Yellowstone Adventure Update

The final countdown is on for the Yellowstone Adventure group. It has been a busy few days! Today the group is out float fishing the Snake River with some of the top guides in the country from WorldCast Anglers. It is sure to be the perfect end to 14 days of fishing.

After exiting the Slough Creek Backcountry we spent one last night in the Lamar Valley. Some fresh brook and rainbow trout we caught out of Tower Creek on the way were a great addition to our taco dinner. After dinner we all had the opportunity to explore upper Pebble Creek. The canyon is littered with caves and jammed full of cutthroat. I am pretty sure it wont soon be forgotten. From there we headed to our last campsite inside of Yellowstone, Grant Village, where we took some showers and did some much needed laundry.

Our trip is coming to a close with three days back in Jackson, WY. Two days ago we went on a half day whitewater rafting trip through the Snake River Canyon with guides from Barker-Ewing Whitewater. The rafting trip was a nice action packed change of pace for the kids who were allowed to cool off between rapids in the chilly frigid snow melt fueled river.

Yesterday we had the opportunity to give back to the public lands that we were lucky enough to spend the past two weeks fishing by doing some trail maintenance along Philips ridge trails with the Bridger-Teton National Forest service. The crew worked fast and hard to help clear debris along the trail. After work we played our annual ultimate frisbee match and visited the Jackson Rec. center and Pool.

Our trip has flown by and I feel lucky to have been able to get to know and teach each of these wonderful young men. Hammett, Peter, and I  are looking forward to hearing about their float trip, and reminisce about all the fun times while at our banquet dinner tonight.

Tight Lines,

Hudson and crew
