The Yellowstone Has Cleared

The Yellowstone has finally cleared up again. Fishing is good on the dry-dropper set up. A big stonefly imitation on top with a beadhead underneath got fairly ripped up on Thursday. The Stillwater is dropping fast. Wade fishing is getting better, with more riffles and other fishy features becoming evident. I’m still using the stonefly/beadhead combo. The big dry is getting eaten in the morning. Sunny afternoons are fishing best on the beadhead dropper. Look for the fish to get back on the dry in late afternoon, especially when the storms start to roll in.

Best flies are the yellow stimulator, tan otter hopper, and brown yellowstoner for the dry. Pheasant tails and prince nymphs are good bets for the dropper.

Nice Yellowstone rainbow on the otter hopper.

This brown ate the yellowstoner on the Stillwater! Is that legal?
