Yellowstone River Update – 06/19/10

Montana Fly Fishing Yellowstone River

Those of you planning an early July trip might just be in luck this year.  The Yellowstone River is dropping fast and starting to show signs of clearing up.  The bottom appears to have dropped out of the Lamar River which is currently running at 2,750 cfs and is one of the major sources of mud for the Yellowstone.  The river in Livingston is running at 11,500 cfs, and the water is just starting to change from a dirty brown to a green hugh with about 4-6 inches of visibility.   If this trend continues it has the makings for some good clear water salmon fly action!  Keep your fingers crossed and we’ll keep you updated.
