Call today...  the fishing has been outstanding this spring!
Fly fishing the Yellowstone River is truly an experience you'll never forget.  The Yellowstone is the largest freestone river in the country, meaning you can float and fish it's 120 some miles of Blue Ribbon trout water without encountering a damn.  It's headwaters are formed from the icy runoff of Yellowstone National Park, and head down slope through the unbelievable Paradise Valley where the majority of fly fishing on the Yellowstone occurs.  You'll be hard pressed to find a more beautiful setting to cast a fly.  With the Beartooth Mountains towering on one side of the river, and lush rolling hills and open farmland on to the West, it's no secret why it's called "Paradise Valley".  

We fish the river from top to bottom, depending on what's going on with the bugs.  You'll find a great Caddis hatch in May (which can sometimes be like a snowstorm of caddis), excellent hopper fishing in late summer, and good streamer fishing mixed throughout, especially in the fall.  The Yellowstone River holds gorgeous native cutthroats, browns, and rainbows, offering a nice mix of fish.  And of course, there's always your resident whitefish to save the day if things get tough.  Whitey's are pretty much always eager to gulp down some nymphs if need be.
The Yellowstone River has been great this season, the hopper action has been heating up in recent weeks!
