I continue to spend time up in Jellystone as of late. The Firehole is clear and fishing pretty well, making it well worth the drive. Guest have enjoyed the park and the feisty brown and rainbow trout that inhabit it's waters. Yesterday hatches of PMDs, BWOs and Miller caddis were all coming off in the morning. When surface activity slowed, soft hackles and nymphs brought a few fish to the net.
Snow continues to melt around here and I'm pretty certain area waters have peaked and it shouldn't be long before great dry fly fishing sets in. I expect to start floating the Green this week in addition to Yellowstone waters.
Mike braved the cold and wind and experienced the magic of the Firehole River. Here he is hooked up with a nice rainbow...
He seems excited!
Gary shows off his first ever fish on a fly rod. Not bad for a guy use to ocean fishing!
