Fishing Conditions

December 29, 2022

The Yellowstone is running pretty low, not unusual for this time of year.Look for fishing rising to baetis in the back eddies. Small Streamers have been our best luck lately and keeping the Whiteys off as well. So instead of fishing a rubber legs or worm up top, you can put a mccune's sculpin or belly ache minnow as your lead fly and behind it put another small streamer like a wooly bugger or kreelex behind it.
