Yellowstone River Review
Just south of Livingston and north of Yellowstone National Park, the Yellowstone River comes roaring down the Yellowstone Plateau and flows through Paradise Valley. Fifteen fishing access sites are found in this area, some with primitive public campsites (available on a first-come, first-served basis; for information contact Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Department at 406/247–2940). In addition to trout fishing, rafting and canoeing are popular here. With snowcapped peaks, soaring eagles, and an abundance of wildlife, a float on this section of the Yellowstone is a lifetime experience. U.S. 89 follows the west bank of the river, and East River Road runs along the east side.
