Yellowstone’s Iconic Wildlife and Legendary Fly Fishing!

Yellowstone Wild is proud to now offer a unique day of wildlife watching and fly fishing in Yellowstone National Park. We begin our day watching a Yellowstone sunrise and searching for some of Yellowstone’s amazing wildlife. The wildlife that makes Yellowstone an iconic world destination for wildlife watching is most active at sunrise and the following few hours. As the sun warms the air, and animals seek the shade, we will switch our focus to the world class trout streams of Yellowstone National Park to fly fish for beautiful Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout. This tour can be tailored for anyone, from first time fly fishers to experienced anglers. Your guide is not only a knowledgeable naturalist, but also a passionate fly-fisherman and a skilled instructor. 

Yellowstone provides some of the finest and most rewarding dry fly fishing anywhere. In fact, the Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout is famous for taking big flies off the surface, which makes them so much fun to fly fish for! This tour normally runs longer than 8 hours, so plan to be out all day!

 We provide spotting scopes and binoculars for the wildlife watching as well as fly rods, flies and all the necessary fishing gear. You must purchase your own National Park Service fishing license. Newcomers to this artful sport are given instructive one-on-one lesions. Newcomers and experts alike are taken to our favorite fishing holes for a unique and authentic Yellowstone experience!

Excellent Yellowstone Experience

Emil McCain provided an excellent and very memorable day for our family. We visited Yellowstone for the first time and were a bit intimidated by the park. Emil took the time to get to know what our family wanted to see and learn about Yellowstone. Emil not only showed us the sights we wanted to see but also educated us about the park, the wildlife, the geology and many of the issues facing the park. He bonded immediately with our 10 year old son and 12 year old daughter. In fact by the end of our day Emil felt like one of the family. Emil was in constant contact with other wild life experts as we spent the day viewing bears, bison, elk, osprey, yellow bellied marmots, big horn sheep and bald eagles. Emil provided us with a healthy brunch and top notch transportation. Emil also provided top notch optics to view and photograph the wild life. We would strongly recommend Emil and Yellowstone Wild as the best option to explore Yellowstone. Also, we really recommend the optional photo package. Emil provided photographs of the wild life that we never would have gotten on our own. The day with Emil was the highlight of our Yellowstone trip and even paid off the next few days as we explored locations/hikes suggested by Emil.

Amazing day of wildlife viewing.

My husband and I spent the day with Evan and it was better than we could have imagined. Evan is a very talented guide and an enjoyable and knowledgeable person to spend the day with. He took us to parts of Yellowstone we never would have thought to venture to. We saw a ton of wildlife and met some interesting people along the way as well. We learned so much about the park and the wildlife, it truly was an amazing day. This was the highlight of our trip to Yellowstone.

Wolves, grizzly bears, rutting elk and a great day with a nice guy.

Our expectations were surpassed. Emil is a great guy who knows his stuff about the Park and it’s features as well as the animals that live in it. He also knows how to make the days experience comfortable, exciting and memorable. Emil is that rare combination of interesting expert and genuinely nice guy. He asked us what we wanted to see and then he went about delivering it in a way that left us speechless. I’ll never forget the sight and sounds of the Wapiti Lake wolf pack forming up to chase a herd of elk across the Hayden Valley. We watched a young grizzly bear named Snow rip up and eat her lunch of tubers and we watched and listened to bugling elk at the end of their rut. What a great day. What a great guy.

Yellowstone Wild

What a FANTASTIC and AMAZING experience!! Evan is the consumate expert and host!!!! You should NOT try to see wildlife @ Yellowstone without a tour and IF you are lucky enough to land a tour w/ Evan, consider yourself among the lucky few! We savored every minute- we saw Bison, Grizzlies- yes plural-an entire wolfpack: the junction butte pack , and their pups, longhorn sheep,mountain goats and other animals as well. We had a spectacular time in a SPECTACULAR place (LAMARR VALLEY!) with a Spectacular person! Don’t MISS the opportunity!! We will be back and will be in touch to monitor the status of ‘Ol White Claw’ w/Evan. Memories for a lifetime!!
