Yellowstone River Fishing Report, July, 2015

Yellowstone River in great shape despite rain

Tuesday, July 28, 2015
2570 CFS @ Corwin - Despite a cold and rainy day yesterday, the Yellowstone River is in great shape this morning. The river has cooled off pretty significantly making the fish pretty happy. Hoppers fished with droppers seems to be the ticket but nymphing with a girdle bug and a bead during the slow times has been productive as well.

Yellowstone River Muddy Up High

Friday, July 24, 2015
2,890 CFS @ Corwin - The Yelllowstone River has a bit of mud moving through today, however it hasn't moved down into the Valley yet. If you're looking to fish it today, you'll want to make your way down to a lower river float. A good bet would be Bird Float or lower. The lower river has had great dry fly fishing in the mornings, and the Hopper bite is picking up during the day.

Yellowstone River Clear and Fishing Well

Monday, July 20, 2015
3,580 CFS @ Corwin - Many of our best reports seem to keep coming from the Yellowstone River. The key has been to get out early or late. Mid-day nymphing has been a bit hit or miss depending on conditions. Early risers have been getting half of their fish on a mid-sized Stonefly dry, and half on the nymph trailing behind. It's all about Caddis and Streamers in the evenings.

Yellowstone River clearing up

Monday, July 13, 2015
3510 @ Corwin - The Yellowstone River looks quite a bit cleaner this morning so it should be a great option for today. Guides who fished it yesterday caught some bigger fish but all nymphing. Look for the dry fly fishing to pick back up as the river continues to clear.

Yellowstone River dirty from mud

Saturday, July 11, 2015
3730 CFS @ Corwin - The Yellowstone is pretty dirty in the valley this morning. There may be some clean water down low below Livingston, but upriver is not much of an option right now. Look for the river to clear over the next day or so hopefully. We'll update as we hear.

Yellowstone River Clearing Up High

Thursday, July 9, 2015
3,780 CFS @ Corwin - The Yellowstone River is clearing up high and is looking pretty good down by Pine Creek. If you're looking to do a float today, we'd recommend going in the mid-valley area. The dry fly bite has been good in the mornings until about 12:00. After that, nymphing takes over for a while. If you stick around, the evening Caddis hatch has been quite prolific.

Yellowstone River went Dirty!

Tuesday, July 7, 2015
3870 @ Corwin - The Yellowstone River has had a couple of mud plugs move through with a little clean water in between. Those who fished it today seemed to have pretty good nymph fishing but it looks like more dirty water is on the way with a recent spike in the Lamar River. We'll update the river condition tomorrow or as it clears.

Yellowstone River fishing good

Saturday, July 4, 2015
4,740 CFS @ Corwin - The Yellowstone River continues to fish very well. Caddis, PMDs, Yellow Sallies and Golden Stones are all still around in great numbers. Dry fly fishing in the shallows or nymphing in the deeper runs has been excellent. Cooler weather is in the forecast so its a good time to get out.

Yellowstone River one of the Best Options

Wednesday, July 1, 2015
4,360 CFS @ Yellowstone River - The Yellowstone River has been one of our go-to spots for the past few weeks. It's in great shape and fishing very well. If you like to throw dry flies to eager trout, this is the place for you. Attractors are on the menu, as well as Caddis and Yellow Sallies. Nymphing the deeper banks has been good as well with Sculpins, Caddis, and PMD nymphs.
