Like a steam locomotive rollin' down the track, another summer week flies by in the caldera. With heat and sunshine prevailing, not many significant changes can be logged this week. So make hay while the sun is shining! The dry fly still rules the park during this time, sorry euro-nymphers and streamer junkies. Whether you want to spend the day throwing a large purple chubby + perdigon dropper in the Yellowstone canyon, or an early morning on the lake while letting a sz 16 Jojo's Callibaetis marinate on the shoreline cruising zone, there are a myriad of fun opportunities right now. Give the thermal-influenced waters a break and stick to the cooler stuff. The Gallatin, Gardner, and NE Corner are all solid options.
For those who enjoy a little hiking with your stillwater, Grebe Lake, Heart Lake, and Trout Lake can all be productive trips right now. There are plenty of fish-filled lakes in the park to explore. You don't know til you go! Grab a buddy and get after it while it's good. Find a shady spot to hangout under until the evening hatches. Put in the effort and one can avoid the July mashup while finding solitude and happy fish. Just make sure you have enough coffee, snacks, and 1977 Dead shows in your rig to quell the construction traffic blues.
Stop into the shop to let us know how the fishing was and to check out the new gear coming in daily. A cold six-pack may induce an extended spilling of the beans. We'll help you plan your next angling venture. Cheers!
