Yellowstone River, Livingston, Montana

The Yellowstone River draws fishermen and fisherwomen from around the world.  It is the largest, un-dammed and free-flowing river in the country.  Brown, cutthroat and rainbow trout all inhabit the Yellowstone.  The scenery alone is reason to explore the many miles of the Yellowstone River Basin.  Rich and varied habitat provides excellent sub-surface and dry fly fishing.

The stretch of river that flows through Livingston is considered one of the most productive and is further enhanced by the many tributaries along this section.  More information about fishing the Yellowstone and stream flows and regulations.
