Firehole and the likes

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!

Gary's first fish


Lately I’ve been fishing some great folks up in Yellowstone National Park. The weather has been spectacular and the fish have been treating us right. The Firehole is always a favorite place this time of year; feisty browns and rainbows, geyser activity and wandering bison make for a great day. The water’s running a little high, but is clear and in great shape.

Leland and his wife found some fish the other day. All fish were caught on nymphs and wet flies, but i suspect the PMDs and Miller Caddis will start hatching any day now.

Fishing in Yellowstone among the Bison

Leland hooked up on an unnamed stream in Yellowstone Park. Bison approved!
