The author "tells the story" of each location thru the eyes of a variety of fishermen and women who've fished the each location. He also helps us understand how the illegal introduction of Lake Trout into Yellowstone Lake have adversely impacted the fishery of the entire area. Still, he gives us good tips on the best seasons to fish each area, flies that should work and how to access each area.

I have fished and have done botanical research in Yellowstone starting in 1974. I was a park ranger in the Tetons during the 70's and even met my wife at Madison Junction when I was up to fish the Firehole. So I have either fished many of the 50 places or was to some of these places as part of a field trip. That said, there were many places I never knew about or knew of but didn't realize the fishing potential. But what I really liked about the book was it was more or less 50 short stories. The people and topics were a mix of information I never knew or just fun hearing what these people had to say. I liked this book because it a good read and not a technical book that I would have to dog ear pages or try to remember facts. It has brought back many memories of places I fished and some I but couldn't remember by name after all these years and there it was as one of the 50. Not to speak of fortifying the fact that Yellowstone truly is the USA's best trout country.

"An Insider's Guide to the 50 Best Places," is basically a series of short stories interrupted by different waters and a list of recommended flies. While there is some good information within, this book lacks the technical details necessary to serve serious fly fishers. The book covers a variety of rivers, creeks, and sloughs in Yellowstone that provides a background for the beginning fisher in the Park. I wish there were maps, color photos, and details on access; this book is a 'basic information only' publication.

Great book for an outsider like me (I live in Chile, south america) that take a one month journey to the states and spend one week on the Yellowstone National Park... Avoid the guessing work and make the most of your time fishing with this guide.

I really enjoyed this different approach to the "Best" places to fish in YNP. Each of us would have a different choice, and there in was the pleasure of reading about other people, not just the author's choices.
However, I did deduct one start for the the repetitive issue of Lake trout in Yellowstone Lake. I do agree it has been disastrous, and I support the removal process, but I did not need to be pummeled about the situation.

Any enjoyable read before fishing in this dramatic park. I will be using it in 6 months. The interviewees give interest to these areas, some of which you and I will never see except in winter dreams, and some of which may only exist in the past. Basic, but not detailed directions. A good emphasis on the critters that live there and may resent your intrusion. A fun read, even if you end up with a guide who costs more than the book. Let's see how well it works!

It worked pretty well. We were there in late June and used it to fish several locations on the Madison near the west entrance. No back country work though, and not the best time of year, but was rewarded with a nice 17" brown on a caddis.

I loved this book. Great beta on where and how to fish the Park, but in addition it is filled with historical anicdotes and stories from anglers who spent many years fishing there. A really interesting read and great resource.

The tips and fly pattern suggestions are worth the cost. If you are planning a fishing trip to YNP pick this one up.
