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.

Drift Boat Strategies - Casting From A Moving Drift Boat

Most of the trips we guide are using a drift boat to fish our large western rivers. For many of our inexperienced anglers this is a new experience. Many anglers want to cast directly out from the drift boat at 90 degrees, or towards the back of the boat.
