Question Montana Regional Book Recomendations..?

I've got the Montana Fly Fishing Guide (EAST) and its pretty informative; dealing with Beaverhead, Big Hole, Gallatin, Madison, Missouri, and Yellowstone. Published in 1996.

I was wondering if anyone had other 'must read' recommendations I've missed on these rivers; or DVD's on same subject?

...I realize there's loads of books out there, but I'm searching for newer stuff with current and accurate info; 'you've read' preferably...?!

Default Re: Montana Regional Book Recomendations..?

There are two new books out that are guide books and I have looked them over but not read them cover to cover. I also don't have the correct names of the books but I do know all the Authors and they have been guiding and outfitting people in the state for a long time. The first book is by Brian and Jenny Grossenbacher. It is a guide book with newer maps and it provides a general overview of the major rivers in the area. The other book is by Pat "Paddy" Straub and is a bit more in depth with fewer maps. Either of them are worth taking a look at but the bible for me has always been the Montana Angling Guide written by Chuck Fothergill. The text needs to be updated because things have changed a lot since it was written back in the 80's but the maps were one of my most valuable tools when I moved here 22 years ago.

Books will only give you some ideas about things, the best thing you can do is explore and fish as much as you can. Montana is huge and after 22 years I am still learning and finding amazing places to wet a line.

If you are interested in fishing the spring creeks, try John Mingo's book "Fly Fishing the Montana Spring Creeks - The Rainbows of Paradise.". It's available at
