Our home sits on a one acre lot along the best fly fishing wade section of the river! It is a short, scenic 25 minute drive to the West entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Fish the legendary rivers of the Madison, the Gallatin, the Yellowstone, the Firehole the Gibbon and the Henry's Fork all from one destination.

Just outside is a bench for changing, hooks for waders and a hose to wash off.
