of year…
