The Yellowstone really gave up it’s treasures this week! A 24 inch brown and a 20 inch rainbow came out to play, both on the same day. We caught the brown nymphing, the rainbow on the streamer AND had a great baetis hatch in the afternoon. Cline and Lewis tagged lots of trout on size 18 dries to close out a fantastic day of fishing.

The Yellowstone, Stillwater, Rock Creek and other area streams are responding well to the cooler weather. We started seeing some of the fall hatches on the Yellowstone last week during the snow and rain. Baetis are already hatching on those cool, cloudy days. The big yellow duns are also starting to make their presence known. On the warm and sunny days, nymphing is the key. The standard girdle bug/prince nymph combo is producing. Don’t forget about a nice dry dropper combo as well. A yellow Madam X with a prince dropper is working well on Rock Creek. As the weather continues to cool down, expect the fishing to heat up!
