Fly Fishing in Yellowstone National Park is an unique experience like no other in the world. Created as the United States’ first national park in 1872, Yellowstone National Park encompasses 2.2 million acres that spans over 3 states (Wyoming, Montana and Idaho). The national park contains over 2600 miles of streams. Simply put, Yellowstone National Park offers one of the largest concentrations of trout streams and lakes in the world; some areas are even restricted to fly fishing and catch and release only. Yellowstone is a massive area and is consistently listed on every anglers bucket list and places to fly fish before they die. The fly fishing opportunities are diverse and unlimited.
Angling opportunities in Yellowstone National Park are not suited for day trip experiences. For 2021, WorldCast Anglers has created Yellowstone guided packages for our customers to experience fly fishing in Yellowstone National Park. Complete with lodging to minimize your time driving and maximize your time on the water. Anglers will target wild rainbow trout and brown trout surrounded by and immersed in the geysers and geo-thermally rich ecosystem of the Firehole, Madison and Gibbon Rivers. Staying in the park eliminates the need to rush home or beat the traffic.
Anglers will stay at the famous Old Faithful Snow Lodge. Completed in 1999, the Snow Lodge is the newest of the park’s full service hotels, and has been recognized with the Cody Award for Western Design and Travel and Leisure’s Inn of the Month. Located in the heart of the Firehole Basin, which is one of the greatest geyser basins in the world, you are steps away from the Old Faithful Geyser as well as some of the best fishing opportunities on the Firehole river. A short drive opens up a world of fly fishing opportunities on Madison and Gibbon rivers, Yellowstone Lake and other Yellowstone National Park waterways.
Spring time in Yellowstone National Park is a special time of year. Summer crowds haven’t yet arrived and the park is full of life. The warm waters of the Firehole River kickstart the fly fishing season with hatches of Baetis, Caddis and PMDs on warm days. Salmonflies start buzzing around the Firehole canyon while wildlife tends to their young born just weeks before. Fall time offers a more relaxed pace of life. Cooler days and nights offer reprieve from the summer heat while the leaves change and crowds dissipate. The trout of Yellowstone National Park prepare for the winter ahead feeding in aggressive fashion on dry flies, nymphs and streamers. Simply put, these are our two favorite seasons in Yellowstone.
Our Yellowstone National Park guided packages include 2 nights lodging and 2.5 days guided fishing based on double occupancy and two anglers per guide. These trips are complete with all inclusion and exclusions of WCA’s guided experiences. Yellowstone is a fly fishing paradise. Nowhere in the world are there so many public rivers, lakes and streams found in such a small area. Join WorldCast Anglers in Yellowstone National Park this coming fly fishing season!
