YNP Report - September 14, 2023

September is always a period in our fishing season when we transition from summer to fall, and this upcoming week, we are right in the middle of that turnover.

We are approaching full “Go Time” on YNP’s fabled fall fisheries close to West Yellowstone, but we’re not quite there yet. Water temps on the Firehole and Madison rivers are still flirting with the 70 degree mark on warm afternoons, but next week’s cool down and wet weather may be just what we need to put the final nail in summer’s coffin, and usher in the first solid push of migrating fish and fall hatches. So, keep an eye on forecasts, and water temps, and swing by the shop, or give us a call for the most up-to-date info and reports.

Elsewhere in the park you can expect to enjoy some fun terrestrial fishing with ants and hopers for the next few days. These may be some of our last warm days to target Cutthroat with big hoppers on waters like Slough and Soda Butte Creeks, or the Lamar River.

It may also be one of the last warm weekends to head into the backcounty, get away from the crowds, and enjoy some good dry fly fishing with terrestrials.

So get out there, and enjoy what may be some of our last summertime fishing, and the start of an exciting fall!

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.
