Re: Yellowstone Waters
I am located right on the Yellowstone River, between Gardiner and Livingston, a few miles north of the Park. Many of our river levels in this part of the country are just half of what they normally are this time of the year, and we have had a heat wave that has already put fishing restrictions on a number of well known rivers.
Our local weather forecast calls for a cooling trend starting tomorrow which might alleviate the high water temperatures for the time being, but if it were me, I would thoroughly check out the local conditions before planning any fishing trip here this summer, and be prepared to change or cancel it entirely. Oh, and don't rely entirely on what some of the local fly shops might tell you. Not all of them are totally honest in what they are telling prospective customers.
