Fall on the Yellowstone

Fall is always a beautiful time on the Stone, even if it feels like summer. The fishing is all about the nymph. Fall baetis have not begun and tricos are long over. The best bets are pheasant tails and prince nymphs fished deep under an indicator. Look for the streamer fishing to pick up as the weather turns cooler and cloudy.

The Stillwater has risen a bit and is floatable. Again, nymphing is the best bet. Some baetis are around, but a tan elk hair caddis works best for a dry fly.

Rock Creek and it’s tributaries are fishing well on the elk hair caddis, too. Drop a size 16 pheasant tail about 16 inches off the caddis and increase your chances!

Fall colors are in full swing on the Stone.
