We also offer trips in Yellowstone National Park on Slough Creek, Soda Butte, Lamar River, Fire Hole and many others.

The Yellowstone Valley Lodge offers exceptional variety not only in the hundreds of miles of fishable water nearby, but also the accommodations and local activities for those non-anglers. YVL has several different cabin sizes to accommodate any size group from 2 to groups as large as 50. The dining experience is also quite different from most fishing lodges in that they offer a full menu not just a choice of entree.
Yellowstone Valley Lodge has a variety of Cozy, King and Deluxe cabins perfectly situated in Paradise Valley along the banks of the Yellowstone River within easy reach of Yellowstone National Park, the historic western town of Livingston and more fishable water than you can imagine. If you're looking for riverside accommodations, farm to table dining, first rate full service lodging, and exceptionally experienced fly fishing guides then you've found the right place.

However, Montana, like most western states, experiences an annual spring run-off. This is where the mountain snows melt due to the warmer weather and most of the rivers in the Livingston, Bozeman and Yellowstone Park become flooded with snow melt and can be un-fishable. Popular rivers affected are the Yellowstone, most of its tributaries in Yellowstone Park, the Gallatin and the Madison River. The runoff is 100% tied to the weather so there's no way to accurately predict when it will start or stop. This runoff typically occurs in early May and lasts through most of June. However, there are several options for fishing during that timeframe including the Private spring creeks and mountain lakes. These are excellent fisheries and require advanced reservations as space is limited.
Prime Season July through mid-September: The peak summer season offers over a dozen rivers from which to fish and well over a hundred miles of prime trout water. Highlights include dry fly fishing on the Yellowstone River, excellent technical sight fishing opportunities on the Paradise Valley Spring Creeks and a number of great fishing opportunities in Yellowstone National Park.
