Fly fishing the Lamar River is truly what anglers imagine when they envision fishing in Yellowstone Park.
The Lamar is located in the northeast corner of the Park and ranges from wide open meadows to tight fast flowing canyons. All of which hold plenty of trout, some quite large. Anglers willing to walk a bit farther are usually rewarded.
The famed Lamar Valley is home to free ranging bison, wolves, bear, elk and antelope – and a lot of cutthroat trout. With a classic riffle, run, pool structure the trout feed well during hatch activity. Hatches of mayflies can be prolific, bringing even the largest trout to the surface – especially if you catch the Fall Drakes.
