Yellowstone Park 7-9-13

Watching Fall River flow gauges and regional weather reports convinced me that it was time to head to Fall River Basin yesterday for some dry fly fishing.  I could not have timed it better as the river in Bechler Meadows was in perfect shape for such fishing, with a sky filled with cumulus clouds, higher than normal relative humidity, and only a slight breeze. PMDs began emerging (only a few green drakes, however) about lunch time and kept going until high winds put them down just after 4PM.  Before that fish responded with gusto.  I was a bit  “out of style” by using a #14 blond humpy, but the fish did not care.  More proof that it is not so much the particular fly used, but how it is presented.  Good dry fly fishing should remain in all Fall River Basin streams for several days now, given partly cloudy and relatively humid conditions prevailing.  Look for the same on similar Park waters including Slough Creek, Lamar River, meadow reaches of the Lewis and Gibbon Rivers, Pelican Creek, and Duck Creek. But avoid the bright, cloudless, and dry days for best fishing success on such waters.
