1870 CFS @ Corwin - The Yellowstone River has a bit of color in it this morning but the flows have only risen a small amount. The fishing has been decent over there the last few days. If or when the weather straightens out, look for the fishing to pick up as well. Baetis and midges are around in good numbers with fish found rising in the foam pockets and back-eddies along the banks, especially on cloudy days. As the weather starts to warm up, look for the river to keep rising. Nymph fishing has been most productive and streamer fishing has been picking up as well.

4120 CFS @ Corwin - There are Caddis on the Yellowstone River but it is pretty off color and rising at the moment. Fish have been looking up in the softer water along the edges, but this may not last long if the river continues to rise with the warm weather. If you head over, concentrate on the back eddies and pockets and watch for floating debris.

5470 CFS @ Corwin - The Yellowstone River has almost tripled in size over the past 3 days. It is pretty dirty at the moment but could come back into shape with some cooler weather this weekend. If that happens and things warm up again, we could start to see some caddis but it might be a short window to fish them.

1360 CFS @ Corwin - The Yellowstone River has been fishing great over the past week or so. Wind has been the biggest factor keeping people off the water, but if you can find the right day, the fishing has been worth it. Nymphing has been the best bet with stonefly patterns and small midge or baetis droppers. The fish seem to be concentrated in the slower deeper runs and back eddies. Also, look for fish rising in the foam of those back eddies. Streamer fishing has also been picking up.
