Here are just a few of the many pictures i took throughout my hike this summer. We covered many different parts of the Yellowstone to Yukon corridor running from Montana north to Yukon, Canada. I managed to fish quite a bit and provide some fresh wild trout for some dinner and breakfast deserts. A lot of the water towards Canada wasn't fishy though because of the high alpine climates. All in all it was a fantastic time and an amazing learning/FISHING experience. I didn't take many fishing pictures myself, but did snap a lot of river and scenery shots. My friends from the trip got some awesome action shots though. In all i probably took about 300 pictures, so you guys are just getting a small percentage. Hope you enjoy.
Most of us fish our whole lives..not knowing its not the fish that we are after.

Awesome photos! Thanks for posting.

In the first "Montana high" photo, is that spot heavily grazed, or are there areas with grass that short on its own?

The ones in "Wild Flowers" are fireweed, one of the most common, iconic flowers in Alaska.

Jess,

I agree with Orn...Looking forward to part two with your smiling face and some fish! :) I did a similar route back in 1973...Looking at your pics reminds me that I still don't believe what I saw. The area is mind blowing. I'm glad you had such a good trip. I was further west and haven't seen Banff yet. My wife and I are hoping to see it soon.

Wonderful looking trip Jess...Now back to school! :)

Wonderful trip Jesse. Thanks for sharing.

That apparently close-cropped grass looks like mountain tundra to me. When I first saw it here in CO I called it "God's golf course".

Jess...

I forgot to tell you I'm working on a re-visit out west for next year. The boys in the Michigan Fly Fishing Club go out for a week each early August and I've been on the waiting list and have just been informed they are expanding it...

My wife has a second cousin that lives in Bozeman and I'm thinking about driving out myself, fishing, and having her fly out near the end of it and do some sight seeing together.

They stay at a place near West Yellowstone...I'll keep you posted once I get my you-know-what together. Once I get a confirm I'll start tying for the trip...It will help keep me busy this winter.

I'll tie up some of my "secret" Callibaetis flies and we could meet at the Railroad Ranch or chase "Gulpers" on Hebgen...:) Maybe I still have an ounce of rock-and-roll left in me and we could visit the Mighty Madison!

Spectacular photos there, Jesse! Looking forward to Part 2 as well to see what all you caught out there.

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Jason - the only animals that graze the waters you see from that first pictures are the wild elk, deer, bear, and the various other animals. No cattle grazing up there or anything like that. We did run into a group of lama guides, however, but that is kind of rare and a once and while occurrence. It might have to do with the year round colder climates and weather..maybe?

Spence - I'm a graduated man brother no more school for me.

And thanks for the comments guys it really was spectacular. Once i get more fishing shots sent to me from some group members they will go up as well.
