Opening up at the end of the month, stop into the shop to pick up your park fishing license. Most of the traffic will be towards the west side on the madison, firehole and Gibbon, as those will probably be clear compared to the North East water in the Lamar area. My favorite way to fish the Firehole? A swung soft hackle on a light rod! Stop into the shop for more info.

About another month or so till we are fishing in the Park. Lots of snow should make for a great season!

The park has been getting their fair share of snowpack, and we are all excited to get back in there once it opens up to fishing later in the Spring! Stay tuned.

Still closed for another few months. Lets hope it keeps snowing up there to keep our rivers fully charged all summer long.

See ya next year! It was a great Fall season throughout the Park, with many nice healthy wild fish brought to hand.

Pick your spot wisely if you want solitude. Certain stretches are pretty crowded right now, but getting out a bit earlier or walking away from the road a bit will get you into more fish and less people. Brown trout should start to run up the Madison out of the Hebgen. Swing soft hackles on the Firehole or the Gibbon, or perhaps explore the much less crowded North East corner of the park before it closes.

Fishing really well, in some areas, not so great in others.  The entire west side is pretty warm; it's probably better to leave the Madison, Firehold, and Gibbon rivers alone for now. 

 

However, everything in the Northern part of the Park should be doing really well!  Definitely consider taking a trip to Slough Creek, Soda Butte Creek, or the Lamar River.  The Gardner River could be a good option too.

 

Flies: small terrestrials (ants, beetles, small hoppers), caddis, stimulators, flashy nymphs
