LOWER SHOSHONE – Flows are 870 cfs and fishing has been good! Caddis, blue winged olives, hoppers and ants have had the trout looking up. Copper Johns, pheasant tails, rubber leg stones, prince nymphs and caddis pupa below the surface. Stripping leeches and streamers has been successful too.
BIG HORN / WIND – Flows are 600 cfs and G&F is shocking from Wedding of the Waters to town this week. Tricos, hoppers, baetis, worms, leeches, scuds, sowbugs, crawdads, crane flies and streamers.
NORTH FORK – Fishing for the bigger migratory trout has been hit and miss up in the forest as most have returned to the reservoir. The deeper runs are still holding some of the larger trout however. Grey drakes, mahogany duns, pale evening duns and tricos on top. Drop smaller stones and general beadheads like prince nymphs, pheasant tails and hare’s ears.
SOUTH FORK – The Valley and Forest sections have been fishing well. Mahogany duns, pale evening duns and blue winged olives on top. Drop smaller stones and general beadheads like prince nymphs, pheasant tails and hare’s ears. Stripping streamers like JJ specials, thin mints and jawbreakers will work as well.
CLARK’S FORK – Pale evening duns, midges and blue winged olives are the hatches. Still a lot of hoppers around as well. Drop smaller stones and general beadheads like prince nymphs, pheasant tails and hare’s ears. Don’t forget your streamers!
GREYBULL / WOOD – Pale evening duns, mahaogany duns, blue winged olives as well as attractors will work on the surface. Smaller beadhead nymphs in sizes 14-18 are taking fish below the surface.
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK – Swing soft hackles on the Firehole and toss streamers on the Madison. Starting to see a few runners out of Hebgen but not in big numbers yet. The NE corner (Slough, Soda Butte and Lamar) is starting to slow down a bit with the cooler water temps.
NEWTON LAKES – Both lakes are incredibly full but there is a usable parking lot now. Terrestrials, midges, scuds, pheasant tails, hare’s ears and leeches.
LUCE / HOGAN RESERVOIRS – Look for cruisers in the shallows at Luce. Terrestrials will work on the surface. Drop or strip scuds, midges and leeches.
