It is officially run-off season here in Yellowstone Country. This means that the Yellowstone River and many of its tributaries like the Stillwater and Boulder Rivers are high, muddy, and more or less unfishable until the end of June. Yellowstone National PArk open to fish the Saturday, May 25, and there will be great walk-wade fishing options in the park. Another great Spring fishing option in the Livingston and Gardiner Area this time of year is to fish our Secluded Lakes.. These lakes are private, Spring-fed lakes on huge Montana ranches. The fishing on these lakes is beast in the Spring because the Lake water is cold and the weeds have not grown, yet. Generally speaking, the average size fish in the lakes range from nice size (12-18 inches) to potentially monsterous (22+ inches).
Depending on the lake, We could be targeting:

These lakes are private and require additional rod fees of 80-100 dollars. There are a limited number of rods available/boats available per lake per day. Advanced booking is necessary. It is totally worth it! Spending a day on one of our secluded lakes is a great way to split up a multi-day Yellowstone trip.
Give us a call if you want to spend a great day out on the Lake!
