Yellowstone River Report 08/13/18

Flows have continued to drop and the water warm up. Start looking to get out early on the bright and sunny days as fish will be skittish about coming up to the dry fly. Fish a big dry or smaller hopper pattern with a long dropper nymph.  For hopper patterns, tan, peach and olive body colors are good choices in a Yellowstoner Chubby or Fat Frank. Fish are also eating the small dry like a Purple Haze when fishing likely holding water. If float fishing, note that the road at the Indian Fort FAS at Reed Point is closed.
