Yellowstone River 5-19-2018

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 this 20,000 cfs mark will cause the deposited trees and flotsam on the banks to float again, becoming real hazards in the high runoff flows.  Use caution if you do float.  After cool days, when the tributaries clear, fish the clear water flowing into the Yellowstone for a little action with Stone fly nymphs and San Juan worms.
