So…all float trips were a success. John and Kevin caught 25-30 fish on the upper section of the Yellowstone. Nick and Patrick boated around 50-60 through the Yankee Jim Canyon section, with the biggest being an 18″ brown. All thoroughly enjoyed the change of pace and the beautiful scenery of Paradise Valley. Jeff, Spiros, and Aaron tried their hand at Lamar and then Soda Butte but only a couple quality fish were caught. Bob and Steve worked over a little brookie stream and handed out sore lips.
My Dad, my son Bayden, and I went to the upper Gardiner to see how it was fishing.
It started off slow but pick up a good bit in the afternoon.
Bayden landed 5 brookies…one completely on his own.
What perfecting is was…because he is flying home tomorrow.
Tune in tomorrow for the results for day 2 of the float trips and a return to 2nd meadow.
