Meadows Fishing Pack Trips

Fish the Yellowstone Cutthroat Spawn with a guide in the Teton Wilderness 

Get away from bumper-to-bumper fly fishing. Our overnight fly fishing horseback pack trips take you to remote wilderness where you'll let the cool, fish-filled waters of the famous Yellowstone River or Thorofare River ripple around your waders.

In the unsurpassed beauty of the Teton wilderness and Yellowstone Meadows, you'll connect with the serenity of vast, spectacular scenery and abundant wildlife in places that are just as well-suited to sightseeing as fishing.

Are you ready for the fishing trip of a lifetime?
