Yellowstone River Fishing Report

Summary: We received reports from two guides today, both floated in close proximity to town (Livingston).  Both reports were good but less than spectacular, which was surprising due to the great water temps and perfect spring weather.   Maybe such great conditions just freaked the trout out today as they’ve seen massive extremes in weather over the past couple weeks.

Best Technique: Both boats caught a good number of fish (about 15/boat), using a variety of techniques, but shallow water nymphing (about three feet) in the foam holes was definitely the most productive.

Weather & Water Conditions: 65 degrees, light downstream wind with water temps between 48 and 52.

Hatches: Light midge and baetis in the afternoon.

Best Bugs: King Prince, Tungsten Pheasant Tail sz 16 & zebra midge or black copper john sz 16-18.
