time for us to go have fun this summer.
you have received great advice for all.
the only thing i can add much to Scout's chagrin is if you get the bug to buy more fly rods go to a 3wt for rock creek and it back county.
Maybe be 4wt.
I have all three and what I showed you was a 3wt.

welcome Fishing4Gold

so for animal viewing that are not on the typical tourist menu.

need to be at dawn in Lamar valley
look for a few cars with a 2m radio antena on the roof - Primarily a CR-V Blue in Color with MT plates.
Rick drives that car and is the Technician biologist that is tracking and monitoring the wolves in the park.
once you have seen the car, look on the hill sides for the team.  Rick is in uniform but the team is not and they have radios.
they will be able to tell you where the wolves are.  Lately they have had some bears on the wolf kills.
you can also track the movements of wolves and some grizs via FB  "legend of Lamar Valley"  they track them well and post pictures of the wolves.
Also you can scout the team the night before.

there is also Hayden valley
lots of Grizs and a wolf pack there too.

all that is on the other side of the park for you.

There are day hikes in Lamar valley that are close to hitting post.
that is the big parking lot with bathroom east of the Yellowstone Institute.
be sure you have bear spray (one for every two people minimum).
the hike takes you in along the Lamar river and you can fish it along the way.  Barbless catch and release for the cutthroat.  All other you must keep - please review the regulations as those were last years.
I like to fish Soda butte creek and I fish it every year two or three days.
in August you would want to fish it before 1PM and after 5PM to get more hook-ups.
best place to fish Soda butte creek is between the Lamar river confluence and pebble creek (the campground).
look at the map before you go.
east of hitching post and before Soda Butte itself, there is a bridge for your day hike and for fishing.
It is best to cross the bridge and fish from the south side.
take PMD, Yellow sally, EH grey and black.  hoppers and beetles will do well in August. Not sure about the nymphs sorry.

Now that you are on the river, be aware of your surroundings.
making noise will spook the fish but keep the animal aware of your presence.
along Soda butte creek there will be small "islands" of freestone.  fish where the water goes into the main channel from the back channels.
also fish along the edge of the opposite side of where you are.  deep medium fast pool is the key.

if you see a bear well don't sh@t your pants that makes it worse (just kidding).
they will leave you alone and rangers will be there within 10 minutes to pull you out if you have not left.
if a buffalo is coming at you, stay on the freestone and go in a 90 degree path away from the animal.
buffalo do not want to wade on the freestone and attack you on the freestone island.  Its bad for them, they split a hoof and they become dinner for wolves and bears.
do not follow at Path in the dirt if they come at you.  that is their path.

please call me or email me if you need more info
also if you get into car or camper trouble in the park reach out to me.

sorry I can give more but that is it for now.

great pictures and report  :clap:

Mcgee Dude
no problem, just call and will arrange a meeting so you can borrow what you need.


how is the beer brewing hobby coming along?

wshawkins, and Gary C are super assets on this board for fly fishing.
I use a 3 wt or 4wt at rock creek or the back country streams.
the 5 - 6 wt will work great on Crowley and the owens (the wind swept flats).

what ever you have already, stop by sometime if you still work in Torrance and borrow a 3 or 4 wt 2 piece I purchased for teaching others to fish with. Try that with your other rod as wshawkins and gary c talked about.

fast rods are great to start with and I stuck with them.  once you master them you can hit at 10-70 ft with precision.
but fishing with other rods is also fun.

I used a 2wt on  rock creek in the back country and at the west fork of the san gabriel.  those little sardines bent the rod in half.

it all about fun, and at the end of the day, just enjoy your time on the river, creek or lake with what you have.
most light weight rods will not break even when you hook a 3lbs fish.
