This trip is later in the season, offering cooler temperatures little or no mosquitoes, and beautiful fall weather. The aspens may begin to turn and the bull elk begin to bugle. This fishing trip by horseback explores the Lamar River Valley. The Lamar River Valley within Yellowstone National Park is the most common place for watching wolves, bear, and American bison interact. From where the Lamar River leaves the upper Lamar Canyon and flows to join the Yellowstone, visitors can see spectacular wild life interactions on a daily basis from the safety of their cars. However, for the more adventurous, ride with us up the upper Lamar and see the wildlife in a more intimate setting as buffalo stroll down the trail 100 yards from our campsite, bears forage on the hillsides, and wolves dog trot along in search of prey.
This trip is an adventure fisherman’s paradise with scenery as wild as the animals. Our trail starts at the Soda Butte Trailhead where the Lamar River meets the road.
We’ll travel up the Lamar River and ford Cache Creek. Beyond this, we will cross Calfee Creek traveling up to our first camp on the Lamar River where you’ll find the fishing excellent. Fishing the Lamar rivals that of Slough Creek. Big deep pools abundant with healthy size cutthroat trout are scattered throughout the river. Actively feeding fish and nice hatches characterize this fishing trip. After two nights fishing our first camp, we’ll move up the Lamar about a mile and a half to another camp and some new waters to fish for another two nights. There is also opportunity to see where the river has cut through a petrified forest with a number of trees easily visible in the river and on the opposing hillside.
After fishing for most of four days we’ll head back down the river to the trailhead. We’ll stop for lunch to rest and enjoy the scenery before riding the rest of the way out. our goal is to hit the trailhead between 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. to allow you time to get back to some sort of civilization for your evening meal.
