Overall, fishing was a little slower than years past as we stubbornly persisted to throw terrestrials whether the trout wanted to eat them or not. Plenty of fish were still caught, but definitely not as fast paced as years past. Towards the end of the week when the rain and snow set in, we switched over to mainly streamers and went hog hunting. Caught some nice sized fished, but the 24'+ lake runs eluded us this year.
We also took a day mid week that looked like it was going to be overcast to chase big fish on the Madison with my friend Alice Owsley from Riverside Anglers. We managed a few nice fish, but the skies cleared and the sun came out, and kind of killed our monster hunt. If anyone is looking for a trip down the Madison, or in the park, I highly recommend you contact Alice. She lives and breathes fishing in the Yellowstone area.
As always, below are a few photos. Hope you enjoy!
