Sometimes conditions are not perfect for fly fishing, especially in the spring time with the snow pack melting in the mountains. With inconsistent weather patterns moving through, many of our local rivers can be fishable one day and unfishable the next. This time of year you have to be flexible to find the best conditions. This week I took a few days on a road trip with a fellow guide in search of fishable water for upcoming clients. Here is a photo essay of the trip.
Decisions have to be made in a moment's notice which way to go in search of clean water...
...and the best fried chicken in Montana.
Clean water is found and expectations are high.

The goslings are out and about on the banks of the river.
Small towns we visited that are off the major interstates, such as Twin Bridges and Virginia City, Montana.
Great sunsets after a successful day make it that much more rewarding.
