Full description
Benefit from pick-up at your lodging in Jackson or Teton Village, or make your own way to the boat dock at Lewis Lake in Yellowstone National Park for a day of fishing for trout. Start with a 1.5-hour drive north through the Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, and stop to pick up your fishing license en route to Lewis Lake (you can also get one in advance from the Visitor Center in Jackson, or at any of the ranger stations in Yellowstone National Park). Upon arrival, discover a chain of lakes, consisting of Lewis and Shoshone lakes, connected by about a mile of river known as the "Lewis/Shoshone Channel." While every trip is different, your guides will generally spend some time on Lewis Lake, as well as row you up the channel for more fishing opportunities. Depending on your group, you also will have the chance to disembark and hike further up the channel to wade fish in the fantastic water! Dry fly fishing, streamer fishing and spin cast fishing are all possible throughout the day, and all equipment is provided for your convenience. Feel free to bring any appropriate equipment that you like in addition, but please note that no bait, no lead, 1 hook per lure and barbless hooks only are permitted in Yellowstone National Park.  Native trout will be released back into the water alive, but you will have the opportunity to keep any lake trout, along with brown trout on occasion. Your guides will try to get you back on the road by 16:00, getting you back to Jackson by 18:00. However, departure and return times can be flexible if needed.

Had a great time! Can’t ask for a more beautiful setting! My husband is an experienced angler. I am not, but still had lots of fun! Joe was a good and patient teacher.
