| Two men are shown fishing for trout on the Yellowstone River in this early
divided-back postcard, copyright 1905 by Detroit Publishing. This natural setting
for anglers has changed little over the years, though increased visitation has
required special limitations for fishing Yellowstone's unstocked lakes and rivers.
Fishing is still permitted on Yellowstone River and its tributaries, though park
regulations require this be done on a catch-and-release basis only, and in the
area between Chittenden Bridge (near Canyon) and Yellowstone Lake. For
complete details on present-day fishing in Yellowstone, including species and
area restrictions as well as permits and fees, follow this link for the Fishing in
Yellowstone section of the Yellowstone National Park website.
