Backcountry fishing in yellowstone national park 900x600 dsc03773 0 8

By Brian McGeehan at Montana Angler Fly Fishing

No fly-fishing trip to Montana is complete without a visit to Yellowstone National Park. The world’s first national park, established by an act of the U.S. Congress in 1872, is as iconic for its wild trout populations as it is for its geysers, bison and grizzly bears. Anglers visiting Yellowstone have a broad variety of waters to fish, with backcountry outings offering some of the most exceptional fishing in the park.

The Yellowstone backcountry encompasses an incredible diversity of fishing opportunities within its 3,468 square miles, including alpine lakes, spring creeks, broad rivers and tumbling streams. The Yellowstone River alone provides countless angling opportunities as it flows from its headwaters in the Thorofare region to...

I recently enjoyed reading and shared a brief review of "Fly Fishing Evolution: Advanced Strategies for Dry Fly, Nymph, and Streamer Fishing" by George Daniel. As mentioned in my review, this is a great read for the advanced angler looking for new ideas on improving their game.

As a big fan of George and all the work he does for the sport this book is another fine addition to that contribution. You will be able to find George this winter presenting at the Fly Fishing Shows in Edison and Lancaster. You can sign up for his news letter at his website Livinonthefly.

I have been provided a brand new hard copy of "Fly Fishing Evolution: Advanced Strategies for Dry Fly, Nymph, and Streamer Fishing." I’m going to be...

Maine 2023 Mountains -> Salt

All-

I've been debating posting about my most recent trip to Maine, and how I wanted to share it for a little bit now. I finally decided to actually write up a quick story of the trip, the planning and the results. Don't expect a stream report, but more of an anecdote

Back in 2022, I went on a dedicated fishing trip with a buddy up to Maine in September. I'd been to Maine twice before with my wife, and fished albeit sparingly compared to a typical fishing trip.

It was the first time we both had gone up together to fish for brook trout, we hired a guide and got after it. Hundreds of cast, more than a handful of flies lost, and miles of streams hiked, we really immersed ourselves in the fishing up in Maine. We had plenty of success, after all the finicky brown trout of PA gave us some good practice before we tried our hand at the brook trout in Maine. Countless fish that would be personal best in PA were plentiful.

After a tough day of fishing for myself, where I definitely lost...

Native Brook Trout Adventure Shot on Kodak 16mm Film

I always enjoy the quality and cinematic efforts by the guys over at Allegheny Native with their Pennsylvania Fly Fishing videos. Much of the video they shoot is in far out of the way areas of Northern Pennsylvania that always inspires me to jump in my car. This video has a little twist with many of the shots having been filmed on a 16mm. Video is hard enough, but filming on darker cloudy days in tree covered streams with 16mm film? That's a tough one to pull off.

Life has been very good lately, but very busy with my daughter getting married last week and a move coming up. All good things and no problems. I made the last minute call to get away for a break and fit in a few days away for some fall fishing. The weather, water and time were perfect. Having moved a year ago I really missed my backyard fire-pit. Part of my plans for fishing included a fire, a steak, and some bourbon. The trip turned out perfect and had a bonus of some nice fall colors to add to the atmosphere.

Thursday
The weather was beautiful for an early fall morning - sunny with temperatures in the low 70’s. I shouldn’t have been surprised, but it was nice to see the leaves turning. I started up off Tunnel Road and there were a few people around but clearly not like the spring. The water...
