This river runs right by Yellowstone and it’s an excellent place to go fishing! There are tons of places to fish yourself or you can hire a guide. It’s also beautiful clear water for rafting too. Plus the countryside is absolutely breathtaking! Enjoy!

The staff was great......the river conditions were awesome.......the equipment was all perfect. There were lots of people and at times it seemed chaotic, but the staff had things very well organized and things moved smoothly along.

I know people who fish the river using worms and lures. Most of the guides cater to fly fishermen who are willing to pay the high price of a guided day(s) on the water. Look up any of the fly shops and give them a call... More
