Yellowstone River

Rating - Poor   

Friday, Jan 15 2021
The Stone will be a tough option as the big ice shelves are formed and the slush is in the river. Besides some Brown trout that will be spawning, the fish will be seeking out the warm water in the bottom of deep runs. Even with lower winter flows a long leader is usually needed to reach the fish in the bottom. If you plan on nymphing you can keep it simple with; rubberlegs, worms, pheasant tails, eggs, and your favorite midge pattern.
