Yellowstone National Park

Tuesday, October 9, 2018

 The Lamar is currently flowing at 164 cfs. Soda Butte is dropping and is at 4.55 cfs.


North Entrance/Mammoth

 Caddis patterns, - Spruce Moths- large attractors, beetles, and Green Drakes should fare well. A good number of fish are feeding on these bugs - fishing a PT, frenchie, or hares ear dropper is a good option.

 West Entrance/Madison Junction 

 The Firehole, Gibbon and Madison are all fishing great but are seeing a ton of pressure. Your best bets are to get off the beaten path and pack your bear spray. Woolly buggers are a good streamer option. Green nymphs coupled with a Hare's Ear or Rubberlegs should get into some fish. BWO, Beetles, Adam's, and Caddis patterns are a solid dry fly option and have yielded some nice browns. Miday Hopper action is phenomenal right now. Try dead drifting and switch to small twitches to get some awesome strikes.
