Yellowstone National Park Excursion

1-2 Guests • Lodge • Public • Guided


Enjoy fishing 2.5 days fishing and 2 nights lodging in the heartland of America’s First National Park! Fish the famous Firehole, Yellowstone and Gibbon backcountry rivers with one of our experienced guides.

Angling opportunities in Yellowstone National Park are not suited for day trip experiences, so trips are 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.

Fishing in Yellowstone

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.


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.

Rules & Guidelines


We highly recommend travel insurance to ensure that you are covered in case of unavoidable last-minute circumstances, such as a delayed flight.

Other expenses

In addition to the price of the trip, you will be responsible for purchasing your own fishing license (about $12.75/$14.00 for a non-resident daily), a small selection of flies (8-15) selected for use by the guide for the day, and a gratuity for the guide if you do so choose at the end of the day.

What to wear

The weather in greater Yellowstone ecosystem consists of dry summer heat with occasional rainy days. Even though it may look sunny in the morning, weather moves quickly out here and it is always important to bring raingear in case of the occasional summer shower passing through. We suggest wearing shoes which you don’t mind getting wet (i.e. sandals, old sneakers, Crocs etc. ) as there will be times when you may need to get your feet wet getting in and out of the boat. Additionally, there will be times in the summer where wet wading, in water no deeper than mid calf, will be the best way to put both anglers on fish and it would be smart to have shoes which you don’t mind getting wet. The water temperatures in the summer are cool, but not too cold on the feet.

A hat and sunscreen are necessary for protection from the bright sun and the reflection off the water.

Sunglasses are an important piece of safety gear for protecting your eyes from swinging flies. Polarized glasses are the best choice as they cut down on the glare coming off the water and can help you spot fish.

In the late spring and early fall months, it is advisable to bring along a sweater and jacket for the cooler mornings and evenings. Also in these months it is advisable to bring waders for wading and for getting in and out of the boat.
