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.

The fishing season in Yellowstone National Park is now open. Anglers should look to the West Side of the Park, most notably the Firehole and Madison. Look for PMDs, BWOs and Caddis to be the vast majority of the hatches. Swinging soft hackles can also be very productive. The West Thumb has been fishing well around creek mouths. Look for full sinking lines and leeches to do the trick.
