Spring has sprung, having our typical wet start but forcast shows improvement this weekend for the Yellowstone Park opener.
Forecast calls for 60% chance of showers Friday and then dropping to 20% through next week. Temps upper 50's to low 60's
through the weekend and then 60's and 70's into next week.
Flow at Hebgen is 722 cfs, Kirby 1200 cfs and Varney around 1900 cfs. Quake to MacAtee is now open year round and
the upper river above the West Fork still has a foot or two of visability. Look for BWOs and March Browns and even a few
caddis on warmer afternoons. Stone fly nymph with a dropper along the banks or swinging a wolly bugger should produce as
The Gallatin is off color from the Park boundary to Bozeman.
Hebgen – 91% full. Buggers, leeches and cray fish patterns. Midges are popping on warm afternoons - a boat or inflatable
works best as they just seem to be out of reach to the shore anglers.
Quake Lake - wait
Henry's Lake – Opens May 28 - fish the shallows
Yellowstone Park fishing opens May 28 - including Yellowstone Lake.
Permit fees stayed the same this year - $18 for 3 Day, $25 for 7 Day and $40 for the Season.
Road Construction between Norris and Mammoth continues this year expect 30 minute delays.
Mid 50's to low 60's with 20% chance of showers should make for a good opening weekend on the Firehole and Madison -- soft
hackle fare with caddis, PMDs and BWOs should make the day. Lots of new patterns to check out at the shop.
Flows into the Box at 446 cfs. With IP res is just about full, so maybe a little more water soon to make for a better float.
Rubber legs and zebra midges - maybe some Salmon flies by middle of next week as temps warm up..
Last Chance area above the Ranch - BWOs and March Browns and few caddis as things warm up.
Riverside to Warm River is seeing some of the big bugs. Golden stones should start getting active between Warm River and
Ashton this coming week.
