Default Re: Montana... what about the rest of the state?

Thanks guys for your opppinions.
They´re useful... NOT JUST for me, but for someone else too.

About the access to the rivers, being allowed in MT and ID and not in some others states is a very important issue!
It means that wade flyfishing in CO, UT and WY, for instance, must be well planned... or better planned than in MT and ID.

Larry, I´ve already ordered "RIVER MAPS..." . Even if I decide not going to MT, it will be useful in the future. Thanks for the tip!

Alex: There are exceptions to the river access thing in WY,CO and UT, for example on the Green River, it starts in the mountains in WY and flows south. In the Pindale, WY area the river flows next to BLM (Bureau of Land Management) land for 12-20 miles so the public access there is great, then below Flaming Gorge Reservoir (now in UT) the land again is BLM so the access there is also great. In fact, the BLM has built a walkway from the dam all the way to the first downstream boat launch/takeout 7 miles, so again public access is great.
In CO the public access on the Frying Pan and Roaring Fork rivers is pretty good. The CO Fish and Game over the years has bought property or leased public access, so with a river map you have plenty of options to fish those two rivers and there is a very nice Green Drake hatch that starts in Glenwood Springs and works its way up river on the Roaring Fork and then the Frying Pan in July/Aug time frame.
In WY on the North Platte River in the Grey Reef section (just south of Casper) the public access is pretty limited and the access points tend to get over crowded, which makes having a drift boat or pontoon boat really nice.
