Yellowstone National Park Fishing Regulations





Yellowstone National Park is a fantastic place to spend time on the rivers, lakes and creeks fishing. Within the boundaries of Yellowstone are some of the best blue ribbon trout fisheries in America. They include but are not limited to: Yellowstone Lake and River, Madison, Firehole, Gibbon, and Lamar Rivers, Slough and Soda Butte Creeks. There are many many more lakes and creeks to drop a line into.

It must be remembered that the main import and purpose of the fish in Yellowstone is to support the wildlife of this fantastic ecosystem: otters, eagles, bears, osprey, and on. That is the reason for the regulations, to keep this system working for those that need it and provide some fun, food and relaxation for the rest of us. Take care and enjoy, and may your time in Yellowstone build fond memories with family and friends that will last a lifetime!
