|April 18th, 2011 - "spring" fishing on the Yellowstone River.|
From a fishing standpoint spring is a welcome season, albeit a brief one. Some of my favorite rivers are already in the throes of runoff - and the abundant mountain snowpack will soon inundate every river in the state. But for now - and perhaps for a couple of more weeks - the fishing is good. The days are growing longer, insects are hatching, and the trout are actively feeding.
