Yellowstone Park’s fishing season opens today, so it is time to pass on some information on fishing there this time of year. The Firehole River will be the stream drawing the most attention for a while with legendary BWO and caddis activity (Don’t overlook presenting dragonfly and damselfly nymph patterns on slower reaches). Gibbon River, Duck and Cougar creeks are in fishing condition. The Madison River will host a few Hebgen Lake rainbows heading home, but better fishing days there are around the corner. The Ashton-Flagg Road will not open until the end of June, so those great fisheries east of Calf Creek Hill along the Park’s south boundary are not accessible until then. You can walk into Bechler Meadows and even fish some of Fall River Meadows, but high water will limit you big time. The best days fishing in the Park are ahead, and we will keep you well informed of their arrival and progress on this web site.
