If you fish the northeast corner of the park, expect company because so many easy to approach streams within the park are fishing slowly. There are plenty of anglers on the Lamar River in the meadows both above and below the cascades, on Soda Butte Creek, and on lower Slough Creek. We traveled through this area on Thursday, and we saw the Lamar discolored, likely because of thundershower related erosion in its upper drainage. Some cars were parked at the Trout Lake trail head. This time of year fishing there can be tough because of an algae bloom, so a speckled dun emerger pattern presented under an indicator is a good strategy if fish are rising.
Remember what we suggested a few days ago about fastest fishing in the Park? That still applies to Beula and Riddle Lakes!
