This map covers over 100 river miles of the Yellowstone River beginning at Yellowstone Lake inside Yellowstone NP, then flowing downstream north through Livingston. This map contains all public fishing access areas, rapids, rapid classifications, campgrounds, boat put in locations, parking areas and BLM Public Land areas. Also included are insect hatch chart and float charts.

Yellowstone is longest river in Montana. Due to the length of this river, many anglers struggle to determine what section should be their focal point.

Our map covers arguably the more fishable region. The map has basically 3 fishing sections. From south to north, the first section is in Yellowstone National Park. Anglers looking for easy access should make their way to the waters between Yellowstone Lake and the Upper Falls. This section of river only contains Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout. In the next section in Black Canyon, a little north of Gardiner, has easy fishing and less fishing pressure in general thanks to its more remote location. Black Canyon is also the best location for browns and rainbow trout. The section that runs from the Carbella Access Site to Livingston receives the heaviest fishing pressure but is very productive, particularly during the summer months.
