Fishing Conditions

May 13, 2022

The Yellowstone has been fishing nicely, the river is low but is still floatable from top to bottom.  Caddis have shown up, so keep your eyes open.  Leave those baetis in your box for the right conditions. Dark colored streamers, pats rubberlegs, and midges have been the trick. Shuttles are up and running for those looking to float.
