Yellowstone River Fishing Report, July, 2016

Hopper time on the Yellowstone River

Monday, July 25, 2016
2600 CFS @ Corwin - The Hopper fishing on the Yellowstone River has been getting good in the afternoons. Nymphing has been best in the mornings, but around lunch time, fishing a hopper in the shallows along the deeper troughs has been very productive for some nicer fish. Yellow Sallies and a few evening Caddis are still around.

2890 CFS @ Corwin - Fishing on the Yellowstone River has been very good lately as the fish are finally looking up for hoppers. Caddis and yellow sallies are also around in good numbers, especially in the afternoons. A dry/dropper rig has been very effective as has been a girdle bugger fished shallow with a short indicator.

Yellowstone River clearing up

Wednesday, July 13, 2016
3660 CFS @ Corwin - 2' of visibility is the current report on the Yellowstone River in Paradise Valley. The river has been dropping and turning green since last night and should keep clearing through the day. Nymphing a small streamer and a bead should be great as dry fly fishing might be off for a day or two.

Yellowstone River dirty from a mud plug

Monday, July 11, 2016
4380 CFS @ Corwin - The cold and rain for the past 2 days has caught up with the Yellowstone River today as it is dirty from YNP all the way down past Livingston. With the rain subsiding and the cooler weather hanging around, look for the river to clear over the next few days and the fishing to be outstanding. Keep posted!

Yellowstone River clean after plug

Saturday, July 9, 2016
3620 CFS @ Corwin - A short plug of mud moved through the Yellowstone River a few days ago, but it it again in great shape. Caddis, Yellow Sallies, a few PMDs and the nocturnal stones are all over the river meaning the fish are definitely looking up. Dry fly fishing has been good but nymphing has been best for the bigger fish.

Yellowstone River a great choice for fishing

Saturday, July 2, 2016
4340 CFS @ Corwin - The Yellowstone has been excellent lately with good dry fly fishing throughout the day and great nymphing for bigger fish. Golden Stones, Yellow Sallies, Caddis and a few PMDs are all prevalent. Dry fly fishing has been best mid-day, but nymphing has been solid throughout. Fish should be looking for hoppers soon.
