Yellowstone River - Livingston

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Like a lot of the rivers around, the Yellowstone has had some clarity issues as of late. The river is mostly green with some brown from some of the valley creeks. Nymphing has been all right with rubberlegs and beadheads. There are Baetis and midgesout, sometimes in good numbers, but unless you hit the magical combination of low wind and cloudy weather the dry fly opportunities will be slim. While not producing numbers, streamers have been producing some nice fish. Try black, olive and yellow on a slow deep strip.

Seven-day forecast 

Keep an eye on the forecast and choose the best combo or wind and clouds.
