Fall Fly Fishing


If you can predict anything in fly fishing, it's that fishing will be good in Western Montana in the fall.  There is a multitude of hatches starting in late August and continuing consistently through the middle of October. If you are someone who prefers a little cooler weather, like big fish eating a variety of flies and favor consistent water flows, fall fishing in Montana is probably for you.  Generally speaking, and remember we are talking about fishing and mother nature here, fall means great fishing. Similar to spring there is a  "happy" attitude amongst fish species because it is time to gorge! Because of this, fall has quickly become many a traveling angler's favorite time to be here in Montana. With the heat of the summer having passed, fishing is good due to the fact that most fish have begun the tenuous goal of fattening up for a long Montana winter. Waterfowl are migrating, trees are turning, and if you get out early... you just might hear the mighty Bugle of a bull elk echoing through the hills.  If we've sparked some interest, and you want more info, give us a call.
