Planning A Yellowstone Fly Fishing Trip - Gibbon River - Part 11
This is an image of the typical caddisfly activity on a late June or early July
evening. Most anglers miss out on some of their best opportunities because
they stop fishing too early in the afternoon. Several species of caddisflies hatch
during the early Summer with the Spotted Sedge probably being the most
plentiful of them.
Although the temperature may reach the low nineties during the day, at night it
usually drops down to the low forties or high thirties and even lower some days.
At times the caddisflies will become almost dormant by early morning. There's a
tremendous variation in the air temperatures during the day at Yellowstone.
Even on the lower Gibbon River, the elevation is over 6,000 feet.
