Yellowstone National Park is open to Fishing!

Yellowstone Park opened this past weekend for the season and is a great option to fish right now. The western half of the park, namely the Firehole River, the Gibbon, and the Madison River, is where you will want to focus your fly fishing efforts. The rivers are high and clear so look to getting your flies deeper along cut banks and keep your eyes peeled for rising fish taking Caddisflies and PMD Mayflies. This is a great time of the year to get out and explore the park; lighter crowds and active wildlife can make for special days.

And don't forget, de-barb your hooks and use non-lead split shot!

Recommended Flies:
Elk-hair Caddis sz 14-18
Copper Haze sz 14-18
Purple Haze Cripple sz 14-16
Royal Trude sz 14-16
Copper John Soft Hackle sz 14-16
Pheasant Tail sz 14-18
Prince Nymph sz 12-18

Weather:
Looking forward expect warm temps with some afternoon showers. Don't forget sunblock or a rain coat!

Feel free to stop by the shop anytime or give a call 406-333-4401 for any other information.

The Park is currently closing to fishing.  It re-opens the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend.  Although closed to angling, the sight seeing can be fantastic this time of year.  Bears are starting to come out of hibernation and can be seen in good numbers in the spring.  That, along with all of the other wildlife in the park can make for a great day.  You can end the day with a soak in the Boiling River on your way out of the Park.  Better than being inside...
