CACHE CREEK/HELLROARING CREEK--YNP

After fishing just about every well known river/creek in the park, we decided to get away from the crowds and hike back in a few miles and hit a couple of creeks that see minimal fishing pressure. Actually the days we fished both of the creeks we didn't see one other fisherman, that's hard to come by in Yellowstone!

CACHE CREEK
This creek had some awesome scenery, it was heavily wooded on both sides of the creek which makes you wonder what could be watching you! We arrived around 2pm at the creek so we only got about 4 hours of fishing in before we needed to leave, to avoid hiking in the dark.






The fishing was great I lost count on how many Cutthroat I caught, most were feisty little guys but there were a few decent fish worth taking pictures of.



The biggest one I caught in the creek!


This creek has to be my second favorite in the park, hiking, adventure, and the fishing is great!

HELLROARING CREEK
This creek may be a bit more well known in the park than some of the other back country creeks, the hike crosses over the Yellowstone river with an impressive suspension bridge. The creek itself is more of a pocket water fishery with little fish hiding in every hole! Once again the fishing here was non stop catch and release, all in all just a fun day of fishing with some beautiful scenery all around!






Some of the fish caught on the creek.....





I would most likely not venture back to the creek; but don't let that take anything from this little gem, if you like no crowds and your rod bent this is the spot!
