Parks' Fly Shop: Fly Fishing and Fly Tying Podcasts in Yellowstone Country

Parks' Fly Shop Yellowstone Area Fly Fishing Podcast

We have made the jump from simply posting an occasional audio file on our website to true podcasting. Our podcast will primarily consist of Walter giving area fishing tips, fishing reports, and forecasts for time-sensitive hatches like the Mother's Day Caddis hatch, but it may also include area conservation news and other information related to the Yellowstone area, as well as general fishing tips. We'll obviously shamelessly self-promote on the podcast, but that's sort of what free podcasts from businesses are kind of for, isn't it?

Our podcast is hosted at Podomatic. We are currently attempting to get the podcast listed in the Itunes directory, as well. To subscribe, visit this link.

Below you'll find summaries of episodes of the podcast, as well as links to each individual file. Please visit our Podomatic page to browse all podcasts, or click above to subscribe to our podcast. If you have any trouble, contact Walter Wiese.

Episode 1: Introduction to Parks' Fly Shop Podcasts

Posted March 21, 2011

Uh... this introductory podcast is pretty much what's written above. We've got to start somewhere, right?


Episode 2: Yellowstone Area Salmonfly Hatches

Posted March 24, 2011

In this podcast, Walter Wiese discusses the timing and locations of Salmonfly hatches in Yellowstone Park and on the Yellowstone River itself and offers suggestions on how to maximize your success when fishing Salmonfly hatches, which are fabled as one of the hatches serious fly anglers MUST fish at some point in their lives. This podcast recycles some content previously posted on our site.

Episode 3: Late March and Early April in Yellowstone Country

Posted March 27, 2011

In this podcast, Walter discusses the fishing opportunities available on the Yellowstone River and Paradise Valley spring creeks from late March through mid-April, probably the most underrated time of year to fish the region.


Episode 4: Post-Runoff Fishing on the Yellowstone River

Posted April 7, 2011

This year we expect a protracted, heavy runoff on the Yellowstone River. During years with such conditions, the river typically becomes fishable at a higher than usual level and requires changes in flies and tactics, but produces some big, aggressive fish.


Episode 5: 2011 Yellowstone Area Season Forecast

Posted May 25, 2011

This season we've been blessed/cursed with a very heavy snowpack and a wet, cool spring. This is going to result in an extended season for some of the waters in the western part of YNP, a late start for waters at the north end of the park and beyond the north boundary, and much more consistent conditions than usual from mid-August onward on these northern waters. Listen for more details.
