YNP Report - June 13, 2024

This past week’s warm temps and rain made many of our favorite June fisheries high and muddy, but conditions have improved and we’re seeing some good fishing again on the Gibbon, Madison, and Firehole Rivers in YNP.

With warm temps and sunny skies in the forecast for the weekend, expect to see the bulk of the better dry fly fishing happening in the mornings and evenings with caddis and pmd spinners. Flies like an Iris Caddis and Copenhaver Spinner will do the trick when you find fish rising on the Firehole and Madison.

Cool, wet weather is predicted for Tuesday and Wednesday next week. These are ideal conditions to see more emergences of PMD and Baetis mayflies. If the forecast holds true temps will struggle to get out of the 40’s on Monday. With cooler temps, plan on fishing from late morning through the afternoon for the best shot at finding a good hatch of mayflies.

Pocket-water sections of the Gibbon River (above and below the falls) are a great place to prospect with a dry-dropper rig. Jo Jo’s Golden Stone with any of the Category 3 nymph droppers like the Gummers Carpet Caddis would be a good choice here.

Despite the warm temps lately, a good bit of snow still remains in the high country of the park, and runoff is in full swing throughout the rest of the Park waters. We are still a few more weeks away from seeing fishable conditions on most of our summertime favorites like Slough Creek and the Lamar River.

Stay up to date on flows HERE, and as always, give us a shout at the shop 406-646-7801 for the most current reports and conditions.

Yellowstone

An angler could spend a lifetime of summers exploring and mastering the roadside waters of Yellowstone Park alone. Rivers like the Madison, Gallatin, Gibbon, Firehole, Lamar, and Yellowstone all have relatively easy access. And that is just a small fraction of the over 200 fishable streams and 45 fishable lakes in the Park.
