Slough Creek Cutthroat 2Slough Creek Trip

The northwest corner is now fishing! This is my favorite part of the park, and July is the best time to fish it. Lamar, Soda Butte, Slough creek. These waters are fabled fishing folklore and for good reason. Nothing like catching large native cutthroats on a dry fly.

 Buddy and I took a trip up here to try our luck and trick these picky fish on PMD and Drake patterns. We hiked into the second meadow. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful hike. By the time we got to the water, the great fishing was just a bonus.

 

The Flying Pig fishing guides know this water well.  Give us a call (888-792-9193) or come into the store! Slough Creek meadows is a special spot and a trip of a lifetime.
