Default Re: Road Trip to Montana in August

That is an ambitious itinerary! Sounds great. As already noted GNP is not much of a fishing destination, magnificent beauty though. The places on your list you need to "bear aware" are in the parks or the general vicinity of each. But in August most all bears will be way up high in the cooler climes.

If you want to be guided on the Big Hole or Beaverhead note that there are certain days outfitters are not allowed, there is a specific schedule, you cab find it in the fishing regs online at mtfwp. You will probably also want to book your guides in advance, might be tough if just walk into a shop and want a guide the next day in those areas.

Last thought/suggestion...its a lot of miles between YNP and GNP. You might want to camp on rock creek and take advantage of fishing late into the evening and driving early the next morning. The fishing is going to be slowest middle of the day until evening, so try to plan your drives during the heat of the day and fish dawn and dusk. That will the case just about everywhere.

BTW, fort fizzle is one of my favorite quick and easy fishing spots.
