Slough Creek BC

Hello from Yellowstone,

Our group of now experienced anglers came out of the Slough Creek backcountry this afternoon all with stories of the big wild cutthroats that had eagerly taken our flies. The fishing was incredible to go along with the scenery. It is truly one of the most phenomenal trout streams that the country has to offer, filled with large cutthroat lurking in deep pools formed by bends in the river.
It is hard to believe that our time in Yellowstone National Park comes to an end tomorrow. Our group has improved so much in the short time that we have had them, an accomplishment that they should all be proud of. We have gotten to see a massive portion of the park, which has provided both dramatic mountains and meandering meadows.

Tomorrow we will pack up our things and head back to Jackson Hole for the last three days of the trip. Once we set up camp, we will head to the Jackson recreational center to take showers and play some ultimate frisbee. The next day brings a whole other adventure: our service project and whitewater rafting trip. We will be spending the morning cleaning up trails around Jackson, and then we will head to our whitewater adventure, which will no doubt be an awesome way to end the day.
The last full day of the trip will be spent floating the Snake with WorldCast Anglers, one of the west’s premier fly fishing outfitters. It will be an awesome end to an already incredible trip. We can’t believe that this trip is already nearing its end, but we are looking forward to spending a few more days with our group!
