Default Sweet Baby Jesus... Yellowstone & NW Wyoming, here we come!

Hey all,

So, I've convinced the wife that we as a family need to take a July vacation to Yellowstone and Northwest Wyoming. We'll be flying into Billings and staying in/around Cooke City for three nights. We'll then be staying a week at the 7D Ranch in the Sunlight Valley just northwest of Cody off State Highway 296.

I've not been to that area of the country before and my questions are numerous. I have several books and access to all the flyfishing propaganda/information and misinformation available via the InternetGoogleWebs.

A couple of questions for my friends out there in NAFFland:
1) I'll be fishing with my 10-year old son. How concerned should we be about getting mauled, disfigured and partially digested by a grizzly?
2) Where should we fish while in the Northwest corner of Yellowstone?
3) Where should we fish while in the Sunlight Valley/Clark's Fork of the Yellowstone area?

I know that's a whole lotta what ifs, but I gotta start narrowing down my options and you guys are the ones I trust.

Cheers, everyone! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend!

Michael & Xavier

Wow! Sounds like a really cool vacation. You probably are just talking day trips, not camping in Grizzly country. I wouldn't be too worried about it but would get a can of bear spray just in case. While in the Cooke City area you will be fairly close to the Lamar Valley and river and Slough Creek. I've never fished either but have heard good reports on both, but others on the forum can give you details on how best to fish there.
Good luck with your trip and be sure to post a trip report when you get back, we would love to hear about your adventure!
