The second attempt in the last week to get on the board for 2020 turned out to be an outstanding day of fishing at Muddy Creek. Maurice hit me the night before to get out today to Muddy Creek on Monday. I quickly abandoned my plans for the Gunpowder and started packing up the SUV. We arrived at about 11:00 with temps in the mid-forties and cloud cover. The clouds stayed with us all day and temps moved up to the upper forties. Water was just a little off-color, running at 180 CFS and at...

After a busy spring and early summer of fly-fishing, or at the end of the season is a good time to give your gear a little attention. Your fly line especially could use some love during the year.The UV rays of the sun and common chemicals can break down your fly line over time. Sunscreen and the deet in your insect repellent can easily do the most common damage. After a short time even mud, salt and dirty water can weaken the effectiveness of your line unless you periodically clean and treat...

By Brian McGeehan at Montana Angler Fly FishingOn a recent hosted trip to Jurassic Lake Lodge in Argentine Patagonia I tested 5 of the 6 rods from the 6 Weight review. I chose not to take the Sage LL along as it was definitely not designed for high winds, big flies and bigger fish. Jurassic Lake is an incredibly windy place littered with giant rainbows. I considered leaving the Orvis Helios 3F behind as well, but because it was my overall favorite after casting in the park I wanted to see if...

By Brian McGeehan at Montana Angler Fly FishingNo fly rod is the perfect rod on every river on every given day. I have often fallen in love with a rod on one river, fishing in one style only to curse it later under different circumstances. I have also found that over and over again that the rod I fall in love with behind the fly shop is not the one I fall in love with on the river. To complicate matters, I have lost track of the number of times that I have listened to friendly arguments...

The creeks came up for a couple of days and then came back down to low conditions. The short burst of water put the first good push of fish into the system. Evanko shows some of his favorite steelhead patterns and shares several hook-ups with fish. The water fished in this video is all publicly...

We have a bit of a weather shift here in the Bighorn Valley.  The past couple days of cooler weather have made our consistent Trico activity not so consistent.  Look for the end of the week for stable weather and the fish to get back on the Trico program.  Crowds have thinned out a bit,...

The Bighorn is finally coming around and shaping up into the consistent river we have been waiting for.  The clarity is improving slightly and gets better as you go downstream.  The grass is growing quick and is shifting the fish around a bit.  It’s busy out there, but the fishing is great!

Fly Fishing the Trico Hatch There may not be a hatch that provides more intrigue to the dry fly angler than that of the trico emergence. While tricos are an intimidating hatch for some anglers to match, these size 18 – 24 mayflies turn trout into voracious feeders during the dog days of summer. On... View Article

Well folks, it’s getting a little tough out there.  Not to sound like a total downer, but you had better have your ‘A’ game on right now.  Our fish have seen a lot of pressure the past couple weeks and aren’t too keen on being slapped in the head by fly line any more.  Needless... View Article

The Bighorn has become a fisherman’s river as we move towards July.  What does this mean?  You get out of it what you put into it.  It’s not all that easy out there right now, but it’s good. Gone are the days of dropping the nymph rig off the oars and dragging bugs around.  The grass... View Article

The Bighorn continues to drop every day until it hits the 3k mark, which should be early this next week.  The fishing has been a bit up and down as far as consistency, but overall is good and should be excellent once flows stabilize.  The clarity is getting better and the drifting vegetation is not much...

The Bighorn is now stable at just under 6500K CFS.  The fish are still adapting to their new homes and fishing seems to be getting a bit more consistent.   We have seen the first decent numbers of Tricos for the year and a fair amount of fish are on them in the mornings.  We are... View Article

You squeeze in one more trip to the lake--the last trip. You get that last fish--on a muddler. Seasons come and seasons go, and a long season with this lake--ten years--comes to an end. It has been good.So long, lake.

You think this will be your last trip to the lake for a long time. You're in the middle of packing everything in the house, loading a U-Haul truck, and getting ready for a move away from Washington back to the Midwest. It's too busy to fish anymore.So you document the last time you park the truck at the channel (the truck is sold; the new owners will pick it up in a day or two) and the last time you launch the float tube.But then something goes wrong. You can't document the last fish you catch...
