It’s numerous meadows and large Cutthroat have made Slough Creek one of the more famous rivers in Yellowstone National Park.
Slough Creek (pronounced sloo) has wide open meadows mixed with fast canyon sections and consistent hatches with big trout. Drakes, PMDs and the famous Slough Creek Cricket are usually the topic of conversation while rigging up in the parking areas.
The Cutthroat Trout in Slough Creek are wily, picky and quite large. Careful attention to presentation and drift are a must. This creek fishes more like a spring creek than a free stone most days.
Anglers looking for more remote locations might consider a horse back ride into the famous 3rd Meadow of Slough Creek. Advanced reservation required.
