THAT AND THAT
.. Gallatin River? Probably next week. But there's still good action under water.
A few notes about fly fishing in and around Yellowstone National Park.
For the most part the rainy (and sometimes snowy) weather thus far in June has kept the hatches rolling on the Firehole. Like the bugs and feeding fish, fisherfolk have been (and still are) plentiful.
Flows have settled quite a bit over the past 2 days (412 cfs in the canyon this morning with today’s average flow 348 cfs); the water is warming enough that some of the regulars have been wading wet during these recent warming afternoons. (This is one of my favorite rivers to wade wet; you can through October in most years).
Mid-day fishing is beginning to slow just a bit as we ease into more of a true summer pattern this week; it was warm yesterday and will be even warmer today. There are still mayflies coming off, though the late afternoon – early evening Caddis will become more and more important as we nearer and nearer to June.
