Fishing Reports | Yellowstone Park


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.

Summertime – Yellowstone Fishing Report

Yellowstone Fishing Report – (8.8.20)

The fishing season in Yellowstone National Park is now open. Anglers should look to the Yellowstone River as well as the Lamar and Slough Creek portions of the park for the best fishing and as summer progresses. Expect PMDs, Caddis, Yellow Sallies and left over Golden Stones. The West Side of the Park, most notably the Firehole and Madison, should only be fished during cooler mornings and evenings as water temps are on the warmer side. Swinging soft hackles can also be very productive but please don’t stress trout with warmer water temps of mid-summer.
