Yellowstone Lake and River below Fishing Bridge

October 14, 2019 9:00 am

Check for Yellowstone Park gate and facilities CLOSURES for October 2019.

Yellowstone Lake is fishing fair 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 576 cfs.

Fish above Lehardy Rapids. Few trout are below the rapids now that we are into mid-October conditions. Hatches are BWO’s and gray drakes. Match the hatch for great fun!! Dry dropper rigs are working well along the edges. Streamers work well late in the season. Expect to find competition in the buckets and runs above LeHardy!

Watch out for bears or buffalo walking into the river beside you! Bear spray recommended.
