NOTICE: As of May 19, 2017, all anglers fishing in the state of Montana must purchase an Aquatic Invasive Species Prevention Pass in addition to standard Fishing and Conservation Licenses.

Welcome to Parks’ Fly Shop’s Montana and Yellowstone Park fishing reports. Check out the General Fishing Report for an overview of what’s going on in our corner of Montana and Yellowstone Park. Visit the Trip Reports, News, and Tips page for detailed accounts of recent fishing trips by our guides, staff, clients, and friends, including specifics on flies used, hatches encountered, and other fishing tips, as well as plenty of eye candy and bragging (when bragging is called for). This is also where we’ll post fishing and tying tips (particularly during the winter and spring), news about the shop and from Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks and the National Park Service, and winter and spring updates on snowpack and what we expect for the upcoming summer/fall season.

Would you like to submit a report? Please send it to PFS Head Guide Walter Wiese. You can send a few photos for him to choose from as well. Please note whether you’d like your name and e-mail to be included in the report or not.

If you’ve found this page through a Google search or otherwise aren’t familiar with our fly shop, please visit Parks’ Fly Shop’s Main Site to learn about the guided fishing trips we offer, to learn more about the shop, or to peruse our in-depth Montana and Yellowstone fly fishing trip planner for lots of free advice on fishing our region.
