Yellowstone Fly Fishing Guides

Yellowstone Lake Float

At 280 square miles, Yellowstone Lake is North America’s largest mountain lake and also boasts the world’s largest population of inland Cutthroat trout. When the lake opens to fishing on Memorial Day, we begin guiding both fly and spin fishermen.

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 wets 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. 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 very well on Yellowstone Lake and we are happy to take spin fishermen. We use ultralight rigs with 6 – 8 pound line. If you don’t wish to bring rods with you we will be happy to supply you with a loan one.

All our fishing is done from one of our comfortable guide boats. Lunch, transportation, park entrance and loan equipment are included in the price. You will just need to get license and a few flies or lures and you’re set to go. We begin guiding fly fishermen on the Yellowstone Lake starting Memorial Day.
