Yellowstone River Fishing Report, October, 2014

Yellowstone River Improving

Thursday, October 30, 2014
1,630 CFS ➡️ The Yellowstone River has started to pick up now that we are seeing some cooler, cloudy weather. The main issue there now has been the "W" factor. The wind has been howling at times, with gusts up to 30-40mph. That can make things interesting while fishing. That being said, if you can find a calm day, fishing has been very solid, on nymphs, dries, and streamers.

Yellowstone River Picking Up with Cooler Weather

Sunday, October 26, 2014
1,620 CFS ➡️ The Yellowstone River has heated back up now that we're seeing some cooler weather. Sunny days have been tough, and the wind has made things interesting. If you can get clouds, like today, you'll be in for good fishing. Dries and streamers are certainly good options, and while nymphs will get you the numbers, you'll have to sort thru the Whiteys to find the Trout.

1,770 CFS ➡️ If you can handle the wind, you'll have a chance at a great day on the Yellowstone River. It is always a bit hit or miss this time of year, however when it's on, fishing can be better than any other time of the year. Streamer guys have been pounding the banks looking for hogs, however if that's not your style, rig up the nymphs and keep your eyes peeled for rising fish.

Yellowstone River Looking Great!

Wednesday, October 15, 2014
1,860 CFS ➡️ The Yellowstone River has been a bit hit or miss lately...But that's October on the 'Stone for you. Look for the cloudy days, as those will be your best chances for good fishing. Streamer guys have been working hard for their catch, however there have been some really nice Browns caught the past few days. Nymphing will get you through the slow parts of the day.

Yellowstone River Looking Good

Saturday, October 11, 2014
1,890 CFS ➡️ October on the Yellowstone River can be an excellent time. From the reports we've heard, fishing has been solid. Nymphing has been the main source of action, supplying the angler with plenty of Trout and Whitefish eats. If you're looking to reduce the number of Whitefish caught, switch to the dry fly or streamer. This is a great time to target the bigger Browns.

Yellowstone River Clear, Fishing Well

Monday, October 6, 2014
2,070 CFS ➡️ The Yellowstone River has returned to its normal October self after some Fall rainstorms. The entire river is clear and is fishing quite well. Nymph fisherman have been getting plenty of trout, just as long as they can handle the hot Whitefish bite as well. Dry fly fishing have been good as well with smaller Mayfly patterns. Don't forget the big streamers at home!

Yellowstone River MUDDY, Clearing up High

Wednesday, October 1, 2014
2,390 CFS ⬆️ The Yellowstone River has seen varying conditions over the past couple of days. With rainstorms moving through daily, there has been some mud moving down. In town, the river has about 1-2' of visibility, which is really nice for the streamer guys. The upper river looks to be clearer, however the Lamar River is spiking pretty hard, so we could see another mud plug soon.
