SPECIAL FLIES OF YELLOWSTONE COUNTRY (part 3)
Soda Butte Creek is one of major tributaries to Lamar River. Indeed its junction to the Lamar is as popular and crowded as "Junction Pool" on Madison River (where Firehole and Gibbon Rivers merge). Food sources, effective flies, holding waters, and trout actions are very much the same as for the Lamar. The only one difference is the volume is far smaller. Yet this doesn't mean the sizes of the cutthroat are smaller than those in the Lamar. Indeed one can be surprised by the sizes and quality of cutthroat on the Soda Butte.
