Why Fish in Montana???

Well, the Yellowstone River has1,300 trout per mile in some stretches, including browns, 'Cutts and Rainbows. During summer months, it offers excellent dry fly fishing, and sub-surface fishing is always an option. The major hatches are Caddis flies in May, Salmonflies in July, and 'hoppers for the duration of the season. The Yellowstone stretches 775 miles from Yellowstone National Park to its confluence with the Missouri River.

The Madison River...Rainbows and Browns are the quarry, numbering between 1500 - 2500 fish per mile of both species. Between Quake Lake and Ennis, the river is characterized as a "50 - mile riffle" that consistently flows at approximately five m.p.h., its surface broken by a bed of gravel and small boulders. We'll fish an assortment of dries and nymphs during summer months

The Missouri River....In the words of Montana Fish Biologist "Downstream near the town of Craig, state fisheries crews estimated the Missouri River held 5,194 rainbow trout that were greater than 10 inches long per mile. That surpasses the long-term average of 3,174 rainbows per mile." Biologist Grant Grisak adds "87 percent of the rainbow trout in the Craig section were 15 inches long or greater, and 35 percent of the population was 18 inches long or longer." And those were the Rainbows. Of the Brown trout, they estimated that "In the Craig section that were 10 inches long and greater were estimated at 745 per mile. The long-term average is 578." That adds up to about 6,000 fish per mile. SO, start with thousands of fish per mile, add knowledgeable guides, great scenery, good food and accommodations and this is an opportunity for a memorable fishing experience.
