Yellowstone Park 8-12-14

Best tactic for almost all meadow streams here is presenting terrestrial patterns. The exceptions are the meadow reaches of the Madison River drainage where water temperatures are high enough to stress fish when being caught. But for Fall River Basin streams (Bechler and Fall Rivers, Boundary and Mountain Ash Creeks), Slough, Obsidian, and Soda Butte Creeks, and Lamar River, hopper, ant, and beetle patterns will bring your best chances for action. As I have mentioned in past reports, the humpy is a superb deerfly and horsefly pattern. Do not be on the stream without it!  Best still water action in the Park is, as usual this time of year, at Beula Lake where gulpers are active.  You can fish them from shore or from the float tube you backpack in. Small leech patterns will always get you chances for action there. If you do not want to do the two and a half mile walk to Beula, the two mile walk over flat ground to Riddle Lake gets you into the same action, albeit by smaller cutts. Fish the northwest corner of the lake from shore .
