Yellowstone Still Unfloatable

9th street island (3/16 7:42 AM)

With Spring Fever brewing at an all time high people have been jonesin’ to hit the Stone.  Wade fishing is still the way to go over hear.  Many of the boat ramps are still full of snow, even parking is difficult without getting stuck much less towing a raft and trailer.  Don’t even think about floating unless you are up for a Shackleton expedition, pushing your raft over snow and ice at both the put in and take out as well as a possible snow and ice portage in the middle of your float.  Not worth it, especially with the low water temps.   Give it another few weeks, better to be safe than sorry.  In the meantime wade fish the Yellowstone where warmer water flows into it for your best chance of catching a fish.  Or even better, take advantage of the Paradise Valley Spring Creeks winter rates, ($40 per rod) and enjoy a day on one of Montana’s most scenic meadow streams.  Give us a call if you’d like to book a trip or for the latest report! 1-406-222-7130.
