Whitewater in the Yellow Stone Canyon

Yellowstone Canyons

Book an Adventure
Our Territory


Yellowstone’s iconic canyons are a memorable journey for fly fishing guides and anglers alike, and that’s before you take into account the stunning views. We’ll take you and your your fellow travelers on a guided fly fishing trip you won’t soon forget.

The Yellowstone Canyons Watershed houses what many people refer to as "The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone." The Canyon is a Montana bound stretch of river flanked on either side by sloping cliffs that look carved from the mountains beside them with an unearthly sharp chefs knife. 

These slopes are, of course, carved out by thousands of years of steadily flowing water. So, when you float fish the Yellowstone Canyon's Watershed with us on a fly fishing trip, then you're literally floating past thousands of years of brutally gorgeous geographical history. Come witness the majesty of the Yellowstone Canyons Watershed with us.

I have been guided on ten trout fishing trips with Greater Yellowstone Flyfishing Outfitters. Each was a special fishing experience. Chad Olsen and his team of guides are unparalleled in their fishing expertise in the WY and MT Yellowstone region.

It was clear that the GYFO guides were not only well-versed in the art of fly fishing but also deeply passionate about it. They were eager to share their wealth of knowledge, patiently explaining the intricacies of the sport and offering invaluable tips and tricks.

What sets Greater Yellowstone Flyfishing Outfitters apart is their commitment to providing a holistic experience. It's not just about the fishing - it's about immersing oneself in nature's beauty, appreciating the water's tranquility, and experiencing the thrill of the catch. The guides were incredibly attentive, ensuring every trip aspect was enjoyable and memorable.

In conclusion, if you're looking for an unforgettable trout fishing experience, I cannot recommend Chad Olsen and Greater Yellowstone Flyfishing Outfitters highly enough. Their expertise, passion, and commitment to providing a top-notch experience make them the ideal choice for novice and experienced anglers.

The Rivers of the Yellowstone Canyons Watershed

As the Yellowstone river enters the Yellowstone canyons its wide, lazy, and slow moving pace quickens slightly. This stretch of the Yellowstone River is bad for wade fishing, but perfect for guided fly fishing trips filled with nyphming, and float fishing. Follow this river to the Lamar or Slough watershed, or fish it all the way into our Montana territories, the choice is yours. Either way, you're sure to get a bundle of unforgettable fishing memories from this expansive stretch of water.  Be on the lookout for rainbows, brooks and—occasionally—a brown or two during your time fly fishing this section of the Yellowstone river.
