Fly fishing is a relaxing and unique way to experience Yosemite’s summer beauty in the high country. Start this weekend adventure with a full day of catch-and-release fishing in the Tuolumne River alongside a professional guide. Round out the weekend with a full day of learning about efforts to study and protect Yosemite’s water-loving wildlife with a park aquatic ecologist. After spending a serene two days learning about the park’s aquatic species and honing skills such as casting, choosing flies and “reading” the water, you’ll be knowledgeable in all things river-related.
