Crowds are beginning to thin making for faster travel to good fishing locations. The Firehole River is cooling to the point that fishing is improving with BWO emergences and terrestrial insects ( and soft hackled patterns) making patterns for them the best choices.  Most large cutthroat in the Yellowstone River above LeHardy Rapids are back in the lake.  Browns and ‘bows have begun their upstream migrations from Hebgen Lake.  Meadow reaches along so many streams offer fish responding to AM trico and daytime terrestrial insect activity. Stealth is required for successful fishing on all these. Best still water fishing is at Beula Lake  (damselfly nymphs, small leech, cinnamon caddis, and speckled dun life cycle patterns) off the Ashton-Flagg Road, presenting streamer patterns along Lewis Lake shoreline, or if you are able, through packing a flotation device into Shoshone Lake to fish scud and leach patterns around submerged weed beds.
