LOWER SHOSHONE – Flows have been dropped to around 255 cfs and the water is pretty off color. Look for midge and baetis sippers or nymph/toss streamers on the banks.
BIG HORN / WIND – Flows have been dropped to around 960 cfs and the grass/moss is dying off. Baetis are out and streamer fishing has been good. Crawdads, sow bugs and worms will still work as well.
NORTH FORK – Hooked a few fish down in the state park on 10/22 but the flows are up and the water is off color. Seems to be a few browns making a run out of the reservoir to spawn but the majority of fish are back in Buffalo Bill until next spring. Toss streamers if you give it a try.
SOUTH FORK – Water looks good up in the Valley section and flows are up for this time of year, especially down by the reservoir. Baetis and midges are out. Tossing or swinging streamers is your best bet for targeting the larger trout.
CLARK’S FORK – Flows are up and the river looks great below the canyon. Baetis and midges are out. Tossing or swinging streamers is your best bet for targeting the larger trout.
GREYBULL / WOOD – Baetis and midges are out but attractors and small terrestrials will still work. Drop a size 16-18 bead head nymph below a dry when the water is cooler in the mornings.
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK – Baetis and swinging soft hackles on the Firehole. Tossing or swinging streamers on the Madison is your best bet for targeting the larger trout that are migrating out of Hebgen Reservoir.
NEWTON LAKES – Cooling off. Chironomids, scuds, and leeches as well as streamers.
LUCE/HOGAN RESERVOIRS – Cooling off. Chironomids, scuds, and leeches as well as streamers.
