Im going to be getting off of work in late August and again in late sept, was curious to know anyone had hiked down from yoder Rd to Michelle rd or from Michelle rd to the parks hwy? If so how far is the hike, which one would be more doable? Going to be looking trout and grayling using beads and flesh. Anything else I should bring, haven't fished up there much as I usually concentrate my efforts down south. Any advice would be helpful thanks.
Hey 2wksatatime. Welcome to the forum. You are on the right track. Beads and flesh will definitely be indispensable on your trip. Take some dolly lamas and egg sucking leeches with you as well. That is some thick terrain along Montana creek so be prepared for some bushwhackin. I'd bring some bear protection with you as well. There are some beauty rainbows along that stretch. Sounds like fun. Good luck.

This creek becomes very swift and strong in a big hurry. If looking for grayling, bring some dries. Deep slow water on this creek seems to be the best for finding them. Don't expect a lot of action from grayling, though.
