Yellowstone Adventure Final Update

Greetings from beautiful Jackson Hole,


Wow! What an incredible ending to the trip it has been. Yesterday was spent rafting the beautiful Snake River canyon, which provides both amazing scenery and thrilling whitewater. This adventure will surely be remembered for a while, as the canyon is known around the west as some of the best whitewater around. Today our group teamed up with WorldCast anglers, a premier fly fishing outfit. We met our guides at Orvis this morning and hit the water shortly thereafter. When the day was over, our anglers came back with many battle stories of the fish they caught. It undoubtedly was a fitting end to the the trip. The great day of fishing was washed down with a great meal at a local Jackson Hole burger spot.  We will now head to our tents for our last night in Yellowstone.  DSCN0199 It is hard to believe that our 15 days out west is quickly coming to a close. We have had so much fun watching our group of guys grow both as fishermen and independent conservationists. Cal, Robbie, and I can only hope to see this group again next summer ready to keep fishing. Until then, have a great rest of the summer and school year!

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.
