Default Re: Ft. Smith to Craig

Fish the mouth of the Shields river where it flows into the Yellowstone. I've had good luck there. I would also recommend, if it is just a couple of hour stop for which you are looking, don't head north to Townsend when you head to Helena/Craig. Instead go up through Boulder. The Boulder River (there are two. I'm talking about the one near Boulder) is not known as a great fishery. However, there are some great public access spots within the past 7 or 8 miles before Boulder that have given me some great fishing. I'm not talking monsters; but, I am talking occasions where I have been able to spend an hour or so and been able to catch a couple of dozen "fun little trout".
