Yellowstone River - Livingston

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Hopper fishing has been very good lately. Smaller attractor dries and ants trailed behind smaller hoppers have also been working. Nymph droppers have been getting fish too, but the whitefish are really eating the nymphs. Deeper nymph rigs with stonefly, mayfly and caddis patterns will usually get some when the dry rigs aren't working. A cool weekend forecast should help out the streamer fishing and maybe get some B.W.O. hatches going.

Seven-day forecast 

Water clarity is good right now and should stay clear barring anymore heavy rain showers the next few days. The forecast is calling for snow in the mountains this weekend. That will certainly help the hatches and streamer fishing.
