The fishing in the Cody/Yellowstone area was not affected by the Yellowstone floods – come out and enjoy the excellent fly fishing!

Yellowstone Lake and River below Fishing Bridge

Fishing has been closed in Yellowstone National Park since the first Monday in November. Fishing season reopens Memorial Day weekend, but not on Yellowstone Lake or Yellowstone River until sometime in June. Everything is frozen and locked up in ice until late April.

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.
