Yellowstone River 6-6-2017

Runoff is in full swing with over 30,000 cubic feet per second rolling passed Big Timber.  Fishing opportunities are limited at best, yet the intrepid nymph angler can find fish on the few and far between corners that are soft enough to fish and even more importantly, soft enough to wade into.  If one ventures out to fish, big stonefly nymphs (Pat’s Rubberlegs) and aquatic annelids (San Juan Worms) should be the flies of choice.  Use caution wading and look for two or more feet of water clarity (generally following cooler days).  Runoff will be over soon, come into the flyshop and get ready for the upcoming season!
