Yellow Sallies on the Yellowstone River

Falcon’s Ledge guide, Grant Bench spends a day on Utah’s Yellowstone River fishing for rainbows and brook trout. The Yellow Sallies were hatching and the trout were looking up!

The Other Yellowstone River

Wait, there’s another Yellowstone River besides the one that flows through Yellowstone National Park? Apparently so and it’s in Utah.

Utah’s Yellowstone River flows off of the south slope of the Uinta Mountains in northeastern Utah. It’s a freestone river that holds abundant populations of brook, rainbow, cutthroat, and a few brown trout, and is the local favorite go to stream for anglers after the Grand Slam (four species in one day). Not only that, it’s beautiful to boot.

Man I could use a day like that right about now!
