Yellowstone and YNP fishing well

The Yellowstone continues to give up the goods!  CFS has now dropped to around 6,500 in town and 5900 at Corwin Springs.  We are seeing more hoppers around, although only a few have actually hit the water.  Stonefly action is still solid, as well as small dry flies like purple haze, trudes, caddis, and other attractor dries.  Nymphing has still been the best way to put numbers in the boat.  Fishing a streamer on a sinking line or under a bobber remains the best tactic for a bigger fish.

If you are looking to fish dry flies, Yellowstone National Park has been fishing excellent.  Believe it or not there are still Salmonflies and goldenstones to be had if you know where to look.  Slough creek, the Lamar, and Soda Butte have all been fishing well with hoppers, crickets, green and grey drakes, chubbies, and ants.  Give us a call if you’d like to book a trip, depending on how far you are willing to walk we have plenty of great “hike and strike” options. Our guides know some beautiful fishing spots and are ready to share them with you.  1-406-222-7130.
