Yellowstone - September 2010

This year I was accompanied by Boyd and Kory for a later then normal fly fishing trip to Yellowstone.   September this year was hotter than normal, the rivers were running low and slow.  That killed off most of the big holes, gravel, sand bars we fish.

We ended up fly fishing the Yellowstone River most of the trip, we hiked in to a few other spots to try our success.  The smaller rivers and low water levels produce fewer fish then were use too.  The NP website had major bear warnings for the areas we fish.  We had no problems with the bears this year.  Enjoy the photo tour.
