THE FLY FISHING CHRONICLES OF YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK - Part 1
Approximately three million years ago the 3,472 square mile area that we call Yellowstone National Park was the site of some very violent volcanic activity. This action ultimately gave rise to the geysers, hot springs, mud pots and fumaroles. During the past 300,000 years three different Glaciers covered the region. These also contributed to the sculpturing of Yellowstone, which in turn attracts millions of people to the Park each year. Though many travel to view the natural attractions some travel to fish. In 1872 President Ulysses S. Grant signed the bill that created Yellowstone National Park. The northeast quadrant of the park contains the Lamar River and Soda Butte Creek, arguably two of the finest fisheries in the park.
