Custom Yellowstone Adventures

Set up camp along the banks of some of Yellowstone's best fishing

Fly Fishing the backcountry of Yellowstone National Park should be on the bucket list of every fly fisherman. Miles and miles of the parks best fishing is only accessible to the select few that are willing to strap on a pack and get away from the roads. Let me assure you the fishing, scenery, and wildlife will make the experience well worth the effort. We promise you nothing quite compares to falling asleep under the stars while listening to the river flow by after a day of fishing and a delicious meal around the campfire. The best part about it is you can leave all the logistic planning up to LFFE. We will take care of all the gear, the campsite reservations, the meal planning and cooking, and much more. All you have to do is show up ready for the adventure of a lifetime.

Sample Itinerary

Day 1: Meet your guides at the airport in Jackson, WY or Bozeman, MT. From there we will head into Yellowstone where a comfortable camp will be set up and waiting for you. After the first of many hearty meals around the campfire dinner you will have time to fish the evening hatch.

Day 2-3: Wake up to a warm breakfast before repacking our gear into backpacks and heading into the Yellowstone backcountry. As soon as you get to your campsite along a remote section of one of Yellowstone’s most beautiful and productive trout streams your guides will set up camp right on the river while you fish nearby. A layover day at the same site allows you to really explore the river a mile or two in either direction.

Day 4: After two full days of catching fish in some of the most beautiful surroundings imaginable we will hike back out to the trailhead and make our way back to town for a hot shower and soft bed before you fly out the next morning. (hotel stays the night before a trip starts or the day it ends can be arranged at an additional cost)

Species: Yellowstone Cutthroat, Snake River Cutthroat, Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Brook Trout.
