Hopper Times

Another day on the Yellowstone, this time without the wind. Fish are still hungry, hanging out on the inside seams and in the skinny water. They were just as happy to eat buggers or stoneflies today, and very happy to eat hoppers.

Being a Saturday, I had to drive around a little bit this morning to try to find an access site without a pile of boats on it. Found one and had it all to ourselves for the most part, just one other driftboat and the guys was fishing by himself just floating down the river. I think the biggest thing right now is just to not be behind a bunch of boats as the fish are sitting where they should be and it's pretty easy to see where that is so if you're bugs are the 10 th ones they see, they're probably gonna be a little hesitant to eat.

Gonna go try the Lower Madison tomorrow as I don't think anyone has been really fihsing it the last couple of weeks.
