    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.

    Yes, it snowed while I was fishing the Gibbon.

    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!
