[ARCHIVE] Yellowstone River Report 7/13/2020
Yellowstone 7/13: It’s ready. Although still a tad on the high side, clarity is good enough to fish. Fish are on the big bug late morning. A little higher water allows access to debris and structure that will soon be resting on dry gravel bars. A smaller size Fat Frank is a good choice. During the afternoon, fishing a double dry fly setup of a Jack Cabe and a purple haze will produce. Nymph fisherman should have success with a big rubber leg fished down deep. Also try dead drifting buggers. Fishing hopper patterns now before the fish have seen scads of artificial flies is a good tactic.
