    Also, purple instead of orange thread and hackle can work like magic.

    Despite our numbers around here being technically "lower" than they were last year, this winter just has a different and better feel to it. Several long dry patches intercut with periods of a lot of...

    I've never been to Agate Creek, but the river in the lower Grand Canyon there is straightforward. Just hope you don't get any rain on the day you're there, because it blows fast and hard (though it...

  5. My most-recent YNP and Montana fly fishing newsletter

    I am more than lax about putting these out, but I hope to get better now that I've faced reality and accepted putting out one a month is the best I can do. All include some kind of "fly of the month"...

    Yeah, but Doug, if you came back you'd be lower on the totem pole than WILSON! Could you stand it?

    Hackle stackers are cool, but I have seen little or no difference between them and a standard hackle that's trimmed flush underneath, and the latter is MUCH easier to tie, particularly if you are...

    A pattern called a Woody has worked for me in the smaller lakes in YNP and the private ranch ponds. Real easy the way I do it:

    Hook: #16 1xl nymph (Dai-Riki #060).
    Thread: 8/0 black.
    Tail: lemon...

    Wherever you fish, you need to pay attention to the dominant etiquette. Nothing is worse than having somebody start fishing right across from me somewhere like the Gardner River, where if I see...

    These won't work in #12-14 for fall-run brown trout in Yellowstone Park, certainly not if you add some x-fine Centipede Legs. Please send all you have to me for proper disposal over the next seven...

    They were almost certainly taking it as a Hecuba aka Drake Mackeral. They're hatching sporadically on all area freestones and that section of the Madison is "close enough" to being a freestone that I...

    Weather has been crazy this summer. Our longest run of hot weather was the last week of June through July 4. No more than a couple days in a row over 90 since then. Today started off in the 40s and...

    Yellowstone Area Trip Reports

    So I'm hopefully going to get after myself and actually post trip reports more regularly (that is to say, ever) on my blog. I have a hard time keeping up with Parks' Fly Shop's fishing reports in the...

    The vast majority of the Yellowstone area is fine (except for mud due to rain) for the time being. No air temps out of the 80s in the 14-day forecast, and most in the low 80s or high 70s. The waters...

    Thanks gents. Got a good tip to start the year. Hopefully now it'll cool off a bit (not looking good on that...).

    Here are some details that I find telling, from the Montana FWP EIS:

    --33 miles of stream involved
    --Yellowstone cutthroat genetics are 99.5% pure (.1% rainbow trout, .4% westslope cutthroat)...

    If you were upstream of the canyon, that's the section that will be wiped out. I bet you have never caught more than 1-2 brookies there even on days when you catch thirty or forty fish, have you?

    The comment period is open for a month. I doubt they'll reply to my comments or say anything about what they hear before that.

    This is a big change from Grayling Creek. That one was almost...

    An additional note I didn't include in my comments but should have: there are numerous other examples of streams in Yellowstone featuring abundant brook trout populations that fail to influence areas...

    I haven't found this to be true at all. I have sold a story to all of the national magazines except Fly Fisherman, and I made my first sale to each based solely on a single query letter.

    Well, never mind. At least for a couple days. It rained all night, hard, and the Yellowstone blew again overnight. I do suspect it'll come back one more time before it stays muddy until mid-June,...
