Profile of the Firehole River, WY

When planning a fly fishing trip to Yellowstone National Park, a visit to the Firehole River is on everyones list and the reasons are many. Not only is there easy access along the Grand Loop from Upper Geyser Basin to Madison Junction, but the wildlife and thermal features combine all aspects of the Yellowstone experience. In previous years and depending on the time of year, there can be additional regulations for the Firehole due to higher than normal water temperatures. In this area of the park, anglers can expect to catch Browns and Rainbows. We've had success with dries, dry/droppers, and indicator nymphing. Typical caddis patterns worked well and swinging soft hackles raised fish near the end of the drift. Make sure you have your camera, you will not be disappointed.
