Two Weeks Till Yellowstone Park Fishing Season Opener

I just wanted to remind everyone that the Yellowstone Park Fishing Season opens in two weeks from today. We never know what to expect as far as weather or water conditions go, but I can say that the Firehole and Madison are almost always fishable. The only time they aren’t fishable is when it rains a bunch on top of the snow melt. If the weather is nice, don’t expect to be by yourself. If it’s crappy, you might not see another angler until lunch time or so. If the weather has been good expect good hatches and dry fly fishing with BWO’s, PMD’s and/or Caddis. If it’s nasty out and the water is off color, you might need a sinking line and some Wooly Buggers and Muddler Minnows. One thing I can tell you is there is always a little magic to be had and it’s an incredible feeling driving through the Park at 6am as the suns coming up. Here is a picture from last years opener.
