guided fishing 

We offer guided stream-side walking-wading trips on the South Fork of the Shoshone River as it runs through the ranch.  The South Fork is a classic Rocky Mountain river with its braided, meandering channel, pools and riffles, and cottonwood tree-lined banks.  It's also a world-class trout stream.  There's more good water here than a person can fish in a week.  This stretch, fishable nearly year-round, is known for its brown trout and Yellowstone cutthroat.  You'll also catch the occasional rainbow trout and brook trout.

the art 

Stream-side walking-wading trips focus on the art of catching wild trout, understanding the timing and types of insect hatches and how they affect angler success, and on the wild and scenic beauty of the South Fork valley.  In addition to providing all the equipment you need, our guide provides expert instruction on an individual level to anglers of any skill level.

private water

There's one more important thing to know about fishing here.  You're fishing private water.  As such, the South Fork of the Shoshone is one of the most lightly fished rivers in Yellowstone country.  Although you may encounter moose, griz, elk, or a bald eagle, you might not see another angler all day.
