Yellowstone River Fishing Report, August, 2016

Fly fishing the Yellowstone River has been great

Saturday, August 13, 2016
1670 CFS @ Corwin - With water temps back in the mid 60s, the Yellowstone has been fishing very well. Morning nymphing and afternoon hopper fishing has been the program. Hopper/dropper is the way to go as the fish have been a little more timid when coming to the surface. Smaller hoppers, ants and beetles have been best.

Hoot Owl Restrictions have been lifted from Carters Bridge to Springdale but remain from the bridge at Springdale downstream.

1980 CFS @ Corwin - Water temps have really cooled off on the Yellowstone River, but despite that, Hoot Owl restrictions remain in place from Carters Bridge downstream. Upstream in the valley, morning nymphing has been great and fishing a hopper in the afternoon has caught some nice fish. Hopper/dropper has been very effective.

2780 CFS @ Corwin - The Yellowstone River continues to fish well. We're welcoming some cooler weather this week as the hot weekend slowed things a bit in the afternoons. Mornings have been very good for nymphing and in the early afternoon, the hopper bite seems to turn on. Hoot Owl Restrictions from Carters downstream start Tuesday..
