Default Yellowstone footware

Hey,
I hope this isn't redundant. I tryed to post this two days ago and can't find the post, so I'll try again. I'm planning a trip to Jackson Hole and Yellowstone in July. Hope to hike and fish. It is not clear to me how much I will be needing waders and if I would be better off in many places wearing hiking boots and carrying something like tevas for wet wading. I have hiked a good ways in my waders, but found it suboptimal. Thanks for any help,Frogge.

A fovorite of mine when the air temp is comfortable is just to bare leg it. I hate carrying that extra luggage. After you get accustomed to your cold legs its quite refreshing and your body adjusts. I will bring in my wading shoes.

The weather here changes quickly year round and what might feel comfy one hour isn't the next. I regularly bring waders with fleece insulation and next time will do so with waist high waders. Last year it was frosty in the low 40s heading out in early August then in the 80s in the afternoon. Don't wet wade with cotton or cotton blends or you'll chill yourself out quickly. Some days start out warm then chill down due to rain, cloudcover and high winds. It's best to bring a good variety of clothing. On a given week last year it was fleece in the morning and shorts by afternoon and vice versa. I'm not one of those guys running in 40deg. weather with shorts-I'm the one in tights in 60degrees. Have fun in paradise... BTW, I've hiked 4+ miles in shorts and my studded aquastealths without problems. On the way back I switch to dry socks under a gortex sock liner with the same wet boots. My biggest worry up there is bison and grizz...

A bit off topic, and more out of curiosity than anything, but how's the fly fishing on the Yellowstone river in the middle of the park? I was up there last year, dropped the line in a couple of spots, didn't have any idea what flies to use or how to fish them or whether it even holds fish.
