Browns on the Yellowstone

Guide Ray Bernardo got his client Michael Buck into this hog of a brown on the Yellowstone recently.

Even the dogs days of summer can produce some big fish!

The Browns of Summer

The shop blog has been a little slow this summer.  Apologies.  It’s amazing how fast days can fly by with a shop full of customers!  It has been a great year for fishing, and lots and lots of happy people have been out on the local rivers enjoying the bounty of our waters.

Bozeman Art Walk This Weekend

The Art Walk returns to downtown Bozeman this Friday, August 8.  Our featured artist is Bozeman based photographer Shane Rickert.  Shane is a gifted photographer, and his work has appeared on two magazine covers, several ads, and has popped up all over the fly fishing industry.  He is also a regular contributor to the fly fishing blog Chi Wulff.  You can check out more of his work on his website here: Shane Rickert Photography.

Transition Time

"Hoppers" is the word.  Every day, shop employees get asked by at least half a dozen people when the hoppers are going to start fishing.  The best we can say is that the hoppers are out and about, but they're not quite on the rivers yet.  The Bozeman area continues to get sporadic rainstorms every few days that keep the fields filled with moisture, which is what grasshoppers like.

Bozeman Area Fly Fishing Report 24 July 2014

Yellowstone River – 7,200 cfs

A big mud plug moved through over the past few days and really dirtied things up.  Yesterday it was really clearing up, and was starting to fish well again.  Chubbies, yellow sallies, caddis and PMDs are working great.  It is still a little bit early for hoppers, but fish are starting to eat them in grassy stretches.

Recent Fishing

Fishing has been great in the Bozeman area this summer, and my dad recently came to town to enjoy some of the action!  We were able to make it out to the Gallatin and the Madison, and had a couple great days of walk-wading on both.  We were still able to find some caddis and PMD's on the water throughout the day, and there were a few golden stoneflies crawling around the banks in the morning.
