Yellowstone Fly Fishing Guide

Yellowstone Lake Float – Yellowstone National Park

Character of the Water

This is an extremely productive lake in which most of the fish you catch are between 18 – 22 inches and the average tends to be about 19 inches. Both wet and dry flies work on this lake and which you use will depend on the time of the year and hatches. Sometimes we troll wet flies and other times we anchor and cast from a stationary boat.

Time to Fish

We guide on Yellowstone Lake from Memorial Day into October, so it can accommodate a wide variety of trip timing. Find out more about how your trip schedule will affect the fishing conditions.

What’s Hatching

If conditions are right, we will cast a dry fly to a cruising trout; this is much like stalking a bonefish on the flats. Spin fishing also works well on Yellowstone Lake, and we are happy to take spin fishermen. We use ultralight rigs with 6- to 8-pound lines. If you don’t wish to bring rods with you, we will be happy to supply you with a loaner.
