About us

West Yellowstone Fly Fishing Guides

Greater Yellowstone is the home to some of the best guides in the business. We are proud to call many of them friends and colleagues. At Lost Fork Outfitters, we have dedicated our lives to the sport, we are career guides, not students spending a summer “guiding.” Our experience, passion for the pursuit and the beautiful places and creatures that come with it, will enhance your experience and your appreciation of fly fishing.

Our Specialties

Fishing Experiences for All Levels

No matter if you have years of experience or you’ve never fished before, we are here to instruct and guide you through a successful fly fishing trip. We welcome kids, seniors, families, singles, first-timers and old hands. Different languages, abilities, and backgrounds are no problem. Our goal is to exceed your expectations.

Yellowstone Fishing Trips

The beauty and majesty of Yellowstone National Park offers a unique setting for fly fishing trips. The variety of fishing options in Yellowstone sets it apart from any other fly fishing destination in the world. From swinging streamers to migratory brown trout on the Madison, to fishing attractor dry flies to four inch brook trout.

Expert Knowledge

We strive to pass on our passion and respect for the area we are so lucky to call home. We are more than fly fishing guides, we are stewards of the ecosystem. We practice catch and release and fish exclusively with barbless hooks.
