Default Update: Late Season Advice, please.

We had a great time. A couple of new fishes for both of us, grayling and cutthroats. I had a personal best with a 23" plus brown. A small stream near the south entrance to Yellowstone and Clarks fork were our favorites. I would like to see the Firehole with a major hatch going. Next on the list is some Pa. limestones. Thanks for all the help and advice.

Congrats on the big big Brownie! Did he come out of the small stream you mention? If so, even better...nothing like drilling a huge fish in small water. I will be out with my streamer wallet in search of one a fish like that for the rest of the fall.

We don't fish down there that often, but nailed it one time when they were taking PMG emergers, the whole river seemed to be full of trout snouts breaking the surface, coupled with the scenary and the bison wathcing us, an unforgetable day

To all,

What a great thread.

To all of you "locals" I hope you understand and cherish the waters around you and may I thank you for doing your part to preserve them and share some of their secrets. Although I am new to this site, your real time reports and willingness to share information is what I find the most appealing. My "DIY Trip 2012" will take place next September. The anticipation grows by the day and threads like these allow me to dream a bit as fall approaches and winter moves towards the Northeast.

Roadkill;

Just head west while you still can. Two grumpy old men, couple flyrods, a mission to catch fish? What could be better? Just do it and worry about the details later.

Good luck.

Trying to post a couple of pics - may not work. Thanks.
The $70 all weather Kodak from Walmart gave me good service.


Pretty fish.

No the brown came out of the Green River, dredging a wooly and #10 yellow nymph. It may have seen the nymph as some of the salmon spawn. Lots of dead salmon in the green river. Also lots of vegetation floating in the water, made it hard to fish.
