Good news! Thanks to Angler’s West Fly Fishing for sharing this report from July 1st:
The Yellowstone River has slowly begun to drop into shape. In the last week, we have seen significant improvements in water level and clarity. Today the river is at 12,400 cfs near Corwin Springs, and 11,200 cfs in Livingston. The fact that there is more volume in Gardiner causes us to believe that there will be some mud coming through the system shortly and that the river may be back on the rise. Despite lack of clarity(8 in.) in the river, anglers are testing the waters and giving day time floats a shot. Boat ramps are starting to come alive, as more and more trailers are being parked throughout the valley. Salmon flies are out and about throughout the valley, although we have yet to hear of any dry fly fishing to be done. Nymph rigs hard along the banks and around riffle corners have been producing decent opportunity to catch fish. Be prepared to lose some flies, but don’t worry, we have all the flies you’ll need to refill your box! If you are going to float the river, please be use as many precautions as possible with high flows and changes in river structure following high water. Come on by the shop on your way to the river for an updated report and any other questions you may have about fishing the river at this time. Stay tuned as we will have more up to date information on the river in the coming weeks. Everything is looking good, and we are hoping the river will be back to itself much sooner than we had originally thought.
