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.

3670 CFS @ Corwin - Thanks to the recent cooler temperatures, the Yellowstone is currently on the drop and clearing. As things warm up this week, keep your eyes peeled for one last-gasp emergence of Mother's Day caddis. Target the softer water along the banks when searching for heads. Otherwise, soft hackles and sculpin-style streamers can bring some fish to the net.

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.
