Went out on 8/1 and caught a couple of cats on the west bank. Trolled the area north of the dam and had a couple of hits, but nothing stayed on. Left when the wind picked up.
Anyone catching any fish?
Catfish even quit biting.
Yes there are muskies. Low population. Nothing too big.
Is there a population of muskies in Yellowstone?

Got a couple of bass and a golden shiner.
Might as well quit the boat in.
Jbird, yes we all realize that your time is more valuable than everyone else's, but please dont block a busy boat launch. Just have your son idle the boat around as you get your trailer. Get in line, back your trailer into the water when it is your turn and load up.

Fished the Stone from 8-12

Made it to the lake around 9am. Was nice and sunny but the wind was blowing very well. We only caught 2 fish. My son caught a 2.94 pound large mouth and I caught about a 7 inch golden eye shiner. We attempted to leave around 2:30pm. We waited about 20 minutes to get a chance to get out boat out of the water. As I was going to get the truck and trailer someone on a boat said to my son that we were in his way and we should have waited for everyone else to put their boats in before we took ours out. Sorry, but I'm not waiting for everyone else to do that when they take 10-20 minutes to launch a boat. I had my boat on the trailer in about 3 minutes and off the ramp, out of the way. Apparently there is no social distancing as we saw a boat that had 6 people in it that you could tell probably didn't all live together (boyfriend/girlfriend). The boat ramp was BUSY! The water was cloudy with low visibility. We mailed fish but we're not getting bites fishing with a bobber. Caught the bass with a tube jig about 20 minutes after we got on the water. Probably won't be back to this lake any time soon.
We camped at the state park last year and I got a nice 18" walleye by the dam. Of course the small bluegills also.
Thanks for the info. I was on the DNR website and couldn't find information on park fees. We've been to Blackhawk and Governor Dodge in the past couple of years. Never been to Yellowstone. A friend of mine said his son had been catching crappies and bluegill and thought I would give it a try since in not catching much on my home lakes. I'm about 1 1/2 hour drive to get there. Hopefully the boat traffic won't be too much.
