(August 16-20) Bechler Fishing (6 Day) $2100.00 per person
Try this for your Yellowstone vacation on horseback. Magnificent views of the Teton Mountain Range, spectacular water falls, and 24 inch Rainbow Trout. This trip takes you to the southwestern corner of Yellowstone National Park.
This area is acclaimed for wide meadows containing tall grasses and shallow sloughs with spectacular views of the Teton Mountains to the south, and the Madison Plateau to the north. To the east is the rim of the mysterious Pitchstone Plateau, a place with only few sketchy watering holes making travel across it nearly impossible.
The Bechler region is called the Cascade Corner. Waterfalls drop from the plateaus into the meadows. The canyon is spectacular, one water fall after another broken in between by cascades and cataracts. When we ride up the canyon we will stop and feel the mist from some of the falls and you will have the opportunity to take some very exciting photos. After this we will ford the river at a number of places, leading the pack string up to their bellies through the clear cold waters.
The Bechler River has some great fishing. The big deep slow bends of the Bechler River have great habitat for the large Rainbow Trout that lurk in its shadowy depth. Float a grasshopper, which at this time of year are hopping and flying everywhere, over these glassy waters and you\'ll have the fight of your life on your hands. If you want to fish for more than Rainbow Trout, you might fish for Brook Trout in Mountain Ash Creek, or fish for Cut Throats up in the Bechler Cascades, near the famous Ferris Fork Hot Pot.
Besides fishing, the Bechler region is filled with swimming holes for the family or just friends. There are hot springs, warm water falls, and comfortable pools to swim in. Whether cooling off on a hot summer day or taking a warming dip on a cool fall day, the water is always inviting.
