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!

From late November through April, we transform into Parks' Fly and Ski shop. Our winter rental rates are below.

News Headlines

Updated February 10

We'd like to welcome Bart West to our staff for summer 2016. Bart will be working in the shop and will probably be ready to run a few guide trips by late summer given his substantial fly fishing experience.

It's warm out! Over the next two weeks, we expect to see daytime highs between 40 and 50 degrees, the first warm spell we've seen all winter. The Yellowstone River is ice free, the midges are hatching, and the pre-spawn rainbows are hungry for big nymphs, streamers, and egg flies. Get after it! Check out our short winter guided trips if you'll be in the area.


Updated January 10

Our winter season XC ski and snowshoe rentals are now available. Rates begin at $15/day, the cheapest in the region. Check our Winter Season page for details.

2016 Guided Trips Rates have been updated. Thanks to cheap gas, we are keeping most rates flat.

Check out our NEW guided trips for 2016! We're now offering walk/float combo trips as well as a new "double half-day" option on float trips.
