The winter blues just haven’t quite set in with us yet. It could be because we’ve had such mild weather. Although our snowpack is a little low, we’re still optimistic for some precip.
A big thanks to all of you who’ve sent your license applications back in a timely manner. As a reminder, the March 15th Deadline can sneak up pretty fast. We’ve still got a few openings available for both rifle and archery. We’ll be heading off to Reno for the RMEF convention in about a week. It will be great to catch up with a lot of old pals and see what’s new in the industry.
We’ve been on the river a bit. While there are still a few ice-bergs along the banks, fish are feeding well. We’ve been picking up some good ones on Girdle bugs, Brassies, Copper Johns and some other regulation nymph patterns. If the snowfall continues to be limited, we’ll likely have a great Mother’s Day Caddis Hatch and the river will fish well early on. Remember, last season we had a late run off, so the Yellowstone didn’t fish well until mid-July! We’re looking forward to several spring floats. Many clients have already taken advantage of our discounts.
As always, thanks for reading, thanks for your comments-

NEW EMAIL NEWSLETTER-CABIN FEVER CURES
I just completed our recent email newsletter, hopefully you enjoyed it and found it useful. I hate the way the world seems to be getting to be a colder and less personable place, and “email newsletters” certainly isn’t my idea of a personal touch, it’s just my effort to stay afloat. With that said, when you surf around our site, make a few calls, you’ll soon come to realize that your speaking with pretty much all departments, all chief bottle washers. Keep the comments and suggestions coming, we listen! Make sure you sign up on the website for the newsletter. I also promise your identity won’t be stolen and I won’t fill your email with junk.
WHAT’S NEW AT DOME MOUNTAIN RANCH?
Even though winter is considered our slow season, we haven’t personally slowed down, as a matter of fact, a lot of big things have been happening. Our hunting season was a good one. Each seems to get better as we learn more and more. If you’ve been thinking about an elk hunt, give me a call, it’s that time of year to book with the deadline coming in mid-March. This blog isn’t just about hunting either, there’s some good news for the fly fishing summer cients as well!
SUMMER TO COME-SPRING SPECIALS-YELLOWSTONE PARK GUIDED FLY FISHING
If you’ve missed it, we’re offering some great spring specials. Both the River View and Rising Rainbow cabins are available at great rates through June. April through June offer great weather and some potential for good fishing, however since the Yellowstone experiences high water usually beginning around the first of June, if fly fishing is your focus, it’s best to try the prime time as follows:
APRIL-MAY: Contrary to popular belief, we’re not under 3 feet of snow, matter of fact, the weather can be fairly mild during this time, yet as always, unpredictable. April is fairly safe and free of run off. The Yellowstone is most well known for the “Mother’s Day Caddis” hatch.
JUNE: As the days grow longer and warmer the high mountain snows begin to melt, which swells many of our local waters making the fishing tough, but the rafting awesome.
JULY-SEPTEMBER: This is prime time. The famous Salmon Fly Hatch shows up near the ranch around the first of July and the river and fish seem to come alive as they feast on these huge stoneflies.
SEPTEMBER-DECEMBER: This is hunting season, but the fishing is still pretty good too.
