A Few From the Bitterroot

I've been fishing in short trips for the last week, mostly two or three hour outings but the river has been productive. The plan is to float the Missouri on Friday so expect a report from that trip. I have low expectations as I always do when fishing a new river but I have heard great things. Being only a two hour drive and home to some big browns I have a feeling it will become a regular stop on my multi-day fishing trips.

For now, here a few from the Bitterroot.

Back in Action

I'm back in action and after driving around the west with a half filled trailer I arrived in Lolo, Montana. I spent the first week unpacking and of course floating and wading the Clark Fork and the Bitterroot. After a week of settling and fishing, a few friends from Colorado barged in and decided Saint Patty's day should be celebrated for a week. We proceeded to fish nonchalantly on the Madison and Bitterroot while filling one apartment, two drift boats and a house with beer cans. Now that I'm in recovery I'll try to get back on the blog posts and hopefully start taking more pictures.

Madison River

There were a few midges out on the Madison.
