Fly Fishing Courses this Summer in Yellowstone

Yellowstone is a fly-fishing paradise. Nowhere in the world are there so many public rivers, lakes and streams found in such a small area. And with the many wonders of the park as a backdrop, Yellowstone is the perfect place to learn how to fly fish or to fine tune your angling skills. We have three multi-day fly-fishing programs to choose from this summer. Check them out and find the seminar that best fits you!

 Beginner’s Fly Fishing

When: July 9-12

Our Fly Fishing for Beginners course will provide an excellent opportunity to learn new skills while experiencing the breathtaking beauty and wildlife of Yellowstone National Park.

This program will provide a balance between classroom, dry-land instruction, and time spent on Yellowstone waters. Mornings on the first two days will be spent in the “classroom” learning about safety, equipment, and more. Afternoons on the first two days and the whole final day will be spent on Yellowstone waters. Casting basics and techniques will help you present the fly. Entomology and fly selection will help you understand why. And connecting and humanely releasing fish will help you understand how you impact the fishery. On top of that list, we will speak in length about the fishery, ecosystem, and challenges facing Yellowstone in an effort to build greater stewardship of this incredible resource.

Fly Fishing the Wild Backpacking Trip

When: September 2-9

Yellowstone National Park is one of the premier fly-fishing destinations in the United States, if not the world. There are places where you can catch more and bigger trout, but nowhere else can you catch native Yellowstone cutthroat trout in company of the full complement of wildlife that was present at the time of Louis and Clark. Wildness is the thing that sets fishing in Yellowstone apart from anywhere else in the contiguous US. This field seminar will visit one of the wildest of the wild, Yellowstone River south the SE arm of Yellowstone Lake, the true “upper” Yellowstone. The group will be shuttled by boat from Lake Lodge to a remote campsite near the SE arm of the Lake, then spending the next six days exploring this wild region and fishing these pristine waters. The trip will include two two-night “base” camps to allow plenty of on-water time, and optionally explore the high-country of the Colter Peak massif.

Instructors: Jesse Logan, PhD, Steve Harvey
