A western gem and icon, fly fishing in Yellowstone National Park is a wild and historic experience full of big open skies, abundant wildlife and wonderful rivers that are found nowhere else in the world besides the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Yellowstone National Park contains hundreds of miles of accessible trout rivers containing over 200 creeks, streams and rivers as well as 45 fishable lakes with native Cutthroat Trout and other wild trout populations. Additionally, the park’s remote sections provide anglers ample opportunity to visit rivers, streams, creeks and lakes that receive little angling pressure. With the exception of one specially designated drainage, all the park’s waters are restricted to artificial lures and fly fishing only. The Madison, Firehole and a section of the Gibbon rivers are restricted to fly fishing only.

Yellowstone Fishing Report – (10.5.20)
The fishing season in Yellowstone National Park is open. As summer ends and fall progresses, Anglers will have plenty of fishing opportunities in YNP. The Lamar and Slough Creek portions of the park should continue to fish well with leftover terrestrials and the start of BWOs. The West Side of the Park, most notably the Firehole and Madison, should pick up as days and nights cool off. Be ready with Caddis and BWOs and maybe some leftover Terrestrials. Swinging soft hackles and streamers can also be very productive. Look for some big fish to start showing up in the Madison this time of year as they prep to spawn.
