Yellowstone River 5-6-2019

The Yellowstone near Big Timber has cleared significantly this weekend as the cooler weather and lack of low level snow has brought the muddy Shields River under control.  Look for fish eating March Brown mayflies that are hatching pretty well this week.  Look for a hatch of Blue Winged Olives […]

The Yellowstone is running high and muddy.  We expect runoff to continue until the end of June or so, making fly fishing difficult at best.  The Yellowstone recently peaked at 20,000 cfs then dropped after the recent cool weather but is once again on the rise.  Near future flows over […]

Lower Boulder:  The lower Boulder, below the Natural Bridge, is running high with early runoff.  Expect high and off color flows with some clearing in the late afternoons and after a couple of cool days.  High temperatures bring the flows way up, so try to fish after cooler days and […]
