Elk Meadows Ranch Outing, July 21, 2012

Elk Meadows RanchWe invite you to join the Yellowstone Park Foundation on July 21, 2012 for a special evening of recreation and relaxation in Yellowstone Country.

The privately owned Elk Meadows Ranch sits in the spectacular Madison Valley south of Ennis, Montana, the self-proclaimed “Fly Fishing Capital of the World.” From the comfort of the ranch take in fantastic views of the magnificent Madison Range, mountains which lead southeast to the crown jewel of national parks, Yellowstone.

Enjoy a festive, gourmet, and locally sourced dinner by Reel Food on the Fly, and hear a special talk by Dan Wenk, Superintendent, and Todd Koel, Ph.D., Supervisory Fisheries Biologist for Yellowstone.

Following dinner, spend an evening with fly fishing legend Craig Mathews, who will guide you through some of the best water in the region. Craig Mathews has fished Yellowstone National Park and the Madison for over 30 years. He’ll show you how to fish this incredibly beautiful fly fishing destination.

Craig MathewsIn the words of renowned broadcast journalist Tom Brokaw, "Craig Mathews is a master fly-fisher, and his knowledge of Yellowstone is matchless."

This event is exclusively offered by the Yellowstone Park Foundation, and all proceeds from this special opportunity will have direct benefit to Yellowstone National Park. This trip is offered to a limited number of guests on a first-come, first-served basis.
