LOWER SHOSHONE – Flows are around 1350 cfs. Clarity is decent in the canyon and through town but has suffered from off color inflows below Cottonwood, Idaho and Sage Creeks. Look for heads up on caddis, baetis and tricos, or fish the edges with nymphs and streamers.
BIG HORN / WIND – Flows are 1400 cfs. The moss is not nearly as bad as it was a few weeks ago and the fishing remains good. PMD’s, yellow sally’s and tricos are hatching. Nymph or throw a hopper/dropper rig with sow bugs, crawdads and worms.
NORTH FORK – The river is closed to fishing below Newton Creek until July 1st! Flows have dropped and the clarity is now a fishable color due to the cooler weather the last few days. Flows are still big but if you can find some soft seems and edges, you should find the fish. Nymphing big stoneflies like rubber legs, 20 inchers, halfbacks, mega princes, and two bit stones will be your best bet. Go heavy on your leader and tippet (0X-2X)!
SOUTH FORK – High and dirty.
CLARK’S FORK – High and dirty.
GREYBULL / WOOD – The Greybull remains high and dirty but the Wood is beginning to clear. Nymph or throw a hopper/dropper rig with smaller stoneflies and beadheads. Attractor dries may get some attention on the surface.
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK – The Firehole, Gibbon and Madison remain the best options. Be prepared to match the hatches with PMD’s and caddis. Swinging soft hackles and small streamers is always fun to pass the time when you’re hunting for heads and the dry fly activity is slow. NE Corner is dropping but still dirty.
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.
