Summer Yellowstone Adventure! Fly Fishing Top Waters From The Madison, Yellowstone, Gallatin and Slough Creek

It's Time To Get The Boys Together

It's been a few too many years since I've been able to get back to my favorite stomping grounds of Yellowstone. My Pals were itching to find another local spot to hit this late Summer and when it came to me early in the's been close to 20 years since I called YNP home; no other choice was a possibility!

*This week FFA will be highlighting our trip each day with a new Location, feel free to checkout our posts each day on locations visited such as: the Yellowstone River, Yellowstone National Park, Slough Creek, Madison River Valley and the Gallatin River.


The playas were able to make it and though I had two close calls that bailed towards the end due to newborns and moving, we were able to put together a great crew for some memorable Fly Fishing Adventures. Whether it was Clark whom made the trek out from Minnesota for 3 whole weeks or others from Georgia; they were scattered all over the place. The fish never had a chance with these fishing phenoms. Brian made it from Minnesota as well, Dave from D town, myself and Donny B from Atl.


Think of Yellowstone and 2 words (okay more like 50) come to mind, bears and Buffalo's to look out for. Fortunately we only encountered the Buffs, it's always a riot to see these guys all over and even more so when we were awoken one morning by one walking feet from our tent waking us up!
Whether it was waiting patiently on the hwy for one to move along or others whom camped out at our campspot for breakfast, they were always seemingly entertaining.


Yellowstone Cutthroats on dry flies, does it get any better than an impressive Cutty shooting up 5 feet like a missile to attack a grasshopper....what an experience!


Canyon Village is my old haunt and visiting Lower Falls over the years never gets old. An experience everyone should try is to hike into 7 Mile Hole "7 Mile Hell" locals call it (14 miles rt) and exploring any section if Yellowstones Canyon is quite an experience when targeting nice trout.

Great fish! A Cutthroat trout is more than a Cutthroat trout when you say "jellyrock cutty" damn I love those fish. Thanks for sharing the photo of that one.
