          WEST YELLOWSTONE IS
          HEADQUARTERS FOR TERRIFIC
          DAY TRIPS — that’s why we’re the “Hub
          of Yellowstone Country.” In addition to
          visiting Yellowstone’s Northern Loop,
          Southern Loop or Grand Loop (the two
          combined), there’s still plenty to explore
          outside of the park. For more detailed
          information and suggested itineraries,
          visit www.destinationyellowstone.com
          and click on “trip planning.”
              We’ve captured the highlights of just
          two of many other journeys to be tried.
          How much time you take delving into
          these byways is up to you, but a full day
          is recommended for each.
              Before you go, stop by the West
          Yellowstone Visitor Center located on
          the corner of Yellowstone and Canyon
          streets one block from the entrance to
          Yellowstone National Park. The friendly
          folks there can load you up with brochures
          and information to make the trip more
          enjoyable. And, as some attractions are
          seasonal, you’ll want to make sure you
          know who’s open and who’s not.

     delight, with hatches of giant salmon flies, caddis, stoneflies
     and mayflies. As with many area rivers, the Henry’s Fork
     fishes best in the early morning, trailing off a bit during
     the afternoon hours, and goes out with a bang in the late
     afternoon and early evening. Presentation is often crucial,
     so make that first cast count.

     The Madison River
         Just over the Continental Divide lies the world-renowned
     Madison River. Fast pocket waters find rainbows and browns
     lurking behind every rock, tree and bend. The Madison
                                     offers the best fishing both early
                                     and late season. July has been
                                     noted as “the month of the
                                      Madison,” which is to say get
                                      on the river and you can’t miss.
                                      The river in Yellowstone park
                                       fishes especially well in the fall
                                       during the run of the browns,
                                        when large brown trout come
                                        into the river from Hebgen
                                         Lake in preparation for spawning.
                                         In the park, a road runs along
                                         the river, making it easy to
                                      access. From any access point,
     hike up- or downstream for long stretches of water and
     relative solitude.
         In August, the waters of the Madison warm a bit, causing
     fish to stick to deep holes and pockets. It’s best to use nymphs
     to hook into the lunkers at the bottom. Try using a big dry
     fly as a strike indicator, with a nymph tied on as a dropper.
         Ten or so miles below Quake Lake at the Reynolds Pass
     Bridge, the quality waters of the Madison begin. Huge
     boulders in this area form deep pockets full of wild rainbows
     and browns. The water is swift and presentation is less critical,
     making it an ideal area for both novice and experienced fishers.
         In August and September, terrestrial patterns are on: ants,
     beetles, grasshoppers and others. In the evenings you’ll find
     great action on caddis and mayflies. In parts, the Madison
     has sustained some damage from the impact of whirling                                   Full service fly shop
     disease. The rainbow populations have dropped considerably,                                Custom-tied flies
     causing — fortunately in some respects — the disappearance
     of fly fishermen. However, despite the decline in rainbows,                             Guided fishing trips
     excellent fishing remains prominent on the Madison River.                                    Outfitter #1604
        The best way to fish both the Henry’s Fork and the Madison
     is by boat. Local guides are both highly skilled and abundant.                              Arrick Swanson
     Roadside sportsmen access areas are also terrific.                                          (406) 646-7290
         There are enough trout in the waters of the Henry’s Fork,
     Madison and West Yellowstone-area rivers to allow everyone
                                                                                                www.arricks.com
     to spread out and enjoy the fishing without crowding fellow
     anglers. The rule of thumb for courtesy is to provide the
     person up- or downstream at least 50 yards on the left and
     right side. If you cannot find a space, keep looking — one is
     bound to turn up.
         You have chosen wisely in your location. Enjoy the beauty
     of the area, its scenery, its rivers and its fish. Tight lines! WY      P.O. Box 1290 • 37 Canyon Street

          you enter Island Park south of West Yellowstone, or by
          ascending the sloping sides of the ancient caldera outside
          Ashton, Idaho, you’ll immediately find yourself in a unique
          setting of lakes, woods, rivers, meadows and mountains
          lightly sprinkled with ranches, summer homes and fishing
          lodges. The fishing in Island Park is legendary and the
          Henry’s Fork of the Snake is the crown jewel. Other bodies
          of water include Henry’s Lake and the Island Park Reservoir.

     SNOWCOACH
        While snowmobiles may be the most popular means of
     seeing the country, a ride in a snowcoach is equally scenic —
     and a whole lot warmer! Using modern, converted vans on
     snow tracks or the original Bombardier, snowcoaches are a
     popular method to view Yellowstone in the winter. They
     offer an enclosed and heated option, and include a
     naturalist guide as chauffeur. In the quiet of a snowcoach,
     your guide will have an opportunity to entertain you with
     stories that bring the history of Yellowstone alive.
        Some companies offer opportunities for you to be
     “dropped” from the snowcoach to trek out on your skis or
     snowshoes and reconnect with your tour later on. Full-day
     tours to Old Faithful and Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone
     areas are both available, as are private charters.
