Cochise, slow down man! Where are you? If you are coming up I-15 and looking for Brown trout love you have to stop on the Big Hole. I am reluctant to give up my exact hole, but I can put you in an area...the big boys should be in there right about now. If you haven't made it North of Melrose yet, send me a PM.

Once you get to Missoula, let me know. If it where over the weekend I might be able to take you somewhere...might. Otherwise, in general the Browns are moving toward, but not into, the tribs -- as of last I heard. The Bitterroot is fishing, it can get technical this time of year, multiple hatches and spinner falls, sippers on flat water...good fun! Also the Clark Fork has begun to fish...finally! Big rainbows on dries...if you're into that.

Let me know where you are!

How was Rock Crick and the Clark, which part of the Clark Fk did you hit? Nice day for streamer fishing. No way can I get away this weekend for the BH...I like the Melrose area...I'll PM a nice spot that fills up with fish this time of year. Can't guarantee they are there yet...

Well I made it back, safe and sound from a whirlwind tour of the north country.

I did not fish in Idaho as I normally do but instead chose to spend all of my fishing time in MT, barring my last day, I was near the Miracle Mile so I figured, when in Rome.

Thanks for the good information guys I had an incredible trip!! I was snobbishly looking for big fish so I did not spend a lot of time on small fish waters. I never landed any real hogs but did have some excellent fishing for fish over 16".

Here are a few vanity shots with some cool scenery plugged in for balance.

If you see this truck, stop and fish.

What a time, I fished by myself this entire trip and enjoyed it immensely. I hope you all are making it out to the river this fall, it is stunning!!

Those were some beautiful fish. I bet you had a blast. I really need to convince the wife to move West.

Great fishing, man! Is that Scotty Brown bridge?

Am I just projecting or did you spend some time on the Blackfoot? Nice, nice brownies. I am very jealous of the solo fishing adventure...I haven't had the opportunity to that in a few years.

No fair catching fish without tails!

One more question...how do you take your photos? Just noticed that they are not the arm-length shots of most self-portrait fish photos...do you have one of those gorilla-pod things or just balance on a rock? They look good.

Thanks guys all I can think about is going back.

All of the pictures are taken from rock, log or bank.

I stayed in the bed of my pickup. I built a platform bed and have it set up for cooking, storage and sleeping. I normally take my camper but being by myself it was great for traveling not having the camper on.
