Fly Fishing Southwest Montana
You sit there thinking about how hot it is outside, how many sunflower seeds you’ve chewed up and how cold the water would be if you fell in. All the while, nature goes by like the passing wind. Tiny caddis hatch off the river’s edge, an osprey makes a high pass on a fish, and minnows scurry in all directions from a casting shadow.
This is Montana; big sky country; the treasure state.
We all know the state for its cowboys, fishing and skiing, which draws in thousands of visitors.
A more popular and well-known region of Montana is the southwest portion of the state. This area spans from the entrances of Yellowstone Park up to Bozeman and Montana State University, along with the Big Sky ski area, and all the other small towns in between.
Southwest Montana is a fly fisherman’s paradise. Brown and rainbow trout spawn and thrive in the cold waters of a vast landscape, which ranges from high plains to steep mountains. The source of these fishing spots depends on the runoff of snowpack from the surrounding mountains.
