Slough Creek is one of the most beautiful regions in Yellowstone. Not only does it provide great fishing but also some of the most breathtaking scenery in Yellowstone, including Cutoff Mountain and Frenchie's Meadow.
Because of Slough Creek's extreme popularity, we recommend booking this trip as early as possible. There is a three night maximum stay allotted by the National Park Service. Consequently, this is a four day trip. Additional days can be added by riding over Bliss Pass into Pebble Creek, which is home to the Yellowstone mountain goat and which also provides pretty decent fly fishing. It is also a great place to see moose. Additional day rides can be taken to the Buffalo Plateau and the Buffalo Creek meadow.
Fly fishing in Slough Creek is good throughout the entire packing season, July to October. The fishing is mostly limited to cutthroat trout and, thus, is catch and release only. (We are starting to see a few rainbows and cutbows.) All fishing in Yellowstone requires a Yellowstone fishing license, available at any visitor center. These licenses must be purchased in person; we cannot get them for you.
The map details the route and campsite for the four day venture. The cost of the trip is $1,800 per person. You can compare the routes and prices of all our trips by visiting Horse Pack Trips - Maps and Prices.
This trip has a stationary Base Camp.
Be sure to check out the number one selling CD in Yellowstone by your guide, Jett Hitt. It is a full scale violin concerto recorded by the Slovak Radio Symphony.
