Fishing Conditions

September 29, 2022

The Yellowstone is as clear as it gets, and fishing well. However keep your eye out for some storms this upcoming weekend as it could push through another plug with how much rain is expected in the Lamar valley. The Whitefish spawn is happening right now so nymphers beware. A good way to avoid some whitey's and get into some larger trout are to set up a nymph rig with streamers. So instead of fishing a rubber legs or worm up top, you can put a mccune's sculpin or belly ache minnow as your lead fly and behind it put another small streamer like a wooly bugger or kreelex behind it.
