High Temps Prompt Additional Fishing Restrictions on Several Montana Rivers

Several angling restrictions on rivers in southwest, north-central and south-central Montana went into effect July 20, 2021 due to warming temperatures and low flows.

The restrictions include what are commonly known as “hoot owl” restrictions, which means fishing is closed from 2 p.m. to midnight each day. Some waters are under full fishing closures, which prohibit fishing at all times of day. These closures and restrictions will stay in effect until conditions improve.

Fly Fishing Montana In May

If you are looking for less pressured waters and great fishing in Montana, May is a great month to fly fish Montana.

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. Even though we start fly fishing here in Montana much early in the year, the fly fishing in May is a great month to visit Montana and treat yourself to some less pressured fly fishing. Remember, the trout haven’t seen much pressure the past six months and they tend to be a little less finicky than later in the year.
