About the Yellowstone River

The Yellowstone River is the longest river in the state of Montana. Throughout its entire length, from its beginnings in Yellowstone National Park to its confluence with the Missouri River in North Dakota, the river is free from any dams. For First Cast Outfitters, this creates over 120 miles of blue-ribbon trout fishing, beginning at Yellowstone National Park and continuing on to Columbus, Montana.

The most commonly floated stretch of river is from Gardiner, Montana, at the north entrance of Yellowstone National Park, to Big Timber, Montana where the Boulder River joins. The stretch of the river will take you through the scenic Paradise Valley and offer breathtaking views, wildlife and world class trout fishing. With a healthy population of rainbow, brown and Yellowstone cutthroat trout, anglers will have no trouble keeping a bent rod throughout the day.

Special Stay and Fish packages are being offered for those wishing to stay in Paradise Valley. With a number of lodging options available, we are happy to help you find the accommodations that meet your parties needs.
