Home to famous fly fishing waters like the Firehole, Madison, and the Yellowstone River, Yellowstone Park boast some of the region’s best fly fishing. Anglers seeking solitude can venture off the beaten path—something like over 90% of Yellowstone Park’s visitors never leave the road!

 

The Park’s fishing season doesn’t open until late May, but it’s worth the wait. The Firehole, Gibbon, and Madison Rivers all fish well from opening day well into July. After July our focus is on the waters in the northeast corner of the Park. Famous rivers like the Lamar, Slough Creek, Soda Butte Creek, and the Black Canyon of the Yellowstone.

               

Many of our anglers stay at Old Faithful lodge and enjoy fly fishing near there. We also have clients stay in Gardiner for fly fishing adventures in the northern part of Yellowstone National Park. Big Sky, our home, is also a good place to base.

               

We offer walk-wade fly fishing trips into Yellowstone and we feel our guides are some of the most knowledgeable and hard-working guides in the Park.
