Winter Rentals, Trips, Sales, and Services

Welcome to Parks' Fly Shop's winter website. If you're looking for infomation on our core season fly fishing business, covering the period from April through early November, click the PFS Main Site link.

From late November through early April, Parks' Fly Shop transforms into a crosscountry ski and snowshoe rental shop. We are open all winter, at somewhat reduced hours (generally 9-5 daily, 10-4 Sundays, with occasional unannounced closures). We offer a full range of classic crosscountry touring skis, backcountry touring skis, and snowshoes, as well as limited amounts of winter apparel and accessories, such as ski socks, fleece, and handwarmers.

Some of our fly fishing gear is put away to make room for the winter rentals, but most is available, including a wide range of nymph, midge, and egg patterns that work well whenever it's warm enough to stand being on the river. Winter fishing can actually be quite good on the Yellowstone River, the Paradise Valley Spring Creeks, and, further afield, on the Missouri River. Our guide service slows to a trickle, but we would be glad to take you fishing for an afternoon on the Yellowstone or a full-day on the spring creeks at any time during the winter.

Use the links above to navigate the site. Click the PFS Main Site link to return to our main site.

Winter offers excellent opportunities for wildlife viewing, and is the main reason most visitors come to Yellowstone at this time. Walter photographed this bighorn ram above Soda Butte Creek. 1200mm 35mm equivalent, f/7.1.
