If you are heading this way, stick to the Lakes and the East side due to warm water temperatures on the Firehole, Gibbon and Madison. The East side is fishing tricky but well in the mornings with the right cast and fly selection. Caddis, Nocturnal Stones, Green Drakes, Yellow Sallies, PMD's and Terrestrials will be your best options out this way.
*** All Yellowstone National Park waters are hoot owled until further notice. In YNP that means no fishing from 2pm until sun up the following day ***
