LOWER SHOSHONE – Flows are around 1250 cfs. Clarity is a touch off but fishable all the way down to Corbett Bridge and fishing has been good! Look for heads up on yellow sally’s and caddis. There’s a few fish up on hoppers and a yellow sally, perdigon or jig soft hackle dropper underneath has been working well on the edges. Streamers have also been very productive.
BIG HORN / WIND – Flows are around 1250 cfs. The moss is manageable and the fishing remains good. PMD’s, yellow sally’s and tricos are hatching. Nymph or throw a hopper/dropper rig with perdigons, sow bugs, crawdads and worms.
NORTH FORK – The entire length of the river is now open to fishing! Flows are low for this time of year and the clarity is great all the way down to the reservoir. Some tributaries up high are still holding good numbers of trout, but the main stem will hold more fish in the lower reaches. Drakes, caddis, PMD’s and golden stones are out. Fish a stonefly nymph, jig soft hackle or perdigon below a hopper or under a bobber. Streamers will also work well.
SOUTH FORK – Flows are still pretty big up by Valley but the clarity is good all the way down to the reservoir. Drakes, caddis, PMD’s and yellow sally’s are out. Fish a stonefly nymph, jig soft hackle or perdigon below a hopper or under a bobber. Streamers will also work well.
CLARK’S FORK – The upper river is clear above Sunlight and Crandall Creeks. Below the canyon the river is dropping and is still a touch green but very fishable. A few golden stones are still popping as well as caddis, PMD’s, baetis, and yellow sally’s. Salmonflies are done but the fish are still looking up for them. Dropping a rubber legs below a chubby has been picking up fish. Streamer fishing has been good as well.
GREYBULL / WOOD – The Greybull is clear and the Wood is fishing well. Throw a PMD, caddis, yellow sally or an attractor dry like a stimulator, humpy, Adams, Royal Trude or Royal Wulff. A hopper/dropper rig with smaller stoneflies and beadheads will pick up fish as well.
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK – Flows in the NE corner on Slough Creek, Soda Butte Creek and the Lamar River are dropping and the fishing has been good. Golden stones, salmonflies, drakes, caddis and PMD’s are hatching. Yellowstone Lake has been fishing well with callibaetis and caddis.
NEWTON LAKES – East Newton is still very full. Midges, damsels, callibaetis, boatmen, scuds and leeches.
LUCE / HOGAN RESERVOIRS – Midges, damsels, callibaetis, boatmen, scuds, leeches, ants, beetles and attractors.
