Re: Yellowstone

I'm going to be in the park for a few weeks this summer to fish. I've heard the fishing at Slough Creek is amazing. Does anyone have a recommendation about either pebble Creek Campground or Slough creek campground?

Re: Yellowstone

Mattador, I've never stayed at either one, but Slough Creek Campground, of course, sits along the river so it's right where you want to be it sounds like. Both campgrounds are fairly small. They have fire pits, vault toilets and bear boxes. They both fill up quickly due to the nearby fishing. I've never heard how the fishing is at Pebble Creek but I imagine it's good. I've heard the same thing as you on Slough Creek, that the fishing is very good. I have a friend that backpacks into the remote camp sites along the river several miles to the northeast. They make the trip about the 3rd week in July every year and always seem to catch fish.
I know that at Slough Creek only a handful of the sites are in the trees, the rest are out in the open. A few sit right along the river.

Make sure that if anyone in your party is tent camping that you don't bring fishy smelling clothes into your tent.

Enjoy our time in Yellowstone!

Mike

Yup... and beavers and muskrats and pelicans and ducks and swans and elk... it was a nifty morning, but too dim and far away to get any decent pics.

Re: Yellowstone

Mattador,

This may be to late if you already made your trip but don't neglect fishing Soda Butte right along the road by Slough Creek trailhead. Lots of Bison and fisherman but it's an excellent fishery. When you hike back into Slough Creek don't get to enticed by the first meadow. Hike back to the 2nd or 3rd and start fishing. You can always fish the 1st meadow on the way out if you have time.

Good luck. I'm headed there this week.
