Fall is Coming
Well, it's supposed to get back up into the 90's by the end of the week, but the days are getting noticeably shorter, nights cooler, and the water had cooled down as well. So much for all that worrying last winter about not having enough water. It snowed in the mountains the night before last and I wore waders yesterday.
Fished the lower Yellowstone the last two days. Yesterday was windier than hell but still managed some fish on nymphs and hoppers. Today was better nymphing than hopper fishing for whatever reason. Starting to see some more bugs out again, the banks are full of midnight stone shucks, saw some PMD's today and a few fish were eating spinners mid-day. A lot of the grass is dying off as well so hopefully those weeds will be gone in a few weeks.
Not sure what the plan will be tomorrow, but the forecast is great and the Madison should be predictably crappy.
