Fellow Parks Fly Shop guide Ben Jewell and I headed out early this morning to West Yellowstone and the Gallatin Mountain Range to fish Fan Creek. The hike in was beautiful with; high mountain peaks, lodgepole pine trees and the many wild flowers surrounding the valley. We hiked in 4 miles to the second backwoods campsite and started fishing the winding meadow stream. The fishing was slow. Maybe the water was to cold or to skinny but the fish just weren't there. After fishing a mile upstream we decided to hike back down valley and give-it-a-go. We had better luck there taking some nice cutbows. It was a fun day, fishing new water and spending time with a good friend.
