North Fork

August 12, 2019 9:00 am

The North Fork of the Shoshone is fishing very well now top to bottom! However, the river is transitioning after a batch of thunderstorms over the weekend. Visibility is 18-24 inches in Wapiti Valley. The river is more clear as one moves up river to Yellowstone Park.

We are busy guiding Walk/Wade and Float Trips now. Angler success gets better every day as the river and its tributaries drop in flow.

Flows CFS: 535 – (This flow measurement is in Wapiti Valley.)

Hatches are really going on now that the flows are nearing normal for this time of year. Go smaller with nymphs. Tan or black NF specials are rocking it now. Larger dries best during the day. Caddis, pale morning duns, green drakes and gray drakes and yellow Sally are all over the water. It’s dry fly time!
