....................... ......Fly Fishing Yellowstone National Park
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.
