Default Yellowstone NP opening - Any suggestions?

I'm in the south part of the park. Does anybody know of a good place to fish where there the water won't be too high or murky? TIA

There is a scenic bridge just as you come into the park with a waterfall on the left. I've waded to the waterfall and fished successfully several times over the years. While most of the fish are under 12", there's a lot with some trout pushing 17 on. You'll be fishing by yourself but take care as the water can be fast. I usually wade closer to the left side of the river.
The Snake river, I believe also runs by the south end of the park just inside. You would see it on the right just past the ranger station. There are several places to wade and fish. Wade carefully and be on the lookout for Grizz. There were 3 sightings there 2 years ago when I visited.
Further up past Old Faithful Inn you can fish the Firehole. Have fun and good luck.
