....................... ......Fly Fishing Yellowstone National Park
New "Perfect Fly" Website Stream Section - Lava Creek We recently added a four page section on Lava Creek, a small stream tributary to the Gardner River in Yellowstone National Park, to our "Perfect Fly" website Stream section. This is an excellent, easy to access brook trout stream in its upper section above Undine Falls. Below the falls, it flows through a deep canyon and has the same species of trout the Gardner River has - brook trout, brown trout, rainbow trout, cutthroat trout and cutbow trout.
The lower section consist of fast pocket water and is difficult to access in some areas. It can be accessed at the bridge where the Grand Loop Road crosses the Gardner River near Mammoth. Some of the stream is almost impossible to reach.
Update On Current Conditions: Although we have yet to fish Yellowstone this year, reports we are getting from our Perfect Fly customers who have fished recently is the fishing has been excellent for the past several days both in the park and in the streams near the park. The Yellowstone River should be coming down some and improving and the Northeast Corner - the Lamar, Slough and Soda Butte Creek should be red hot. We hope you get the opportunity to go.
