As you can see from the photo, we still have snow on the ground in downtown Livingston, MT and it is snowing as I write. Current snow pack for the Yellowstone River drainage is sitting at 75% of normal as of Feb. 4, 2010. Not to worry though, since the last couple of springs have been very wet. Forecast is calling for some more snow in the coming weeks with mild temps – daytime highs in the mid 20′s -mid 30′s.
Fishing should start to pick up on the Yellowstone and surrounding rivers towards the end of February with the fish eating midges, both dries and nymphs. Great time of year to be fishing… hungry fish and very few fisherman. So get out there if you can!
