Dry fly anglers rejoice – both the Yellowstone and the Park have been fishing well with chubbies, hoppers, ants, and other terrestrials. If you’re on the river, focus getting long, flawless drifts (your rower will play a key role here). An appropriate twitch here and there has also been working well. It looks like the Gardiner had a small mud plug, which had made it’s way down from Gardinder to 26 by 8:00 this morning. It’s greyish in tone, (not your typical brownish Lamar mud) and should be clearing quickly. We expect Carbella to be fishing by tomorrow but give us a call if you are planning on fishing up high Saturday just in case. 406-222-7130.
The dry fly fishing inside the Park has been exceptional lately. A short hike will help tremendously but there are also some good fishing spots close to the roads. The guides and outfitters we work with know the NE section of the park very well and can help you find the perfect fishing spot wether you want to fish close to the car or go on a 2-8 mile round trip “hike and strike.” This is a great way to see the park, see some animals, and catch plenty of native cutthroat trout as a bonus. Give us a call to book your next Yellowstone river or Yellowstone Nation Park fishing trip!
