The Missouri River
The Paradise Valley Spring Creeks
Consistency and Challenge
The Missouri begins where the Jefferson, Madison, and Gallatin Rivers all converge a few miles north of Three Forks, Montana. This area, know of Headwaters State Park is not thought of as a fishing destination, yet.
The Yellowstone River
Armstrong's/O'Hair's Spring Creek, DePuy's Spring Creek, Nelson's Spring Creek. We believe walk-wade fishing is by far the best way to become a better angler. The intimate atmosphere of standing in the water within casting range of a trout is perfectly suited to increase the learning curve.
The Madison River
Freestone Fickleness and Dry Fly Prospecting
If Montana had a Yankee Stadium, the Yellowstone River would be it. Not only is the Yellowstone a fairly large river - it is over 200 feet wide in most parts and its peak flow is over 15,000 CFS - it boasts the state's longest length of high-quality trout water-nearly 120 miles of prime fly fishing.
The Gallatin River
If ever a river defined a state, the Madison could do Montana justice. The sheer length of the Madison's fishable waters is over a hundred miles. The diversity of water on the Madison is an appropriate analogy to the massive abundance of trout water found in Montana...
The Bighorn River
Walk-Wade Numbers Game
Beginning as a trickle in Yellowstone Park, in some of the most beautiful high-country in Montana, the Gallatin tumbles down the west-side of Ramshorn Peak and flows for nearly 90 miles until it joins the Jefferson and the Madison to create the Missouri River near Three Forks.
Grand Slam Fishing and Tactics
Starting way up in high plains of central Wyoming, the Bighorn River enters Bighorn National Recreation Area and canyon just before the river enters Montana. Once in Montana, a massive dams creates a world-class tailwater fishery.
Smaller freestones, secret creeks, private lakes
The Jefferson River, Ben Hart and Thompson Spring Creeks, Baden Ponds, Burn's Lake, Story's Lake, and Sitz Ranch.
