A gorgeous sunset at Rainbow Point. We launched from the Rainbow Point boat launch.
These fish fought very well and often jumped several times
We fished in mid June and it was incredibly cold most of the time. Started with snow on a couple of mornings. But had plenty of sunshine as well. Of course it was windy most of the days in the afternoon.
The majority of the fish caught were Rainbows and many with good size. 14-17 inches most common with a few bigger ones. We also caught a few similar sized Browns. The early mornings were slow, I think due to the cold weather, and picked up throughout the day. We had a couple of really incredible periods (A few hours on a couple of different days) of fishing where we caught fish every cast and did not have to wait long between fish.
We used this Mayfly nymph (Purchased from fly shop in West Yellowstone) and a size 14-16 red snow cone Chironomid most of the time under an indicator 8-15 feet usually on a drop off. But we also used these same flies without a strike indicator and did very well just slow pulling it. We caught several fish on olive and black Buggers as well. We got into a little dry fly action in the afternoons for a very short window (Midge and Mayfly hatch) in a calm bay using a Griffiths Gnat and an Adams
