Hosted Yellowstone Adventure

Hosted Yellowstone Adventure

Hosted by LFFE founder Will Lillard and Virginia Outside founder Tee Clarkson in partnership with Tailwaters Fly Fishing CO

We met Virginia Outside owner Tee Clarkson years ago. Ever since then we have been partnering with Tee on East Coast trips during our off seasons. When Tee introduced us to his friends at Tailwaters Fly Fishing Co. the idea for an annual hosted trip to Yellowstone was born. Tee’s hosted trip will venture deep into the world famous Lamar Valley of Yellowstone National Park. After arriving in Bozeman, MT the group will head through the northeast entrance of the park and trek to the campsite in the heart of the Lamar Valley. Soda Butte Creek and the Lamar River wind their way through the meadows of the valley, providing endless cut banks full of native Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout. As an added bonus, the group will make the trek into Slough Creek to chase some of the biggest cutthroat in the park. This backcountry section of river lies between 4 and 9 miles from the nearest road and only gets fished by the most adventurous anglers. On our way back to Bozeman we will cap off our trip with a float fishing trip down the Yellowstone River.

Lillard Fly Fishing Expeditions was started in 2010 as a graduate thesis for my Master's Degree in Environmental Conservation Education at NYU. The operating premise was simple - by coupling amazing wilderness fly fishing camps for teens with environmental education and service learning we can help inspire future generations of fly fishing conservationists. We have been growing our unique list of trips and experiences ever since.

When it comes to choosing a summer program for your teen the options are endless. For the teen who loves to fish, be outside, and has a strong sense of adventure we have made the choice easy. We are the leader in teen fly fishing adventures and are dedicated to providing the best backcountry fly fishing experience with opportunities for teens to engage in leadership training, community service, and backcountry camping.
