What’s Up With the Sunny September?

The last week was kind of brutal on the Yellowstone. Cloudy and windy alternating with sunny and windy. We are taking some fish on nymphs under a strike indicator, but the dry fly bite is off. We did manage to catch two 19 inch browns on two consecutive windy days. Both were on streamers on cloudy days, but fishing is overall slow. I’m looking forward to some cool, wet days to turn the dry fly action back on. In the meantime, hoppers are working very sporadically, but the big winners lately have been large meals, like yuk bugs, girdle bugs and wooly buggers.

Nice bow on a slow day of fishing. This one ate a hopper!

Cloudy and Cool Means Good Fishing

The fish are back on the feed with the return of clouds and cooler weather. Fish are hammering a hopper/dropper combo on both the Stillwater and Yellowstone. The Stilly is getting very bony for floating, perfect for wading. The trico action on the Stone was good this morning. Lots of spinners, clouds and cool weather. Check out this 18 incher Jon took on a size 22 trico! Dry fly fishing at it’s most technical on a wild freestone river. Three other boats on 14 miles of water…
