The Yellowstone has been fishing very well the past couple days and today.  Part of this is due to the fact the Yellowstone was basically rested for about 5-6 days last week, however in addition to that water temps are down (62-67) and the cloud cover has fishing looking up.  The bigger browns have been getting caught on hoppers lately but smaller nymph droppers as well as dry droppers have been catching some solid rainbows.  CFS has dropped to about 2,500 CFS which means lots of our favorite runs are stacked with fish and easy to get to.  Although we have some rain forecasted for today and tomorrow it looks like these storms are going to miss the North East section of the park, hence the Lamar should stay clear and allow us to fish the Yellowstone from top to bottom this week.  Forecasted temperatures are in the high 60′s and low 70′s, which should help with the mid-day bite.  Give us a call to book a last minute guide trip, this should be a great week to get out there and catch some nice fish on dries!   406-222-7130.
