Grayling Creek is a small stream that runs much of its
length along highway #191 north of West Yellowstone. It
flows into Hebgen Lake. It has a very large population of
cutbows. Fly fishing Grayling Creek is a great alternative
traveling to and from other better known fishing
destinations. You can usually stop and catch several
trout in a very short time. Grayling Creek is currently
being treated to remove its exotic species of fish and will
be stocked with native cutthroats.

There are several pulloffs along highway #191 where

If you are in the Northwest corner of the park, we suggest
you give this beautiful little stream a try. It only takes a
few minutes due to its very easy access and it is rarely, if
ever crowded. It is easy to wade and almost always
provides plenty of action.

This little stream fishes well for most all of the
Yellowstone season.
Grayling Creek is usually too cold and high to fish until
around the last part of June.
Summer is the best time for fly fishing the Grayling River.
Fall is usually good. The lower section gets some large
spawning brown trout during the Fall.
