Yellowstone Lake and River below Fishing Bridge

August 11, 2019 9:00 am

Yellowstone Lake is fishing well along the edges. Lake trout, if caught, must be killed immediately. Check your Park regulations on what to do with lake trout. All cutthroat must be released!! Streamers have been working well, whether in a boat or fishing from shore. Black, olive or brown woolly buggers are reliable. Size 4-10.

The Yellowstone River at LeHardy Rapids is flowing 2420 cfs today – down from our last report.  Wading the edges is recommended unless you are a strong wading fisherman!!

Hatches are caddis, pale morning duns, stoneflies, green drakes and gray drakes. Match the hatch for great fun!! Dry dropper rigs are working well along the edges. Watch out for buffalo walking into the river beside you!
