An interesting day today on the lower Yellowstone that ended up being a good day when it was all said and done. Started off throwing streamers and moved/caught several fish the first couple of miles. Mostly Rainbows, but they were really moving out of fast water to hammer big, articulated, light colored junk, stripped fast. Had a big carp eat an enormous streamer, but he just wasn't there when the guy pulled to set. Too bad as it was all well executed. Ended up dead-drifting buggers and lightning bugs after lunch and we did pretty well. Not much love on hoppers today, but it was cloudy and rainy off and on.
