Fins and Feathers out of Bozeman rates the Yellowstone River a 3/5 as of March 26th.  Here is the their latest fishing report:

Current Conditions

The Yellowstone River is still a little dirty, especially below Livingston. Nymphing has been the best with Pat’s Rubberlegs, Prince nymphs, Caddis larva, Zebra Midges, and Copper Johns. Streamer fishing has been really hit or miss but this is a good time of year to throw some especially if the nymphing is slow. We have heard of decent Midge dry fishing on the right day and the BWOs are just around the corner. Watch for fish rising to midges in the foamy back eddies and runs. A small Parachute Adams or a Griffith’s Gnat or Peacock Cluster a great flies to trick these fish.

Fins & Feathers is a full-service Bozeman fly shop and Montana fly fishing outfitter. Yellowstone River fly fishing trips are available year-round with our Bozeman fly fishing guides.
