Fly Fishing Montana

The Beaverhead Rivera tail water fishery which flows below the Clark Canyon Reservoir, is

conceivable the best trophy trout stream in Montana. The

Beaverhead is predominately a brown trout fishery with huge

Rainbows mixed in. This cottonwood and willow lined stream

produces prolific hatches of Caddis flies, Mayflies, little yellow

Stoneflies & Crane flies. Beaverhead River is one of Montana's

premier brown trout fishing rivers, producing more large trout,

particularly brown trout, than any other river in the state." In a

recent public meeting of the Beaverhead Watershed the topic

was the state of the area fisheries. The local FWP fisheries

biologist, Matt Yeager, stated that he was very excited about

the Beaverhead River for the upcoming season due to the numbers and size of fish.

The Big Hole River is one of the most scenic trout streams in the

country. The Big Hole has many personalities exhibited

throughout its course beginning in the Rockies and ending at

the confluence with the Beaverhead to form the Jefferson. The

rare Arctic Grayling can be caught in sections above Divide.

Below Divide the river enter a narrow steep canyon whose

beauty is unsurpassed and where Big Horn Sheep are its

residents. The Big Hole is world renowned for its Salmon fly

hatch. Tricos, Green Drakes, Caddis and Golden Stoneflies also

hatch-out at different times throughout the season. Terrestrials and Streamers can offer action

in late summer and fall.

The Madison River is a gorgeous blue ribbon trout stream. "One

big riffle" is the exciting, dominating feature of these world

famous waters. As you drift downstream, the Madison river's

personality begins to change ever so slowly. The Madison

becomes a river that winds and braids, in the lower stretches,

creating deep holes punctuated by shallow riffles. Truly BIG SKY

Poindexter Slough is a public spring creek just minutes from Dillon. Dry fly fishing is at its best

with prolific hatches and lots of hungry waiting trout. Small flies are a must. Hatches include

Midges, Caddis and a large variety of Mayflies.

Clark Canyon home to rainbows and browns is one of the more famous reservoirs to catch

trophy trout on fly. If you are looking for the trout of a lifetime, Clark Canyon could be the

destination for you. Streamer and nymph fishing are the predominate methods used though

rising trout can be found.

Private Water including ponds and spring creeks are available to those who want an isolated fly

fishing experience (advance booking required).

Montana Fly Fishing Report

2014 has been another

great fishing year in

Southwestern Montana.

This time of year the

colors are beautiful, the

wildlife are moving

around more and the

fish are active. The area

snow pack was 139% in

the spring and the

fishing on our area

waters have been world class as always. According to Montana Fish. Wildlife & Parks - "The

Beaverhead River is one of Montana's premier brown trout fishing rivers, producing more large

trout, particularly brown trout, than any other river in the state." The local FWP fisheries

biologist, Matt Yeager, is working on some great projects to benefit the Beaverhead River. The

Big Hole River is one of the most scenic and productive rivers in the state and will be a great

choice for anglers as well our other area waters. The Beaverhead Watershed Committee has a

great project in-the-works to enhance the waters in Poindexter Slough Public Spring Creek. If all

the funds are obtained work will begin December 1, 2014. If you would like to contribute to this

incredible spring creek that is open to the public we can direct you to the name and address of

the fund. Just call or email us. And, we will get you the details.
