Yellowstone River Report 05/20/19

The river was running extremely high and off color, then subsided a bit with the cooler temperatures. If there are heavy localized rains this week, flows will likely rapidly increase again. Runoff is likely here to stay and the cottonwood hatch will get going and the river will be extremely hazardous. There may be some spots here and there to fish like side channels to fish, but unless one can find a safe spot, it’s best just to stay away from it. Seek out smaller tributaries, tailwaters and lakes until after runoff.
