Sweet, Sweet Summertime

Despite a fishing season marked by lower than average flows, funky hatch cycles and variable weather conditions (snow in the mountains last week, 90 degree temps this week), we have been finding the trout we need to have fun and productive days on the water. It seems that everything is about two weeks ahead of schedule this year, and hopefully that means fall will also make an early arrival as well.

The terrestrial season is officially here, so chasing hoppers, ants and beetle patterns down the river is the main attraction. It's some of our favorite fishing of the year, and some of our trout's favorite eating of the year too. The days are getting noticeably shorter, the mornings are crisp and cool, and before we know it we'll be heading into the tail end of our season...

But there is still plenty of time to plan your Montana fishing adventure for 2015. Buzz us today to get the scoop on specific water conditions and fishing forecasts for the fall season, and if you are planning on a prime season trip in 2016 you should be herding the cats soon to make sure you get your favorite guide and lodging spot reserved.

Have an awesome August!
