Clarity of the Yellowstone River in town is pictured above (5/15)

Clarity in town today looks around a foot or so but we have darker/muddier water coming from Gardiner. The Sheild’s has been hanging in there but will likely be spitting mud in the next couple days. Despite the decent clarity and good numbers of caddis the fishing has been slow in general. The streamer bite has been spotty with only a few good reports of nice fish being caught. Looks like today could be one of the last days to try before the rollercoaster of runoff begins…
