Dead Indian Creek reports

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.


>









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.
