Yellowstone Hosted Update

Greetings from the Yellowstone Hosted Adventure, 

It is hard to believe we are already half of the way through our trip. Time flies when you have a great group and good fishing. 

We have focused our fishing in the Lamar Valley of Yellowstone National Park. These rivers don't usually come into prime shape until mid or late July. This year everything is early, and our timing is perfect. The favorite section for the group has been the Slough Creek Meadows. These backcountry meadows are famous for their big cutthroat that eat dry flies. Our group makes quick work of the hike in, and everyone has caught some of these beautiful fish. 

Tonight we will head into Livingston, MT for some burgers, ice cream, and fireworks. After one more day of fishing in the park we will do our float on the Yellowstone River before everyone heads home on the 7th. We will send another update after departure day with a link to all the pictures from the trip.

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.
