The streams, rivers, lakes, and ponds near Parks' Fly Shop offer rich and varied options for fly fishing the Yellowstone area. You can find turbulent pocket water creeks where small, feisty trout eat big dry flies as you fish in solitude, flat meadow streams where long leaders and long trout are the rules rather than the exceptions, brawling canyon rivers, beaver ponds, and the largest alpine lake in North America. All these different waters call for very different approaches to find angling success. Please click the links below for more information on each of our primary fisheries. Each link includes a description, notes on access, a hatch and fly pattern chart, fishing tips, and a list of top flies. Of course you can always contact us for more information on a given fishery or for tips on which fishery to select.
Waters farther than about a two hour driver from PFS that might interest visitors to our website are covered in less detail on the "Distant Waters" page.
