Guided Fly Fishing

The Golden Stone Inn was created by Joe, Jonathan and Justin, owners of Big Sky Anglers, a full service fly shop located in downtown West Yellowstone. If you're here to fish, this is the place for you.

As anglers, we have come to know this area around West Yellowstone as the very heart of the finest angling in the country. We have yet to find a place anywhere that has more quality trout water within a 100 mile radius. This area has a long tradition and legacy of fly fishing, with legends such as Bud Lilly, Charlie Brooks, Lee and Joan Wulff, Bob Jacklin, and Dave Whitlock who have all come here to know, appreciate, and write about this amazing diversity of waters. It is our aim to provide visiting anglers and the Yellowstone tourist alike a special spot to stay that is well thought out for their enjoyment of this area that we’ve come to know and love. We hope you’ll enjoy your stay with us!
