The Corps of Discovery reach the confluence of the Missouri and Yellowstone April 25th, 1805

Confluence of Missouri and Yellowstone

On their return trip in 1806 Clark explored along the Yellowstone while Lewis explored north of the Missouri. They agreed to met at the confluence. 

Journal 
Clark reached the confluence first where mosquitos proved too much for him. He moved several miles down stream leaving a note for Lewis on a tree branch much to Lewis' dismay.
