Welcome to the Parks' Fly Shop website. Our shop is located in Gardiner, Montana, within sight of the Yellowstone River and a quarter-mile from the north entrance of Yellowstone National Park. All the prime water within the Park, the blue-ribbon portion of the Yellowstone River, and many great private lakes and spring creeks are located within an easy drive, making us the most centrally-located fly shop and outfitter in the region.

The rivers and lakes of the Yellowstone region have been our obsessions and the guiding forces behind our business since 1953. We stock only flies & gear useful within fifty miles of our door, we designed and/or tie around half the flies we stock, and our guide service is a local one, focused on Yellowstone National Park, the Yellowstone River system, and portions of the upper Missouri River drainage rather than on fly fishing Montana as a whole. Our tight focus gives us unparalleled knowledge of local fisheries.

Give us a call at (406) 848-7314 to set up a guided Montana or Yellowstone fishing trip or check on river conditions. You can also contact us via the e-mail links at the bottom of each page of our site. We look forward to introducing you to the great fly fishing Yellowstone and southwest Montana have to offer.

As you explore our site, be aware that it's very text-heavy. We offer a lot of information on almost every page, and we did so intentionally. If you're the type of person who likes to dive into travel information, grab a cup of coffee and be ready to spend three or four hours going through our site, and please enjoy it!

Richard Parks is Montana outfitter #327. Walter Wiese is Montana outfitter #22001. We are licensed to guide in Yellowstone National Park, waters in the state of Montana under general regulations, and in the Gallatin National Forest. Contract outfitters are licensed on the Madison River. Walter is a USCG-licensed Captain authorized to run power boat trips on all inland waters of the United States.

Fly Fishing Yellowstone Country, Walter's most recent book, is a great, low-cost resource for Yellowstone and Montana fly fishing trip planning for visitors with access to Kindle e-book readers. Click the image to purchase!

News Headlines

Updated February 3

2017 Guided Trips rates are now set. Only small changes this year (thank the gas prices remaining low for that). There are a couple changes of note, however. First, we're now offering Madison River float trips early in the season, when the Yellowstone is out of play due to the spring melt. Second, we've REDUCED rates for spring float and walk/wade trips on the Yellowstone River. Coming from March to May? You'll want to check these rates...

Preliminary season streamflow and fishing forecast has been posted over at our fishing report site. Long story short, we've enjoyed (or endured) the first bitterly-cold winter in 10+ years this winter, with an above-normal amount of snow to go with it. This bodes well for strong summer flows and cold water through the summer, though there's still a lot of winter and spring weather to go that can change things.
