The Yellowstone River and Premiere Blue-Ribbon Fishing
This constant, unwavering river flows throughout the Yellowstone River corridor just as it has for centuries: in its natural state. It has not been dammed nor tamed and is the longest, free flowing river as such in the lower 48 states. It meanders through a variety of scenery and various topographies from steep canyon walls to lazily flowing through farm country. Its fresh, clean waters provide fishing, floating, swimming, and rafting. The nutrient rich areas surrounding the river are a paradise for wildlife making hunting especially good as well. Enjoy viewing wildlife such as bald eagles, elk, white-tailed deer, and black bears. Certainly, you will want to take advantage of the world class fishing known internationally. These premiere trout waters produce an abundance of big trout and native Yellowstone cutthroat trout. In the upper half of the river, species found are cutthroat trout, rainbow trout, large whitefish, and brown trout. In the lower half or warmer waters, species found are large walleye, catfish, and sturgeon. The beauty of fishing the Yellowstone River is its length and ample space. Anglers are not crowded with others and have the length of the river to spread out. The beautiful landscape encompassing the banks really enhance the whole experience. Dry fly fishing is excellent as well as sub-surface fishing with nymphs and streamers. The section from Big Timber to Billings, where this property is located, is the least heavily used. In this portion of the river, waders and anglers likely are alone and can take delight in the Absaroka Mountains on the skyline to the south.
