Fly Fishing Yellowstone National Park

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.

Guided Yellowstone Fly Fishing Packages

Angling opportunities in Yellowstone National Park are not suited for day trip experiences. Continuing in 2023, 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 native cutthroats and 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 or idyllic Lamar River Valley. Staying in or near the park eliminates the need to rush home or beat the traffic.

Centrally Located

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. For our summer packages, anglers will stay in Silver Gate, MT. Located less than 1 mile from the Northeast Entrance, Silver Gate is central base and the ultimate convenience for anglers looking to fish the Lamar River Valley as well as Slough Creek and its famous tributaries.

Different Fishing Seasons in Yellowstone

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. During the summer time, anglers start to look towards the Lamar River Valley. Summer time also brings out the Terrestrials! Hoppers, Ants and Beetles make their presence known and the fish takes notice. 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.
