Description

  • The widest array of voices ever collected in a book about fishing Yellowstone; interviews with more than a hundred men and women — from teenagers to octogenarians — each of them sharing stories about their favorite spots in the park.
  • The most up-to-date information about dozens of park fisheries, also the latest tips, techniques, fly patterns, best times and best hatches.
  • Wisdom and advice from a collection of Yellowstone anglers ranging from knowledgable guides — including Craig Mathews, Richard Parks, Molly Semenik, John Bailey, Alice Owsley and Bob Jacklin — to savvy locals and visitors. Also fresh insights from notable people including authors Tom McGuane and Doug Peacock; ranger Shelton Johnson, who was featured in Ken Burns’ National Parks series on PBS; Vice President Dick Cheney and President Jimmy Carter. 
  • Best spots for Yellowstone cutthroat, westslope cutthroat, Snake River finespotted cutthroat, grayling, rainbows, cuttbows, brown trout, brook trout, mountain whitefish, and lake trout
  • The ecologic history of trout in Yellowstone, from the natural colonization that began after the last ice age through the intense fish stocking done by park managers for decades starting in the late 1800s. This book gives the most thorough explanation yet of one of the park’s greatest environmental catastrophes, the decimation of native cutthroats in Yellowstone Lake due to illegally stocked, non-native lake trout, whirling disease and drought. There are also new details about the restoration of native Westslope cutthroat fisheries in Yellowstone. 
  • New anecdotes about other park wildlife, including grizzlies, elk, wolves, moose, eagles, cougars, osprey, otters, rattlesnakes and bison — even bigfoot.
  • Unpublished details about perhaps the greatest human drama in Yellowstone history; an incredible 1877 encounter between a pair of early park tourists — one of them a man who was shot three times and lived — and a band of fleeing Nez Perce Indians, including revered peacemaker Chief Joseph.
