The Roche Jaune, or yellow-rock river, as French trappers called the Yellowstone, is one of Montana’s best-loved waterways. The river gets a high degree of respect from anglers and floaters who appreciate the unusual circumstances that led to the river’s pristine waters and productive fishing. And the river doesn’t lack for scenic beauty, either. The longest free-flowing river in the lower 48 states, the Yellowstone begins as a mountain stream in a Wyoming wilderness south of Yellowstone National Park. The pristine quality of this river’s beginnings keeps the waters clear and pure, leading to a high volume of aquatic “bugs”—and ample trout food! As it flows through the park, the river adds greatly to the visitor’s appreciation of this natural wonderland. This eTrail provides detailed information on family-friendly things to do. The destinations include: Mayor's Landing to Sheep Mountain Fishing Access Float, Sheep Mountain Fishing Access Site to Springdale Bridge Float, and Springdale Bridge to Gray Bear Fishing Access Float.
