With winter upon us here in Montana, we may not be on the river everyday but we still fish when the conditions allow. As I have gotten older I choose more wisely the days I chase after trout. The thermometer has to be at least around 30 degrees for one. Fishing during the winter can be rewarding on many different levels. As fly fishing is a popular sport during the summer here in Montana, you may find yourself the only person on the river. Standing in the river surrounded by snow covered mountains is not only very peaceful but relaxing as well.
