Fishing Yellowstone National Park: Third Edition
Richard Parks' book Fishing Yellowstone National Park is now in its third edition. Originally published by Falcon Guides, it is now put out by The Lyons Press.
This book serves a somewhat different function than all the other Yellowstone fishing guides out there. Richard is the first to admit that the book is lacking in fly and hatch information, but despite the title it isn't intended as a fishing guide in the sense of many others. Instead, it focuses on describing in precise detail how to access almost every piece of water in the Park that's worth fishing, including both road and trail mileage down to the nearest tenth of a mile and frank discussions of the difficulty of any hiking involved. It also provides accurate descriptions of what kind of fish and what kind of water characters you'll find on a given stream and suggestions on tactics, and doesn't sugercoat things if the fish are small or way too smart for their own good or the crowds of anglers are thick. When combined with the hatch charts and river and stream descriptions in our How To Site, or with Walter's e-book Fly Fishing Yellowstone Country, the book gives a thorough introduction to Yellowstone's fish and fisheries, though you should still call us for current conditions.
You can purchase the book from Amazon, but if you buy it from us for slightly more money you get a personalized autograph from Richard.
