Silver Willows guests enjoy local water sports, including fly fishing and river rafting.

Local fishing

You have access to great fly fishing spots in and around Yellowstone.  You can even fish right on the property from Soda Butte Creek!

If you plan to fish on the property or in the national park, be sure to get the proper fishing licenses before your arrival  You may need separate licenses for Montana, Wyoming and Yellowstone National Park, depending on where you plan to fish.

For suggestions on local fishing spots, we suggest contacting:

  • Cooke City General Store (just three miles up the road)
  • Cooke City Chamber of Commerce: (406) 838-2495

River rafting

Most local rafting companies operate from the town of Gardiner, Montana. We recommend booking your rafting trip through the Flying Pig Adventure Company. You can also book calmer scenic float trips great for all ages.
