Yellowstone Creek, Utah Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
Afternoon midge hatches are the best bet for a hatch. Look for fish hiding behind structure and in deeper holes with low flows. Try a Zebra Midge, Princess Nymph, Egg Pattern, Lightening Bug, Copper John, or Prince Nymph when fish aren't looking up. Try a Adams or parachute midge when fish are rising. Try a white streamer or San Juan worm when water is deep.

Yellowstone Creek Description

A spectacular little mountain stream, the Yellowstone, drains from the highest of Utah's peaks and is home to good populations of native cutthroats and wild brook trout, browns, and rainbows.

Techniques & Tips

Fishing prospecting nymph patterns such as princess nymphs, frenchies, and lightening bugs is proving most effective. Streamers such as woolly buggers, leeches, and zonkers through deeper runs and bends is also effective. In the evening parachute midges and parachute adams patterns are effective. In the afternoon try parachute midges and Griffith's gnats.
