Yellowstone River Fishing Report, September, 2016

Yellowstone River dirty from recent rain

Thursday, September 22, 2016
1010 CFS @ Corwin - The recent heavy rains have turned the Yellowstone River chocolate for the moment. Once it clears, the cooler weather should bring on some baetis and start to give us some great fall dry fly fishing. Streamer fishing should also be picking up. NOTE - There will no longer be any closed sections as of Friday Sept 23!

More of the Yellowstone River is now open to fishing!

1090 CFS@Corwin - More of the Yellowstone River has continued to open to fishing with the only remaining closed section being from Emmigrant downstream to Pine Creek Bridge. Above and below those access points the river is now open to fishing so get out and enjoy our beautiful fall weather.

1040 CFS@Corwin - An additional 4 miles of the upper Yellowstone River is now open, down to Point of Rocks. The mid-valley remains closed downstream to 89 bridge. Fishing on the open stretches has been excellent with small hoppers or ants. Nymphing streamers with bead droppers has also been good for bigger fish.

1180 CFS @ Corwin - The upper section of the Yellowstone River upstream of Carabella is now open to fishing as well as from 89 downstream. The middle valley remains closed for now. Reports from the lower river are the hopper/dropper fishing has been very good and streamer fishing has been picking up with the cooler temps.

Yellowstone River partially reopens

1170 CFS @ Corwin - Montana FWP has reopened the portion of the Yellowstone from Hwy 89 Bridge downstream. In addition, all the tributaries with the exception of the Shields river are now open. The river above 89 remains closed until further notice. This is great news, but please remember to wash, drain and dry your equipment after fishing!
