Catching the Stone

Nathaniel, Charles and I spent another day getting familiar with the Yellowstone. We floated from Point of Rocks--a little up-stream from where I had been with John and the boys a few days earlier. Having some confidence in what we were doing a couple days prior, we started off chucking streamers--nothing for the first hour and a half. We even rigged up a nymphing rod and actually tried to catch a whitefish and again, nothing.

Somewhere around noon or so, we turned a bend and Charles chucked his big ugly into an eddy and pulled a really nice cutty. We noticed some fish rising in another eddy and pulled over and caught few on dries. From that point on, fishing got pretty sick for a while. We caught a bunch of cutties, a few rainbows and some REALLY good browns...only two whities.

As the sun went down, the fishing slowed down as well. We had just about every kind of weather with a hail storm coming through, wind, snow, and even some sun. We got fish on BWO's, midges, big streamers and little buggers. It was a full day and a lot of fun. The Stone is getting muddy but if it's on the drop, it's definitely worth checking out.

Keep 'em where they live...
