THE FLY FISHING CHRONICLES OF YELLOWSTONE (part 11)
Over the years I have had some great adventures fishing the waters of Yellowstone Lake; as a matter of fact 50% of the total angler use in the Park is centered on Yellowstone Lake.
Yellowstone Lake is the largest lake in North America sits at 7,732 feet above sea level and covers 136 square miles with 110 miles of shoreline of which 30 miles is accessible by motor vehicle. The lake is normally frozen over by December and normally thaws during late May to early June, and during the winter the ice cover can be as deep as three feet except in the areas of the hot springs. The deepest place in the lake is 390 feet with an average depth of 139 feet.
