The iconic Fishing Bridge is located at the northern tip of Yellowstone Lake. It is also the namesake for this general area. The original rough-hewn, corduroy log bridge was constructed in 1902. It was later replaced in 1937 as the large log bridge that exists today. Historically, this bridge was the most popular place in the park for anglers, a major spawning area for native cutthroat trout. Fishing in this location was closed in 1973 but is still a popular place to look for fish as they move back and forth under the bridge.
