Three Days of Glory on the Stillwater

The rain and cold weather has turned the Stillwater on! The streamer bite is excellent, nymphing is unbelievable and there is a nice baetis hatch in the afternoon. The fish think it’s fall, and who am I to argue? Check out a couple of fish Ron and I caught yesterday.

Nice 18 inch brown.

The Yellowstone is Fishing Great!

This last week has been excellent on the Yellowstone. Even in the pouring rain yesterday, we killed it! We have had trico spinners, several kinds of yellow mayfly and a good hopper bite. Nymphing was spotty until yesterday. A beadhead prince took fish all day, producing three doubles. The streamer bite has been slow up until yesterday morning. We had good action on an olive wooly bugger.

Rock Creek Caddis

Nice caddis hatch on Rock Creek this morning. Fish were rising like crazy in the first pool we tried. The newlyweds I was fishing with had never seen a hatch before, (one had never fly fished). Both did a fine job with a size 16 dry fly. Pretty cool for your first experience fly fishing! Pretty cool, no matter how long you’ve fly fished.

The Stillwater has been fishing well on small dry flies in the mornings and hopper/dropper rigs all afternoon.

The Yellowstone is dirty right now, but has been fishing well on the hopper/dropper.

Fishing Just Getting Better and Better!

The Stillwater continues to fish well, with trout regularly eating hopper patterns now. The dropper nymph is still working all day long, as well.

The Yellowstone has been fishing great on deep nymphs, with fish beginning to look for the hopper.

Rock Creek and it’s tributaries continue to fish well on deep nymphs with good action on small dry flies such as a PMD parachute or elk hair caddis.

Ann comes through on the Stillwater, as usual.
