Real quick, if you plan to fish the Lamar, go late in the year. It is the last river of the Yellowstone drainage to clear from the run-ff. If you can catch it right when it clears, you can throw anything that floats and the cutts will nail it. As for slough, i have had tons of luck with terrestrials(ants,beetles,hoppers),midges, and prince nymphs. From past experiences out there on both rivers, be aware you are in prime grizzly country at that section of the park. The only area that i have seen bears and tons of evidence of their presence is in that area. Also, MT/WY have rcvd about 120% more snowpack this year than previous years, so depending on the time your heading out there, the rivers may still be murky. good luck, and personally I love the Lamar, if you go to that one, hike up above Cache Creek! superb cutts, and some will go over the 20 inch mark.
