LOWER SHOSHONE – Flows are around 1050 cfs and the river is off color but fishable. Fish the edges with a hopper/dropper or streamers.
BIG HORN / WIND – Flows are around 1150 cfs. The moss is annoying but the fishing remains good. Look for heads up on tricos, nymph or throw a hopper with a perdigon, sow bug, crawdad or worm dropper. Streamers are also picking up a few fish.
NORTH FORK – Clarity has been affected most of the summer due to rains and landslides. There’s better clarity up in the forest above Sweetwater Creek. Hoppers, terrestrials, attractors and smaller beadheads and stoneflies are working.
SOUTH FORK – Rains will affect water clarity, but the river has been clearing quickly after the storms. The dry fly fishing has been decent on caddis, hoppers and smaller terrestrials. Beadhead droppers will pick up fish when the trout aren’t rising. Streamer fishing has been good as well.
CLARK’S FORK – The river has been blowing out below Crandall Creek when it rains but the fishing has been good when it’s clear. Hopper, terrestrial and attractor dry fly fishing has been good.
GREYBULL / WOOD – Rains will affect water clarity but both are fishing well with caddis, small hoppers, ants, beetles and attractors when the water is clear.
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK – Hoot Owl restrictions have been lifted and fishing is once again allowed from sunrise to sunset. The trout in the Lamar River, Soda Butte and Slough Creeks are looking up for hoppers, ants, and beetles when the sun is out. Baetis and PMD’s are out on cloudy days. Sight fish terrestrials and rusty spinners on the Yellowstone River.
NEWTON LAKES – East Newton is still very full. Midges, damsels, scuds, leeches and terrestrials.
LUCE / HOGAN RESERVOIRS – Midges, damsels, scuds, leeches and terrestrials.
