Yellowstone River August Float Trip

Floating the Yellowstone River through the Paradise Valley is wonderful during the summer.  My Dad and I recently spent two days and two nights floating most of the Paradise Valley.  Hot and windy weather made the fishing slow, but the scenery and birds were the highlight of the trip.  The water level is noticeably lower than years past and the moss was prolific.

The high water visibility and green moss made for a cool water color, but I felt for the fish who are competing for that oxygen in the warm river. I think it's about time for any angler to hang up their rod until we get some cool weather and the water temps cool down.
I outfitted my Dad's sunglasses with the ARC Endless, and brought along my favorite Ray Ban's with a trusty emerald color Suiter.  It felt so good to use the products that I make at work every day in my own back yard. Not too many people get to do that.
