North Fork Anglers reports

Tim Wade (North Fork Anglers) reported - 4 - Poor fly fishing: Done until spring. (11/12/09)
Tim Wade (North Fork Anglers) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Flows dropped today to normal winter levels of 350 cfs. (11/12/09)
Tim Wade (North Fork Anglers) reported - 3 - Fair fly fishing: Very slow fishing. Cold water temps have this section slow until next summer. (11/11/09)
Tim Wade (North Fork Anglers) reported - 3 - Fair fly fishing: Cooler water tems have slowed the fishing in this pond. (11/11/09)
Tim Wade (North Fork Anglers) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Hatches are yellow sally's, caddis and mayflies. Nymph these creeks with smaller Copper Johns, NF Specials, Prince nymphs and Yuk Bugs. Dries are the same as for the upper Clarks Fork.
(08/15/09)
Tim Wade (North Fork Anglers) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Clear and in fine shape for fishing. Wading is still a bit dicey inside the USFS boundary at Cabin Creek. Fishing has been spotty but the trout will take bead-head nymphs fished deep. Best time to fish has been in the late afternoons thru dusk when the hatches are on.
(08/15/09)
Tim Wade (North Fork Anglers) reported - 1 - Excellent fly fishing: The main stem stayed clean later last night despite the rain. Lower down is colored, but fishable now. Yellow tarantulas, tan caddis, green drakes, pmds, royal trudes, Chubby Cousins, and NF Specials should be in your box before taking on the North Fork this week.

(08/15/09)
Tim Wade (North Fork Anglers) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Flows have dropped to 1200 cfs. Water conditions turned from clear and fishing well to muddy and slow fishing about a week ago when the Absaroka/Beartooth Mtns with a series of thunderstorms. Surprisingly, the rain event that hit the lower North Fork of the Shoshone 'whistlef' through Buffalo Bill Reservoir and has impacted water clarity on this popular tailwater. We hope this changes soon because the browns, rainbows and cutts were eating flies regularly before the rain event.
(08/15/09)
Tim Wade (North Fork Anglers) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: The trout are taking wooly buggers, hare's ear's, Bow Ties, Griffith's gnats, Zebra midges (Tim's favorite fly for this lake!) Callibaetis and small tan hoppers such as the Frankenhopper work well, especially on windy days .
(08/15/09)
Tim Wade (North Fork Anglers) reported - 3 - Fair fly fishing: Please take note! Water temperatures have climbed into that zone where release mortality can occur. Fish early or late and get the fish into the net quickly for a safe release.

If you can't do that, do the fishery a favor and long-distance release (break them off) the fish!!

If you love E. Newton's big fish, forget fishing there mid-July through the end of August, when the water temperature and the associated stress is less likely to result in a dead trophy trout.

If you think you can catch and release without killing a trout, these are the hatches: Callibaetis, damsels, long horn caddis, traveling sedges and tricos.

YELLOWSTONE PARK
Enjoy spectacular scenery and great fishing on the Lamar River, Soda Butte Creek, Slough Creek, the Yellowstone River, and Yellowstone Lake.More Info on Yellowstone Park

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK - YELLOWSTONE RIVER- Due to lake trout predation, Yellowstone cutthroat numbers are down and the fishing could be tough to no fish. Sorry to tell you that because this was once the PREMIER river to fish in Yellowstone Park. Hatches are thick, but the trout are scarce.

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK - YELLOWSTONE LAKE- Wooly buggers, Hares Ears, Callibaetis, and small midge pupae are working well. The west side of the lake is fishing best. Even lakers are being caught in the Bridge Bay/Gull Point area on streamers. Remember!! It is illegal to release a lake trout alive. All lake trout must be dispatched and removed from Yellowstone Lake.

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK - FIREHOLE/GIBBON/MADISONThese rivers are getting tougher to fish due to increasing angler activity and increasing water temps.

Rusty Spinners, Hemingway caddis, and Griffith's gnats work for dries. Smaller bead-head nymphs and caddis emerger patterns are best. Get a drag free drift and you will probably have a hook up. Streamers are also working well, especially on the lower Madison below 7 Mile Bridge.

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK - LAMAR/ SLOUGH CREEK/ SODA BUTTE -

Golden stones, caddis, green drakes and PMD's should be seen while fishing this area of YNP. Hoppers, beetles, stonefly nymphs, PT's, Copper Johns and North Fork Specials work well until the hatches begin. Keep your eyes 'peeled' for those!










LAKES and RESERVOIRS
Fishermen preferring all types of angling tactics have discovered the treasures found in local ponds and reservoirs created for irrigation and agrarian uses. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has stocked many of these water storage impoundments with a variety of trout. Due to the mineral content of the mountainous soils, the water in these man-made lakes are rich with aquatic insects and crustaceans which translates into good to trophy sized trout in most of these impoundments. For the fly fisherman, this also translates into a rod-bending great time.More Info on Lakes and Reservoirs


EAST and WEST NEWTON LAKES Please take note! Water temperatures have climbed into that zone where release mortality can occur. Fish early or late and get the fish into the net quickly for a safe release.

If you can't do that, do the fishery a favor and long-distance release (break them off) the fish!!

If you love E. Newton's big fish, forget fishing there mid-July through the end of August, when the water temperature and the associated stress is less likely to result in a dead trophy trout.

If you think you can catch and release without killing a trout, these are the hatches: Callibaetis, damsels, long horn caddis, traveling sedges and tricos.

LUCE RESERVOIR The trout are taking wooly buggers, hare's ear's, Bow Ties, Griffith's gnats, Zebra midges (Tim's favorite fly for this lake!) Callibaetis and small tan hoppers such as the Frankenhopper work well, especially on windy days .

HOGAN RESERVOIR - Same flies as Luce.

SOUTH FORK ABATEMENT DIKE Streamers (mix it up) will be the best bet for the trout, especially along the deep water portions of the abatement pond. Callibaetis are also hatching and will provide dry action midday.

If you like to catch carp on a fly rod, this reservoir has some big ones! Be prepared for cruising carp by having some small crayfish patterns in your fly box.









Hatches are yellow sally's, caddis and mayflies. Nymph these creeks with smaller Copper Johns, NF Specials, Prince nymphs and Yuk Bugs. Dries are the same as for the upper Clarks Fork.

Hatches are yellow sally's, caddis and mayflies. Nymph these creeks with smaller Copper Johns, NF Specials, Prince nymphs and Yuk Bugs. Dries are the same as for the upper Clarks Fork.

Tim Wade (North Fork Anglers) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Crandall is muddy from rain. Hatches are yellow sally's, caddis and mayflies. Nymph these creeks with smaller Copper Johns, NF Specials, Prince nymphs and Yuk Bugs. Dries are the same as for the upper Clarks Fork.
(08/15/09)
Tim Wade (North Fork Anglers) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Finally fishable and wadeable. Small golden stones, pmds, caddis, green drakes, yellow sallies, and various attractors will be the game in the canyoun right now.
(08/15/09)
Tim Wade (North Fork Anglers) reported - 1 - Excellent fly fishing: Clearing again. The trout will be looking up for dries. Caddis, hoppers, and stoneflies are best, but nymphs fished deep along the edges are still the best producers for the bigger browns, bows and cutts in the lower Clarks Fork. Mayfly and caddis action has been good on the lower river. If the trout won't heat a hopper pattern, try a parachute Adams, elk hair caddis or yellow humpy.

If fishing a dropper, make it at least 3' long behind your dry fly of choice. In heavy water, fish big, heavy halfbacks, Yuk Bugs, woolly buggers and Bitch Creeks deep for best results.

(08/15/09)
Tim Wade (North Fork Anglers) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: The flows are still high, but the upper South Fork is clear and very fishable, especially inside the Shoshone Forest above Cabin Creek. Fish the edges with big stonefly nymphs, followed with a smaller bead-headed nymph or soft hackle. Black or tan N. Fork Specials work well, so do size 10 copper Johns and epoxy golden stones. Hatches are golden stones, some caddis and green drakes inside the Forest boundary. Bigger dries, such as stimulators, royal Trudes, Chernobyl ants and Turcks tarantulas are good this time of year.
(07/19/09)
Tim Wade (North Fork Anglers) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: The entire river is fishing well now. We're still taking more trout on nymphs right now, but with the drop in flows this week and the emergence of salmonflies, golden stones, green drakes and several species of caddis, the trout are FINALLY responding to dries.

Nymphing with big (size 2-6) stonefly nymphs still work best in the mornings. By midday, larger dries will 'pound' up the bigger trout. Fun, fun, fun!! Use Halfbacks, Yuk Bugs, Bitch Creeks or Wire Stones for the big nymphs and drop size 8-12 Bloody Marys, North Fork Specials, Copper Johns, epoxy golden stones and trout pupae (egg patterns) behind them.

(07/19/09)
Tim Wade (North Fork Anglers) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Flows have dropped to 1400 cfs. This is great news for those of us wanting to fish the lower river. Streamers, sow bugs, San Juan worms, Ptails, caddis pupae, and golden stone nymphs will work well at this flow.
(07/19/09)
Tim Wade (North Fork Anglers) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Water temps have not yet reached the critical stage as at East Newton. The fish are taking Wooly buggers, Hare's Ear's, Bow Ties, and Griffith's Gnats, Zebra midges (Tim's favorite fly for this lake!) Callibaetis and small tan hoppers such as the Frankenhopper work well, especially on windy days .
