Around here fishing is getting better and better with each passing week. In addition to some time with clients over at the fishing cabin, I’ve spent the better part of the past week guiding in Yellowstone National Park. YNP is one of my favorite places to guide and fish. The variety of waters there is astounding; famous rivers like the Firehole and Madison draw the most attention, but my favorites are lesser-known and off the beaten path.
The hot temps over the past week or two really got the snowpack melting and I think our rivers have peaked and are on their way to clearing. Drift boat fishing on the Green is about to get good, as is the fishing in Jellystone (some of which is already on!) Waters I’ve fished lately have had some great hatches of stoneflies (all different sizes), caddis, PMDs, Green drakes and even a few BWOs on cloudy, cool days. Here’s a few pics from the past week….
Keith caught this fine Yellowstone Cutthroat trout the other day; the nicest of many nice ones!
Andrew, a longtime client (and now friend), hooked up with a backcountry brown trout in Yellowstone
Beautiful colors on this Yellowstone Cutt. He ate a dry.
