Yellowstone Fishing Guides

Planning a family vacation trip this summer during the 1st week of August to Yellowstone N.P.

I'd like to do a 1/2 day guided fishing trip with my 14 year old son in either the Gardiner or W. Yellowstone areas. We are both beginners when it comes to fly-fishng, but hoping to up those skills before the trip.

I'm seeing a variety of trips; float, evening caddis float and walk-in waded trips.

Can anybody recommend guides or outfitters to try and book?

Thanks

Re: Yellowstone Fishing Guides

In the Gardiner area, check with Walter Weise at Parks Fly Shop. If you are paying for a guide, for myself, I would probably want the full day trip versus the half day. Lots of nice water, scenery, and good fishing in the Yellowstone River that time of year. Hopefully the hoppers will be back to normal this year - they were pretty scarce last summer.

In West Yellowstone, check with Craig Matthews at the Blue Ribbon Fly Shop. There might be others there, as already mentioned, that are as good, but you' d be hard pressed to find anyone that is better.

Snowpack looks very good in the Yellowstone region as of now, and unless there is some early melting, that bodes well for the water levels and fishing this coming summer. I'm sure you will enjoy your trip.

John

P.S. During the summer, I'm located on the Yellowstone River, 35 miles north of Gardiner, and fish somewhere in the area practically every day.

Re: Yellowstone Fishing Guides

I will be going the middle week in July to Yellowstone. Just read the book by Craig Matthews, plan on visiting his shop in West Yellowstone. Hoping I can find some areas to fish while there. Been tying flies for the trip. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated . Would love to fish the Madison this time as I fished the Yellowstone last time out there 10 yrs ago and the Slough. I am hoping the water is not to warm for the Madison. Have a great trip Grousetters!

Re: Yellowstone Fishing Guides

I suggest the Soda Butte Creek at the NE corner of the park. Stay upstream some distance from the confluence with the Lamar River. Try the Gardiner River just inside the north gate. Try flavs starting around 10 a.m. in the Soda Butte. (Western green drakes).

Re: Yellowstone Fishing Guides

Thanks for the input. I ended up booking a 1/2 day with Park's fly shop. Couldn't do more due to time constraints with other family members.

I got my son an initial fly casting lesson and he's been practicing. We have another class down at Cabela's this weekend. Then another in May.

Should be a fun and interesting trip.

Re: Yellowstone Fishing Guides

Fished the soda butte just a above the Lamar a few weeks ago. Don't really think u need a guide. The cutthroats hit about any dry fly u put on the water.I'd pick the soda bute over the Missouri river anyday.

Re: Yellowstone Fishing Guides

Looks like a lot of fun Grouse. We're headed to Yellowstone next year. I may have to carve out a day for a fishing trip. I believe we'll be taking a 1/2 day trip in the lake as well.

“did you get all that on camera sport?”
