I'd arrive in Gardiner Thursday evening then and would spend Friday thru early Monday in YNP. Total driving would be about 400 miles split between three evenings, so very manageable.
This is a spectacular tour. I've done it!
Whether you should stick to one place for a couple days or hop rivers everyday is up to you. They are completely different trips. I'd say, try to play it by ear. That time of the year the fishing will be spotty so if you find a river/spot that is fishing great, I'd stay put. The next stop may not be so hot. But who knows!?! It's fishing!
