Day One!

We are happy to pick you up at your place of lodging anywhere in Yellowstone National Park, Jackson WY, West Yellowstone MT, and Gardiner MT.  Clients staying in Cody WY will meet us at Fishing Bridge.  Due to the vastness of Yellowstone National Park your geographical location will play a large roll in which waters we choose to fish.  We try to minimize drive time as much as possible as we access great water within a reasonable distance.

Please feel free to bring any equipment that you like but we will have anything you will need.  Fly selection will also be handled by your guide, allowing us to depart for our chosen waters shortly after making our introductions.

Upon arrival at our fishing destination we generally go over some basic safety and gear protocols, as well as a remedial skills instruction session if needed.  After reviewing some basic fly fishing theory we are off and fishing!

Most of Yellowstone National Park’s waters lend themselves well to wade fishing technigues.   We will be fishing the native Yellowstone Cutthroat, Fine Spotted Snake River Cutthroat, Rainbow Trout, Brown  Trout, and the occasional Lake Trout that meanders out of Yellowstone Lake.   Our professional guides will share their knowledge of these local waters, wildlife, flora, history, and geology as well.

We generally spend 3.5-4 hours on the river before heading back in.  A really great morning spent fishing in  the world’s first National Park.
