Groundhog day today on the Yellowstone with Rainbows eating rubbelegs with reckless abandon. Some hopper love, but not compared to the stone bite. The banks are littered with shucks right now so they must be wanting to eat it easy rather than looking up into the sun. It will be a weedy mess very very soon, so get out there soon if you want to catch a lot of fish on nymphs, hopper fishing will come soon enough.
The rig I have been fishing is very simple, 5 foot leader, 3x, Pats Rubberleg size 8 in brown or midnight stone with a soft hackle lightning bug dropper. No spilt shot and an indicator about 4' from the first fly.
