LOWER SHOSHONE – Flows have been bumped up to 1300 cfs and the water clarity is off color but fishable. Mother’s Day caddis, Skwalas, golden stones, baetis and midges are the hatches and have some trout looking up. Nymph the edges with zebra midges, baetis nymphs, sow bugs, worms, leeches, caddis pupa, and stonefly patterns. Tossing streamers like thin mints, jawbreakers and sparkle minnows will work as well.
BIG HORN / WIND – Flows were bumped up to 925 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 – Blown out. The river is now closed to fishing below Newton Creek until July 1st. Go heavy with your tippet (0X-2X). Skwalas and March Browns are hatching but nymphing will produce the most fish. Stoneflies like rubber legs, 20 inchers, and halfbacks as well as Bloody Marys, pheasant tails and jig soft hackles have been productive. 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. As always, carry your bear spray!
SOUTH FORK – Blown out. Skwalas and March Browns are hatching. Nymph with 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, but streamers have been working as well. Bring you bear spray, especially in the Valley section!
CLARK’S FORK – Blown out. Mother’s Day caddis are out in huge numbers but nymphing stonefly and beadhead attractor nymphs deep will work as well. Always worth pulling a few streamers through some of the deeper holes as well. Remember your bear spray, even down on the valley floor!
GREYBULL / WOOD – Blown out. Toss some attractor dries or nymph with stoneflies and beadheads.
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.
