Yellowstone Lake and River below Fishing Bridge

May 5, 2022 9:00 am

Yellowstone Lake and the Yellowstone River is closed to fishing until Memorial Day weekend 2022. Some closures will be in effect on the lake and the river to protect spawning cutthroat trout until June 20.

Yellowstone Park’s fishing season is Memorial Day weekend through the first weekend in November each year.
North Fork Anglers does sell Yellowstone National Park Fishing Permits in 3 day, 7 day and Seasonal licenses.

Flow statistics, water conditions, hatches and fly recommendations will be posted again prior to the season opening in 2022.

Should you want an immediate update on flows, water quality, hatches, fly suggestions, we advise you call, not email, North Fork Anglers at 307-527-7274 for that. We also suggest and recommend that you do the same for the 2022 Guided Trip season to reserve dates and guides. We are already getting bookings for late spring and summer trips in 2022. If  you have your dates picked out, we urge you to get a deposit made as soon as possible so you don’t miss the chance to float or walk/wade Cody/Bighorn area rivers and streams.
