Happy Cutthroat

Fly fishing Soda Butte Creek in Yellowstone National Park for cutthroat trout.

Who doesn't like watching rising fish?!

I recently took a road trip through Yellowstone National Park and Wyoming with Jennifer to explore, animal watch, and of course find good fall fishing! One of the highlights while visiting Yellowstone is to fish some of the parks fabled waters in the northeast corner. The main three rivers are the Lamar, Slough Creek, and Soda Butte. While the Lamar River was blown out like it typically can be when a rainstorm hits, Soda Butte Creek can be in a little better shape and is home to some beautiful Yellowstone cutthroat trout.

While fishing there one blustery afternoon last week we experienced an excellent green drake hatch and the cutthroat rising with reckless abandon. Enjoy this short clip of the feeding frenzy on Soda Butte Creek.

Full trip report and photos to come.
