Latest Fishing Reports: Yellowstone River

Streamers are the name of the game if you want to catch fish on the Yellowstone. However, the fishing over here has been hit or miss compared to other Bozeman area rivers. Throw some big articulated flies for a chance at catching a truly quality Montana trout. Otherwise nymphing will pick up whitefish in abundance. If streamer fishing becomes tiresome tie on some flashy droppers and a stonefly nymph to keep the rod bent. Try...

Otherwise nymphing will pick up whitefish in abundance. If streamer fishing becomes tiresome tie on some flashy droppers and a stonefly nymph to keep the rod bent. Try Dungeons in Yellow and Olive, Gongas, and Peanut Envys.

The Yellowstone is a good option if you are looking to throw streamers all day otherwise is the whitefish show unfortunately. You may see some fish up on BWOs on a cloudy day if you are lucky. If you do decide to bend the rod and nymph BWO nymphs, Pat's rubberlegs, lightning bugs, and purple perdigons should catch a lot of whitefish and the odd trout.

The Yellowstone has been hit or miss this last week. With this cold weather we should start to see more bugs on the water and hopefully some trout rising to those bugs. Nymphing has been best but you will catch tons of Whitefish. Good flies have been Pat's Rubberleg's, Wooly Buggers, Lightning Bugs, BWO nymphs, and small SH Pheasant Tails as well as lots of Perdigon style flies. Streamer fishing could pay off this week,...

The Yellowstone has been a bit difficult at the moment but look for that to change soon with cold weather rolling in. The colder temps will help the streamer bite and get the brown trout moving through the river. Nymphing is the best choice with the sunny weather. Euro style flies are a great choice because they sink quickly through the water column. Soft hackle jigs, perdigons, and stonefly nymphs are effective patterns, for both...

Nymphing has been the method of choice in the past week due to the warm weather and sunny days, but cooler and cloudier weather is in the forecast. On the cooler days break out the articulated streamers. White and black are good colors to start with but yellow and olive can also be extremely productive. Dungeons are some of my favorite patterns in olive and yellow. Mayflies have been popping occasionally so keep a lookout...
