The longest free-flowing river in the lower 48 states, the Yellowstone River begins high in the snow-capped mountains of Wyoming. After a tumultuous journey through Yellowstone National Park, the celebrated, yet more forgiving Paradise Valley, and the flatlands of central and eastern Montana, the Yellowstone only offers its fruitful waters to the Missouri after finally crossing the North Dakota border. This tri-state journey traverses some 672 miles through deep canyons, mountain valleys, vast cottonwood groves and prairie grasslands. Types of Fish: Yellowstone Cutthroat, Brown, and Rainbow Trout, Whitefish. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping.
