Salmonflies are in the Air

Salmonflies have been around on the Madison in the Park for a few days now, and fish have been caught on the big bugs. This pretty brown anxiously jumped on a well-placed Chubby Chernobyl near Madison Junction a few evenings ago.

YNP Opening Weekend Fishing Report

Yellowstone National Park's 2017 fishing season kicked off this past Saturday, and here's a brief rundown of what folks found on the rivers:

The Firehole fished well with soft hackles on Saturday and Sunday, with most anglers able to hook plenty of fish on the swing. Dry fly fishing was ok in spots on Saturday, with some PMDs and Caddis present, but limited numbers of rising fish. Sunday saw fewer bugs, and accordingly, fewer risers. Flows spiked Sunday evening, signalling that runoff is picking back up again with warmer air temperatures. Forecasts are calling for highs in the 60s and even low 70s for the next few days, so we expect the water to continue to rise for at least the next few days, which will make dry fly fishing difficult at best. Swinging soft hackles, nymphing, and fishing small streamers should continue to produce this week through the high water.

The Madison and Gibbon both produced a few fish over the weekend on nymphs and streamers, but the water here is still high, cold, and tea-colored, and we expect the clarity to worsen over the next few days of warm weather. Streamers and large nymphs will continue to produce a fish here and there, but it will probably take another week or so before the water rounds into better shape for dry fly fishing.
