Fishing High Water In Montana

In our area, many of the rivers are high and off-color right now. We have to adjust the way we fish to not only get down to the fish but also have success. With the water being off-color we can get away with using stronger leaders and tippets and bigger, flashier flies. You have to get your flies in front of the trout and get their attention.

Chasing the Skwala Hatch in Missoula

I made quick plans with a fellow outfitter and buddy of mine to head out of town for a short fishing trip. We decided to run up to the Missoula area and check out the Bitteroot area to try hit the Skwala hatch. We had good reports of fish eating dries and it didn’t take much to have an excuse to get out of town and check it out. Plans were made, a few calls and a little research was done. We loaded up his camper and set out on the road with a drift boat in tow. We headed northwest and were excited about trout eating dries and spending some quality time on the river.

Getting Ready for the Season

With winter still settled in here in SW Montana, fishing has come to a standstill for the time being. That doesn’t mean we aren’t thinking about fishing and the upcoming season. We are tying flies to fill the boxes, organizing the gear and re-ordering fishing supplies.

Twitch That Hopper

It’s no secret that trout love grasshoppers on the Yellowstone River here in Montana. There is also no shortage of guides in the area. These trout see lots of different hopper patterns drifted over their heads during August/September. Sometimes you need to stand out from the crowd and give your hopper pattern some movement.
