April or May wading opportunities in the Rockies
I've found myself between jobs and would really like to capitalize on this rare stretch of free time to get n some early season fishing in the Rockies. I've been reviewing several MT guide service sites for conditions reports and understand it is really early to be planning a trip out west (from VA) but hoping someone can point me in the right direction for early season wade-in fishing. Also open to floating and alpine lakes but want to keep costs down and not focus on floating/drifting with a guide service. I've fished around the Paradise Valley in MT and Yellowstone NP but, not little else in that area. Would think that some tailwater areas could be productive but not really familiar with what can be productive in early spring. Prefer to be in an area within a couple hundred miles of a major airport in WY, MT, CO but am considering driving since I have a couple of weeks to kill. Any help from you folks out there or who are making plans would be greatly appreciated.
