Yellowstone River reports

Jason Balogh (fish the fly travel) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: It’s terrestrial time here in Yellowstone country!  The Yellowstone River tops the list for large cutthroat eating small hopper patterns, flying ants, and beetles.  PMD’s and caddis are still on the menu as well.  Cover a lot of water and look for noses tight ot he banks or fish that are cruising.  Make a great cast and you will be rewarded with cutthroat up to 23″!  Tributaries to the Yellowstone, such as Blacktail Deer and Hell Roaring, fish well with mayfly attractors and hoppers.  Now is a grat time to pick any creek in the Park and take a walk with your fly rod….
Closer to home, Lewis Lake has been fly fishing well during PMD hatch times 10am-12pm or so.  Cruise the shorelines and look for rises even if you don’t have a boat.  Caddis action in the evenings has been solid and offers up great fishing for brown trout to 20″.   
Best Flies: Grand Hoppers #10-14, #14-16 Flying Ants, #14-16 Black Beetles, #16 Royal Wulffs, #16 PMD Cripples
