Yellowstone Travels

Sean Visintainer - 09/10/20

Testing the Scott Centric 905/4 fly rod on Slough Creek, Yellowstone National Park.

Fish and fun.

The shift into September for me is a time that I typically like to sneak away for a few days and go in search of a few trout.

Yellowstone National Park is the typical starting point, combined with some other nearby waters generally makes for a pretty fun "sorta local" getaway.

A few days in the northeast section of the park means fishing rivers such as the Lamar, Slough, Soda Butte, and hiking into a section of the Yellowstone River.

This year's trip was probably more animal watching and hiking rather than fishing. But rest assured, we weren't leaving Yellowstone National Park without harassing some of it's local finned inhabitants.

Enjoy some photos from this recent adventure.

Hooked up on the South Fork Payette River. While not plentiful of fish, nor large ones, it was a fun pitstop to break up the drive home.
