Re: Yellowstone Trip
Went to Yellowstone the 1st week of June in 2005. It is AWESOME. I fished the Firehole River and a few other small streams of the park. It will be crowded in July/Aug, so if you like being by yourself I recommend trying some of the secluded streams that require a short hike. Be prepared, the difference it altitude is killer on the hike. thinner air will take your breath fairly quickly. I used West Yellowstone, MT as my home for the week.
It is a wonderful experience. It is not uncommon to be fishing and have a herd of 50-100 Buffalo cross the river 20-30 yards from you, espically when fishing the Firehole. Wildlife is everywhere just respect nature and you'll enjoy it.
Caught some nice fish too, if you like to fish the smokies just wait!!!
The fishing is different, but it is great to fish the "big water".
