You could say this is the “browns and BWO with some ‘bows thrown in” season. Browns are beginning their fall migration in such as the Lewis , Madison, Gibbon, and Yellowstone rivers and Duck Creek. Runs in the Gardner and Snake rivers will come a bit later. Rainbows are running up the Madison River from Hebgen Lake and are actively rising to BWOs in the Firehole River. Meadow streams still offer fishing with terrestrial patterns. Elk are bugling, geese are honking, wolves are howling, and remaining coyotes are yipping. Those noises sure beat the motorized variety. On top of all this crowds are down on most waters. So it is a great time to be fishing in the Park.
