Well Day 5 started out with sore legs and the desire to fish some bigger water.
We decided to hit the Lamar and then spend some more time on Soda Butte. When we arrived to the Lamar the were no other fisherman but the temperature was well below what it had been previously.
With us fishing bigger water and it being cooler, this is the first time waders were broken out. We were on the Lamar in no time and making casts to all likely spots.
Nate got into a nice Yellowstone Cutt right of the bat, but other that fishing was slow. We changed spots and began seriously covering water. The Lamar’s fish are known to move around a good bit.
After 3 hours of fishing and only one other fish we decided to go over to Soda Butte.
We arrived just in time to recieve a light drizzle which caused the Mayfly hatches to pop.
We fished hard for about 5 hours (seemed like 2) and caught numerous fish, too many to count.
We were fishing only dries.
The light rain continued off and on for the rest of the afternoon til the big storm moved in at 6.
We decide to wrap up the day and to start to get ready for our friends to arrive on the 24th.
On the way home we experienced a classic Yellowstone Jam!
