Welcome to the Pig’s new fishing blog! We have been fishing our brains out up here in Gardiner, Montana since Yellowstone National Park’s 2014 fishing season opened on May 24th. The Firehole River has been fishing particularly well and Jane-Ashley styled it by netting this fine Brown Trout! Salmon Fly and Golden Stone nymphs are out and about, in a big way. The big Stones should be buzzing around the Firehole Canyon any day. Also, the lakes between Norris and Canyon are now thawed out and fishing nicely. We hiked into Grebe Lake, netted some beautiful Grayling. Both Grebe and Cascade Lakes provide great fishing and solitude for an eager angler. The Gardner River is on the drop and looks pretty good. Two of our guides fished it this morning and had good success throwing some “Big-Ugly” stone fly nymphs and dredging them through the deep, slow runs.
