Guided Fishing Report
It’s been an interesting week on the rivers and streams of Southwest Montana. I’ve been guiding some of my favorite clients and we even got to see a black bear hanging out on the banks of the Yellowstone. The Yellowstone has been productive with dry flies working great one day, but barely a fish looking for them the next day. At least the nymph fishing was productive with good numbers of fish eating lighting bugs down deep. The Upper Madison managed to tick me off yesterday, as there were a plethora of insects and not a single fish rising. Salmonflies, Goldenstones, Yellow Sallies, Pale Morning Duns and what seemed like a billion caddis were out in force. We were only able to dredge up a few fish on large black stonefly nymphs and some random bead-heads. I guess the fish must be full or something. I guided a Tenkara trip today which turned out to be a blast. The tradition Japanese techniques were kicking ass! Get it now before the rivers heat up. Give the shop a call if you’re thinking about a guided trip as July is booking up fast.
