Jim, when I was out that way a few years ago, I mentioned to a guy that I was buying some flies from that I'd be fishing the Yellowstone in the park. He said why bother, thats where everyone goes. He then suggested that I stop at the small creeks and rivers outside the park, somewhat near the east side entrance, that get overlooked. I took his advice and had the best afternoon of trout fishing ever. Some of these creeks were no more than 2 feet across, but held Brown, Rainbow, and Cutthroat.
My point is, besides the tip, all fish were caught on hook and worms-no weight. I bet your son will never forget a day of catching tons of beautiful fish.
Also, I did fish the Yellowstone, did catch some, but the action was nowhere near the cricks outside the park. I did have some huge Elk sitting in the grass watching me cast, that added a certain aspect to fishing I've never had elsewhere. Good Luck, let us know how you do. Hey watch out for the Buffalo-mean, ornery creatures
