yellowstone river

Everyone's bucket list should include a day fly-fishing on the world-famous yellowstone river. The yellowstone river's headwaters start south of yellowstone lake in yellowstone national park (check out our logo). The river tumbles, WINES, and crashes down through the park. When it leaves the park, in gardiner, mt, the yellowstone flows almost due north, through paradise valley, to livingston where it then takes a north-eastern turn toward billings, mt. The yellowstone is the main river we float as it is in our back yard. it is 692 miles of free-flowing water (un-damed) making it the longest free flowing river in the lower 48 states.  

WE FLOAT THE ENTIRE YELLOWSTONE RIVER, BUT SPECIALIZE IN TAKING TRIPS ON THE "UPPER RIVER." THIS STRETCH IS LESS FISHED AND STARTS AT THE PARK BOUNDARY IN GARDINER, MT AND RUNS THROUGH EMIGRANT, MONTANA. THERE ARE TWO "RAPID" SECTIONS, THE YANKEE JIM CANYON" AND THE "SCHOOL HOUSE" RAPID SECTION RIGHT IN GARDINER. THESE SECTIONS REQUIRE RAFTS AND GUIDES WITH EXPERT WHITE WATER EXPERIENCE. THE FISH IN THESE SECTIONS RARELY SEE FLIES. FLOAT TRIPS ARE GREAT FOR ANGLERS OF ALL ABILITY LEVELS. because of our small size and commitment to providing the best experience possible, we have the flexibility to switch float trips (of one or two anglers) to yellowstone park walk-wades, and vise-versa, at a MOMENTS notice to ensure we take you on the best possible trip that day.
