Yellowstone River Fishing Report, May, 2016
Monday, May 9, 2016
9560 CFS @ Corwin - The Yellowstone seems to be in full spring runoff mode and is very high and dirty at the moment. It's certainly time to consider other options like the tailwaters or spring creeks. If you do float over there, please consider that floating debris and cold swift water can make it quite dangerous.

7590 CFS @ Corwin - The Yellowstone looks high and dirty for the time being. Warmer weather has caused the Yellowstone to rise and become very off color. Looks like runoff could be starting.

4040 CFS @ Crowin - The Yellowstone River has been rising and it looks like there could be some dirty water in the next few days. Dry fly fishing the last few days has been great with fish eating Caddis and March Browns. Also fishing a rubberlegs or larger stonefly nymph with a caddis pupa can be very productive. Streamer fishing is also starting to pick up.
March Brown #14
