Mayflies on the Yellowstone

Way to go, Bob!

The hopper fishing is transitioning to fall mayfly and streamer fishing on the Yellowstone and most area streams. We are getting PMDs, sulfurs, grey drakes, and various other mayflies coming off sporadically. Tricos are still there, but fish are now taking a size 16 parachute with regularity. Makes it a lot easier than trying to use a #24 spinner. The dropper nymph is producing very well and the hopper will still get a few strikes on hot days. Bob’s big rainbow ate a #16 red copper john.
