Firehole River Fly Fishing Yellowstone

Firehole River Yellowstone

Back to Fishing Map

The Firehole River, in spite of its temperature fluctuations, is a magnificent trout stream. It is beautiful and it is quite unique due to the hot springs, geysers and thermal features. These also make it minerally rich, which benefit the many fish in it. Often the colder streams that flow into the Firehole will be havens for fish escaping the summer heat. The best dry fly fishing for the Yellowstone Park opening is without question the Firehole river.

No floating devices are allowed in the river.
