LOWER SHOSHONE – Flows are around 1000 cfs and the river is becoming more off color as the mud line in the reservoir makes its way towards the dam. Sulphur and Sage Creeks have also been dumping in some color. Fish the edges with a hopper/dropper or streamers.
BIG HORN / WIND – Flows are around 1125 cfs. The moss is annoyong but the fishing remains good. Caddis and tricos are out. Nymph or throw a hopper with a perdigon, sow bug, crawdad or worm dropper. Streamers are also picking up a few fish.
NORTH FORK – The river is mud for its entire length. Some of the tributaries such as Middle Fork, Fish Hawk and Elks Fork are fishable though. Hoppers, terrestrials, attractors and smaller beadheads and stoneflies are working.
SOUTH FORK – Clarity has been affected by the recent rains but it has been clearing quickly between rain storms. The dry fly fishing has been good on caddis, yellow sally’s and hoppers. Beadhead droppers will pick up fish when the trout aren’t rising. Streamer fishing has been decent as well.
CLARK’S FORK – The river is dirty below Crandall Creek but is fishable and clearing above the confluence. Hopper, terrestrial and attractor dry fly fishing has been good.
GREYBULL / WOOD – Clarity has been affected by the recent rains but both rivers have been clearing quickly between rain storms. Caddis, yellow sally’s, small hoppers, ants, beetles and attractors are working well.
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK – Hoot Owl restrictions are in effect for all moving streams in the entire Park. Fishing is only allowed between sunrise and 2:00 pm. Clarity on the NE Corner streams such as the Lamar River, Soda Butte and Slough Creeks has been affected by the recent rains but have been clearing quickly between the storms. Hoppers, ants, beetles, crickets, baetis and PMD’s.
NEWTON LAKES – East Newton is still very full. Midges, damsels, scuds, leeches and terrestrials.
LUCE / HOGAN RESERVOIRS – Midges, damsels, scuds, leeches and terrestrials.
