Default Yellowstone Park fishing trip

I spent a week at Yellowstone, just fishing. It was Father's Day week, so I decided I was entitled to it. The family didn't make the trip this time.

I stayed at Norris Campground, and fished the Firehole, Madison, Gibbon, and several small creeks. I tried all sorts of flies, but a (beadless) Prince and a Black Wooly seemed the best overall. Here are some pics.

Wow, looks like an awesome trip, loved that photo of the snow on the Gibbon and that beautiful browns, rainbows and brookie, sure makes a trip worthwhile when you can hook into quality fish like that! Congrats!

So coming all that way, did you fly out and rent a car or drive?

Enjoyed your pictures! Did give me a memory-chuckle. Our first trip to the Firehole, I'd had VERY little experience with Brookies ... the waters I'd fished held BIG rainbow ... The first brookie I hooked, I set, just like I did the big trouts....and proceeded to launch it almost into the next county! Poor little fish! I had to brush dirt off it before I let it go back to its waters! I'll never forget now to set gently ALL my fishes.

I drove. It took 26 hours of road time (from Oxford, MS). Not so bad; lots of good sights in the region (WY, UT, CO, NM).

Yellowstone Park is a must-do trip for father and son. I took my boy when he was 9. Best trip we ever made. Those Gibbon fish are easy to catch, for both kids and dads alike.

Yes, that is a long drive, but from the looks of the photos, it was well worth it to make the trip out. Congrats on a great trip!

That's impressive to say the least.

Definitely a beautiful drive though!
