Due to varying fishing conditions, we fish many locations in Yellowstone National Park. Fly Fishing in Yellowstone National Park is a full day experience and requires a special license which must be obtained prior to arriving. Here are some of locations we frequent on a regular basis:
The Yellowstone National Park is home to crystal-clear Yellowstone Lake, located in the southeast region of the park. There are several roads along the shores of the lake for access. This lake is a less popular fishing location for many visitors because it difficult to easily catch fish from shore. The population of fish in the Yellowstone Lake has been increasing over the years due to the introduction of sustainable fishing regulations. Fish caught are usually brook trout, brown trout and rainbow trout.
The Yellowstone River is known globally to be one of the best fishing sites in the world to catch trout. Many anglers visit with the anticipation of catching a variety of fish species and are rarely disappointed. The Yellowstone River provides the perfect environment for a variety of fish species. Common fish caught in the Yellowstone River include brook trout, brown trout and rainbow trout.
The Firehole River is located within the Yellowstone National Park and starts from the Madison Lake in the western region of the park and then makes its way to the Gibbon River about 33 miles away from the Madison Lake. The river is very popular among serious fly anglers and flows through some of the great tourist attractions in Yellowstone National Park including the Upper Geyser Basin, which is home to the brilliant Old Faithful geyser. Fly fishing the Firehole River is a favorite for many.
