Fished the Upper Madison today for about 2 hours.. air temp was 78 degrees .. unbelievable.

Couple dinkers (8" or so), couple smallies - 12-14", a couple of 16", and my wife got one brown at 18".. lost a few more good fish

Browns and rainbows.. just nice to be on the water

Sounds like a gorgeous day across the state. I was confined to town today. The rivers are up up and away...

Just got back from a week in Livingston, great town and the guys at Yellowstone Angler's were awesome. Yellowstone to high and muddy to fish but had great days on Armstrong Creek and Burns Lake. Even drove the 6 hour round trip to the Bighorn for a great day. Not a question of IF I'll go back but WHEN, for those of you that live in that area, you are the lucky one's!!

The Yellowstone is almost fishable again. Down to about 4000 cfs and a bit over a foot of visibility. Cool weather is predicted for the next few days, so it could get decent. Right before the rise last week the Mother's Day caddis hatch was beginning. I was on the river Sunday a week ago and there was a short period of time when the caddis were getting pretty thick in the air but they weren't on the water and nothing was rising. Caught several nice rainbows on nymphs and one on a streamer.

Sounds good al_a, we had a big cool front push through too and the rivers dropped hard and fast. But the levels were so high that even with the drop it's still un-fishable around here.

If there are caddis in the air they came from under the water...when you don't see risers do you fish Sparkle Pupa or other soft hackled varieties?

The smaller rivers in my corner of the state have cleared and dropped. Salmons, goldens, skwalas, sallies, and march browns all flying at the same time. Fish are looking up and HUNGRY...

Which corner might that be, smokeybear? With the temps expected to reach the high 80s today the big push of water is right around the corner. It is run-off season...
