New "Perfect Fly" Website Stream Section -  Slough Creek
We recently added Slough Creek to our "Perfect Fly" website Stream section.
Slough Creek is one of the most popular trout streams in the nation. It's known
for its huge cutthroat trout that exist its many meadows. This is also one of the
most beautiful streams in Yellowstone National Park. It's also known for its
wolves, grizzly bears and other wildlife.

You can fish the lower three mile section by making a short hike but the upper
three meadows require from two and a half miles to six miles of hiking each way.

Its trout are mostly all native Yellowstone Cutthroat trout that are frequently
caught up to and over 20 inches. The lower section of the creek has some
rainbow and cutthroats as well as cutbows or hybrids.

The upper three meadows of this stream often become fishable prior to the
other streams in the Lamar Valley including the Lamar River or Soda Butte
Creek. It's possible to fish it from about this time of the year on but it also may
not be clear until the first week of July. It depends on the snowpack of the
Beartooth Mountains and the weather.
