Yellowstone River Fishing Well When Wind Is Down

Monday, January 26, 2015
1,520 CFS ➡️ If you've been wanting to get out on the Yellowstone River, this may be your time. We've been talking to a few guys who have been doing well on streamers and deep nymph rigs. If you can get a day without gale-force winds, swinging the two-handed rod through those slower runs can really pay off. Midge hatches have been a bit sporadic, but don't forget the dries at home.

Yellowstone Relatively Ice Free

1,500 CFS ➡️ (Livingston) The Yellowstone River is relatively ice free judging by the webcams. If you're looking to do a bit of fishing, try to find some slower inside seams. Nymphing is the way to go this time of year, with mainly Stoneflies, Midges, and small Pink BH stuff. It's never a bad time to bust out the streamer, and it's a good time to practice your two handed casting.

Yellowstone River Clear, but Slow

Wednesday, January 7, 2015
The Yellowstone River is always a bit hit or miss this time of year. Right now, judging by the webcams, there is not a lot of ice flowing down, so it is fishable. If know of some good wade fishing water, and want to give it a shot, your best bet will be nymphing or swinging streamers through the deeper runs. That said, on the right day, look for midges to be hatching as well.
