YNP Report 6/10/20

    Current Conditions

    The Firehole River will be the best option by far. Some Caddis on the Firehole, along with some BWO's and PMD's are going to be flying around. You can never go wrong swinging soft hackles over there when fish aren't rising. The Gibbon River and Madison rivers have been fishing decently, though you may need to nymph them up over there. The Lake fishing in the park is picking up as well. Leeches, chironomids and callibaetis -- nymphs and dries -- should work depending on the elevation of the lake.

     

    As always when in the Park, be respectful of the thermal features and the "no tread" zones. Read your regulations and know what's up.

    The Park is closed to fishing for the season. Get out there next year!

    Remember to pinch barbs and no lead in Yellowstone National Park.
