Some of the best sport fishing in and around Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho is found in Yellowstone National Park. Cutthroat trout, browns, rainbows, brookies, lake trout, and grayling are among the premier game fish found in the park’s pristine lakes, powerful rivers, and meandering streams. Fishing Yellowstone National Park describes all the waters and their fishes, so anglers will know exactly when and where to fish, how to get there, and what kind of fly, lure, or other gear to use.

He shares his intimate knowledge of 106 top fishing spots, including in-depth site descriptions, the species present, and the best times to fish; tips on lures, flies, bait, and tackle; and information about trails, distances, terrain, availability of campgrounds, river access, and regulations.
