Lush river bottoms provide habitat for a broad range of migratory waterfowl not to mention local raptors. Each spring, year round resident bald eagles can be observed raising their eaglets in trees near the river.
Beaver ponds, as well as some man-made ponding provide nesting security for many varieties of ducks. There is plenty of room for additional pond development, from smaller sizes to several acres.
Unique private islands provide beautiful park-like settings along the Yellowstone. Cliffs of sandstone rise above, providing a feeling of serenity with an occasional waterfall for background music.
In the spring, these areas are an intimate nursery for many species to birth and protect their young. This time of year provides endless opportunity to see different birds and animal life with their offspring. Expect a large variety of ducks, (including wood ducks), a vast diversity of song birds, hawks, eagles, owls, wild turkey, and even pelicans (yes, pelicans), mule and whitetail deer, black bear, beaver, and an occasional Moose.
These riparian areas are not grazed and are minimally transversed until after the young are raised. Each year more of them find their way back to the security of their birth place to start the gift of life over. The privilege of stewarding this wonderland is continually appreciated.
Of course, the river itself is classified as a "Blue Ribbon" fishery and whether wading or drift boating, expect frequent and large wild Cutthroat, Brown and Rainbow trout.
