River or lake. . .guided adventure or on-your own. . .free (with license, of course) or “pay-for-play”—Cody Country takes a back seat to no area when it comes to fun-producing fishing opportunities.
If you are in Cody, you must visit the worlds first National Park.
The world’s first national park contains more than two million acres of steaming geysers, crystalline lakes, thundering waterfalls, panoramic vistas, and a remarkable diversity of mammals, birds and fish. Since being declared a national park in 1872 by the US Congress, Yellowstone National Park has attracted many from every state and country, speaking different languages…and they are proud of the treasure that is Yellowstone.
The North and South Forks of the Shoshone River, the Clark’s Fork of the Yellowstone River and the legendary rivers of Yellowstone National Park—Madison, Firehole, Lamar, Gibbon and the Yellowstone itself—are reason enough to visit Cody Country to test your angling skills. Add it all up and the area offers more than 2,000 miles of fishing waters where brook, rainbow, cutthroat and brown trout and grayling will provide the challenge.
If lake fishing is more to your liking, Buffalo Bill Reservoir and a myriad of high country lakes provide all the challenge you’re looking for.
