The upper Yellowstone/Thorofare affords world class fishing for wild Yellowstone cutthroat trout. These fish will range in length from 16 to 25 inches (Note: a 6 weight rod is necessary). The younger adolescent fish remain in Yellowstone Lake during the spring spawn. Normally good numbers of fish are seen daily. The average catch per day per person is 6 to 12.
Guests driving to Wyoming should arrive in Dubois or Jackson the day before their scheduled trip. Guests flying should arrive in Jackson. On the morning of the trips first day we meet at the Turpin Meadows trailhead 44 miles from Jackson on the south boundary of the Teton Wilderness. From here all personnel and gear is transported by horse and mule. Comfortable tent camps are supplied. Sleeping tents are 10×10 with lots of room to stand plus cots with foam pads. A dining fly or tent will be used and there is a full time cook preparing all you can eat meals. Showers simply consist of solar showers hung over head. The river is also refreshing.
This trip into the upper Yellowstone is not without physical and mental demands. Depending on where fish are concentrated it is 19 miles or 24 miles to our camping site. During the horseback ride a short break can be taken every 2-3 hours.
