The fishing season for Yellowstone National Park opens this Saturday, May 23. Yellowstone is one of those places that draws people form all over the world. For good reason too. It offers visitors a unique experience that is hard to match anywhere in the world. There is more water than you could legitimately fish in a lifetime, and most of it is pretty overlooked. You have better odds of catching native and wild fish in YNP than most places in the area. The fishing experience here is well worth the time, money and effort to get here.
Park licenses are now available down here at the store. A three day license is $18, a week is $25 and a whole season is $40. If you're a local or plan on visiting even a couple of times the season pass is way to go. Combine that with a yearly Yellowstone license and you're in good shape.
Personally, Yellowstone is one of the places I hold near and dear to my heart. I grew up fishing the Firehole, swinging soft hackles for trout during the Fall Baetis hatches. Many happy days over the years have been spent exploring the various waters of the Park, and I feel like I haven't even really scratched the surface. There is a lifetime's worth of excellent water in Yellowstone. Might as well get started on it now.
