Our Montana fly fishing guide season really gets going in the month of May. Water temperatures are continuing to warm up, we start to see more consistent hatches in May, and the trout get much more active. The guides are hungry to get back out on the water daily and the air temperatures in May, start to climb. This time period is really the kick off to our Montana fly fishing season.
