Yellowstone River Fishing Report, April, 2019

Yellowstone Rive rising slowly

Tuesday, April 23, 2019
3060 CFS @ Corwin - The Yellowstone has been slowly rising over the past few days. The visibility is not great at the moment but its still possible to catch a fish or two. If the warmer weather holds off, the river should stabalize and clear up a bit. Nymphing and streamer fishing are you best bet currently. No Caddis yet.

The Upper Madison is fishing well & most of the ramps are now open

1470 CFS @ Corwin - The ramp access on the Yellowstone is getting better however not all are open yet. The water temps are still fairly cold so the streamer bite has been hit or miss. Baetis and midge hatches have been pretty abundant on the warmer afternoons but worms, stoneflies, midges, & baetis nymphs continue to be the most productive.

The Yellowstone is picking up and fishing well right now

1460 CFS @ Corwin - The Yellowstone is really starting to turn on & now would be a great time to head there with the recent decreasing water levels. If throwing streamers is your thing then the Yellowstone is the place to be right now. Baetis are out & the fish are keying in on them so watch for rising fish on the cloudy days.

The Yellowstone is fishing good & pretty much all the ramps are now open

1860 CFS @ Corwin - The Yellowstone has been fishing good & has really picked up this past week. Lots of midges & baetis have been showing up in the afternoons when the wind stays to a minimum. Water temps are still fairly cold so if you're not having success I would reccomend moving on to the next one run. The streamer bite is also picking up!

The Yellowstone is fishing well with good dry fly action in the afternoons

Wednesday, April 3, 2019
1130 CFS @ Corwin - The Yellowstone is starting to turn on with great nymphing and good dry fly action in the afternoons using midges and baetis. Some ramps are now open & pine to 89 is accessible. It shouldn't be long before more ramps start opening up. Nymphs with a little bit of green in them have been producing the most consistent numbers.
