Here are some pics from our store-hosted trip to Hubbard’s Yellowstone Lodge in Montana’s Paradise Valley. The weather and fishing were awesome, and our guests are all excited for a return trip to Hubbard’s next year. For information on future trips, contact Orvis Woodbridge.


The view from the deck at Hubbard’s looks right down Paradise Valley toward Livingston.

The Yellowstone, and its brown trout, are legendary.

The lodge, as viewed from a boat on Merrill Lake, right on the property.

Duber celebrates a nice brown that came to the net.

The Gardner River, inside Yellowstone National Park, is a great pocket-water stream.

A float trip on the Yellowstone often produces nice brown trout.

The views from the river are also often stunning.

Merrill Lake is home to some rainbows that grow fat on damselflies.

The Lamar River, in the park, is a great cutthroat fishery and a great place to see bison.

The boats are lined up in anticipation of another great day on the water.
