Fishing Report Updated October 31, 2023

This Yellowstone Park fishing report is valid from November 1 through the Thursday before Memorial Day, 2024.

Yellowstone Park closes to fishing at sunset on October 31, or about two hours after I’m writing this. The old closing date of sunset on the first Sunday in November is no longer in effect.

It’s a shame the park’s closed this upcoming week, because the Gardner, Firehole, Gibbon, and Madison Rivers would likely fish great. A little Park Service bird told me there are talks of opening the park season year-round, at least generally. I assume there would be seasonal spawning closures in cutthroat streams. Anyway, we can look to the future and hope. Who wants to fish the Gardner with me in April in 2025 or whenever???
