LOWER SHOSHONE – Flows are 1250 cfs. Clarity is good in town and only gets marginally worse down river towards Corbett. Look for heads up on Mother’s Day caddis, baetis and tricos, or fish the edges with nymphs and streamers.

BIG HORN / WIND – Flows are 1100 cfs. The moss is terrible but the fishing remains good when you can get a clean drift. Baetis are hatching with a few midges and caddis as well. Nymph with baetis nymphs, sow bugs and worms. Streamers have been producing some big trout as well.

NORTH FORK – Clarity above the closure Newton Creek closure has remained fishable and fishing has been quite good. Go heavy with your tippet (0X-2X). 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 – Clarity has been hit and miss up by Valley the last few weeks. Nymph with stonefly nymphs like rubber legs and 20 inchers as well as smaller beadheads like 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 – Flows and clarity have been up and down lately. Mother’s Day caddis are still out 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 – Greybull is off color in Meeteetse but could be fishable up in the forest. South Fork of the Wood has been putting in some color but the main stem has remained clear. Toss attractor dries or nymph with stoneflies and beadheads.

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK – Conditions on the Firehole, Gibbon and Madison should be fantastic for fishing with flows right at, or slightly below normal. Be prepared to match the hatches with PMD’s, baetis 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. Yellowstone licenses are now available online at Recreation.gov.

NEWTON LAKES – East Newton is still very full. Midges, callibaetis, boatmen, scuds and leeches.

LUCE / HOGAN RESERVOIRS – Midges, callibaetis, boatmen, scuds, leeches, ants, beetles and Parachute Adams.
