Hopper Time

Fish have been looking up and eating hoppers, stones, ants, other terrestrials, and small attractor dries on the Yellowstone this week.  Water temps are staying cool and the fishing has been good right through the afternoon.   Nymphs have been working as well, try any variety of a larger (size #8/10) nymph followed by a smaller (size #14/16) nymph.  Lil’ spankers, tungsten jig PT’s, lightning bugs, prince nymphs, and guide choice hare’s ears have all been popular droppers lately.  Streamers have been working here and there but have been less consistent than dry/dropper or even a single dry.  Give us a call to book a trip!  1-406-222-7130.

There is a small plug of mud in the Valley today (8/7), from the Lamar but it is to work around it by going way up high or floating town down.

We just got in some new hoppers as well as some old favorites...
