fly fishing the backcountry


New Member
Mar 12, 2014
Hello y'all I'm planning a trip out to yellowstone this year and had some questions. I'm most likely flying into west yellowstone but have never flown to a backpacking destination. Few questions on locations. I'm looking to fish the firehole river for a day or 2 but then what to hike into backcountry for some good fly fishing.

I've read the nez perce and magpie are good fishing and a nice hike. I won't be hiking the trail but along the creek itself.

Anyone that's been in this area and can offer some details on fishing and the hike itself would be awesome
