Every October, Maggie Mae Stone—a former Trout Bum of the Week who guides for The Tackle Shop in Ennis, Montana—spends three days in Yellowstone National Park, chasing the big fish that run up out of Hebgen Lake and into the Madison, Firehole, and Gibbon Rivers.

  1. Ran into Maggie last Friday at the Baker’s Hole Campground area. A real sweetheart and very informative. Will look her up as a guide on our next visit.
