A Call to action for everyone who fishes the Madison River or ever wanted to fish the Madison River. Public comment is open until October 30th, and your comments are very valuable. There are different proposals out there on how to manage the river and we need your comments to not allow rest and rotation.
Spring is a great time to fish Montana. The valleys starts to turn green, the mountains are still covered in snow and the trees begin to bud. Spring weather in the Rockies can be unpredictable. You can be wet wading one day and bundled up in waders, fleece, and rain jackets the next. Here is a list of things you should bring with you, so you are prepared for any weather condition.
Our cancellation policy has been revised during the coronavirus situation. You have 14 days prior to your scheduled trip to receive a full refund and up to 7 days for a 50% refund.
Governor Bullock hosted a press conference where he announced moving to Phase II of Montana’s reopening plan on June 1st. Embarking on Phase II of the reopening plan includes lifting the 14-day out-of-state travel quarantine on June 1st as well.
This time of year, the trout are hunkered down and not moving far to eat. You want to fish the slower moving water, water that they don’t have to expend much energy to live. Nymph fishing is primarily the preferred way to have success this time of year. There are windows of opportunities for dry fly fishing, but conditions must be just right.
We are happy to let you know that we will be offering a great special this spring. From March 1st to April 30th we are discounting our full day fishing trips 20%. To go along with this great rate, we also have a great early season rate on rooms at the Best Western Grantree Inn in Bozeman. Basically, you can fly fish the Bozeman area with a professional guide and get a great room for the same price as our summer prime rate for a guide.
Last winter we received an over abundance of snow that seemed as if it would never stop falling. All the drainages in the state were well above normal levels. We started our season in April due to the unusual winter and had some good fishing locally. The Missouri River fished really well in mid-May and into June. Around about mid-June, we were in full run off mode statewide.
