Yellowstone National Park
July, 2015 – I went back and forth on Fishing Bridge several times during my two weeks in Yellowstone National Park. It was pretty much always crowded, but not as much as what’s seen in the picture below.
Fishing Bridge – 1962:
Fishing is no longer allowed from Fishing Bridge since 1973 when it was discovered the trout population was being decimated. That, and too many fellow fishers and passing motorists were being snagged by stray hooks.
Cars and pedestrians cross here after turning from Grand Loop to get to the Visitor Center, store, restaurant, Fishing Bridge RV Park, and on to the east entrance and Cody.
There’s a path to the side and a place for wading if you want to get your feet wet.

This was the first area I stayed at and I was lucky enough to have friends working in the area who helped me out with a place to camp for a couple of weeks.
