  1. Default Flyfishing Montana!

    Hello, I'm new to the forum, this is my first post - hello everyone!

    I'm seeking some advice or recommendations for where to fly fish in Montana, who to fish with and where to stay (lodge/outfitter). If you wouldn't mind sharing your experiences with me I'd sure appreciate it. I kind of have my heart set on the big horn river fishing with sunrise fly shop. Let me know what you think so I can make sure to have a great time and catch some fish.

    Hi cbl0325,

    Welcome to the forum. Looking forward to your post.

    The Big Horn is a great fishery. It is fished heavy but it is big water. The drought has been hard on most of Montana's rivers and a guide is a good idea. Here is a site that has a lot of information. I have not fished with these people so I can not make a recommendation. You didn't say what part of the river you were wanting to fish.

    When are you going?
    how much time do you have?
    Do you want to fish rivers and lakes?
    How much driving are you willing to do?

    Hi fyshstykr,

    You live close to Montana, do you get to fish there often?

    Hi Frank, and Merry Christmas.

    I don't fish there as much as I used too, But I have fished the Bighorn, Gallatin, Madison, Hebgen Lake to name most of them, not that I don't want to, I just have a hard time getting any further north than the Island Park area nowdays.
    I am definately going to fish the "Gulpers" on Hebgen a bunch this upcoming summer, my wife has not played that game yet.
    I really want to get up farther north in Montana to fish the Missouri and some of the reservation lakes east of Glacier.
    And let's not forget the fabled Spring Creeks around the Bozeman area.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    My favorite spots, depending on time of year, would include Beartrap Canyon on the Madison, Poindexter Slough/Beaverhead in Dillon, and Missouri river below Hauser and Holter dam. The East Gallatin river in Bozeman used to be an untapped resource when I was in college, but the secret must have gotten out because last time I fished there I ran into a number of people.

    I'll be staying in Twin Bridges and will fish for 2 days with guide and 2 days without. You mentioned the drought was hurting MT rivers, should I really be considering somewhere else?

    The Ruby River below Ruby reservoir has some excellent opportunities just some rather aggresive land owners. Stay in the water and you will be fine. The Ruby is only about a half hour south of Twin Bridges in Alder MT.

    FlyFisher, do you mean that you can wade in the river bed, or must you be floating?
    On the whole, I'd rather be in Wyoming . . .
