LOWER SHOSHONE – Flows have been dropped back down to 1030 cfs. Baetis and midges are hatching. Nymph the edges with zebra midges, baetis nymphs, sow bugs, worms, leeches and caddis pupa. Tossing streamers like thin mints, jawbreakers and sparkle minnows will work as well.
BIG HORN / WIND – Flows are around 600 cfs. Lots of boats but fishing remains good. Hatches are baetis and midges. Nymph with midges, baetis nymphs, sow bugs and worms. Streamers have been producing some big trout as well.
NORTH FORK – The river is now closed to fishing below Newton Creek until July 1st. Not many fish above the closure as of yesterday but the numbers should increase daily. Go heavy with your tippet, 0X-2X, and nymph stoneflies like skwalas, rubber legs, 20 inchers, yuk bugs and halfbacks. March Browns, Bloody Mary’s, Copper John’s, bigger pheasant tail, prince nymphs, soft hackles as well as worms and eggs will work. If you’re more into stripping or swinging streamers, those can both be a great way to hook into some of the bigger migratory trout.
SOUTH FORK – Nymphing with Skwala and stonefly nymphs like rubber legs and 20 inchers as well as smaller beadheads like March Browns, possie buggers, hare’s ears, perdigons, baetis nymphs and midges have been the most productive but streamers have been working as well.
CLARK’S FORK – Few fish up on midges and baetis in the afternoons but nymphing stonefly and beadhead attractor nymphs deep will be your best bet. Always worth pulling a few streamers through some of the deeper holes as well.
GREYBULL / WOOD – Might have a few fish up on baetis and midges during the heat of the day but nymphing stoneflies and beadhead attractor nymphs will be your best bet.
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK – Closed to fishing until Memorial Day Weekend 2021! Yellowstone licenses are now available online at Recreation.gov…although prices have gone up quite a bit!
NEWTON LAKES – Both lakes are open. East Newton is still very full. Scuds, midges and leeches.
LUCE / HOGAN RESERVOIRS – Both lakes are open. Scuds, midges, and leeches.
