Yellowstone National Park Fly Fishing Report
Over the last few days, thunderstorms and associated rainfall has clouded up some of
the streams in the park but they are clearing and mostly back in good shape. The
weather for the park looks good for the next week. There's about a 30% chance of rain
for Thursday and Friday of this week.
The Firehole River is too warm except for the headwaters above Old Faithful. The
Madison and lower Gibbons are still fishable but you would be better off fishing other
locations in the park. They both are peaking at marginal water temperatures.
The Gallatin River has cleared up and looking good. It's producing good catches from
its headwaters to the lower section and beyond. There's still some Salmonflies, plenty of
Golden Stoneflies, Yellow Salleys, Pale Morning Dun mayflies, Green Drakes and plenty
of Spotted Sedges.
The Gardner River is still in good shape with Salmonflies hatching on the upper end,
plenty of Goldens and a few Green Drakes.
The Yellowstone Grand and Black Canyons have been the hot ticket lately after
clearing up and should produce good for a few more days. The upper section of the
Yellowstone River opens July 15th.
Slough Creek and Soda Butte Creek are now in good shape. The Lamar River is also
but is always subject to change with upstream rain. Salmonflies, Golden Stoneflies are
in some sections of the Lamar and Soda Butte. There's some Green Drakes hatching
along with PMDs in all three streams.
We don't have any reports from the South end of the park but the Snake and Lewis
Rivers should also be getting into good shape.
