Streams are really shaping up now. Firehole River has PMDs, BWOs , damselflies, white millers and other caddis. Madison River’s PMD emergence is on-going great guns with some golden stones also attracting trout. Fourth of July weekend will be a great time to enjoy the evening brown drake hatches on the Gibbon River and Duck Creek. Slough brown and green drakes should be starting to emerge, and water is dropping. Fall River Basin streams are high but clear. Yellow sallys are emerging with PMDs due to start any time. Bring your DEET if you want to keep your blood supply at the full level! The same applies if you walk into Lewis River channel where streamers are catching big browns. Juvenile macks and big browns are also hitting streamers on Shoshone and Lewis lakes. Big’macks are taking them close to shore on Yellowstone Lake.
Ashton-Flagg Ranch road is entirely open, so Beula Lake and Fall River in Yellowstone Park are accessible.
