The much anticipated day has arrived. Everyone from out group was schedule to take a float trip on the Yellowstone today. Everyone had their different agendas. Jason and Matt were heading north trying to get in to some bigger fish. Brett and Jim were chasing numbers, and Seth and Jeff were floating the Yankee Jim Section. We met the guides at Park’s Fly Shop, got license squared away, and off they went.
I was playing shuttle, and was going to get a little fishing in for myself.
While the crew was gone, Jeff and his wife Susan, where going to take a nice longer hike.
I decided to hit my favorite little brookie stream, because it provided some cover from the 20mph winds.

SHHHHHH! Aaron and Spiros! It is an amazing stream with an outstanding number of fish.
Unbelievable numbers of brookies are willing to pounce on your less than perfect drift.
10-15 fish can be pulled out of some of the nicer holes.
I love this stream because it reminds me of our rivers ( western creeks) back home.
Roll casting and high sticking are the name of the game.
The difference is, this creek can produce hundred fish days and the fish are larger on the average. This time of year in Yellowstone the brookies are getting ready to do their thing and they are all dressed up in the Sunday’s best.
After handing out several sore lips, and picking up Jeff and Susan, we headed back to the cabin to find out the results of the float trips. Everyone arrived and told us great days on the water. Others had to deal with the wind a bit more, but all got into some nice fish.
After burgers and brats with Wally and Wilson, two of the guides at Parks’ Fly Shop, we were treated to some of Jeff and Seth Rhineharts spectacular music. Want to hear some of Seth’s music with his band Hazel Creek? Check it outhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKz2iwY2Oq4&feature=related (Seth is in the hat and yellow shirt).
The group is splitting up tomorrow. Jason and Matt are going to try their hand at Hellroaring Creek. Jim, Seth, and Jeff are going to chase brookies. Jeff C is taking Susan back to the airport, and Brett and myself are heading down river to try to get into some piggies! We’ll see. Tight lines (I hope)!!!!!!
