Montana fishing trip?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone was interested in making a trip to montana with me this summer for a week to do some trout fishing. I Would like to get a small group of people to go, it would be the first week of July. I Thought about planning a drift boat trip down the Bighorn river and try fishing some other rivers as well as some alpine lakes. Maybe even hit a lake that has some golden trout. I have made many trips out there and I know my way around very well. The fishing is unbeatable and I guarantee you would have a blast.

I'de love to join you but I am tied up with work untill fall. I have fished Montana alot too and love the Dillon area. Maidenfly and the Big Hole is always worth checking out. I have some great pictures of my last trip with some nice Browns. I'm jealous. Have fun!

Beerbatter,
Have you ever fished Poindexter slough in the Dillon area. Never tried it myself but I know for a fact it is stcked to the gills with large trout. I think it is somewhere along the lines of seven thousand trout per square mile. Would be nice to have that kind of fishing here! Later.

Poindexter is a little South west of the big hole but it is part of the same flowage. That part of the flowage is very good. If you ever get a chance give it a try. Royale Wolf and hopper patterns seemed to work the best for me for top feeders. Stone fly's seem to be very affective too. I also tie up a fly of my own that looks like a common house fly and I use a little Ginx on it so it can slowly sink. The key is slowly. Cast into the riffle and let it move into the fast/slow edge and sink. The rainbows seem to really love it.

Beerbatter thanks for the pointers. If I make it over that way I'll give it a try. Good fishing!

    • I think you should get one and we can go all over Burntside and Snowbank this winter in search of lake trout. Just keep your shirt on! 😀
    • Just don’t use crossbow when it’s above 80 or going to be above 80 or it kills the lawn as well. It’s a great product, spray on clover in the morning  and it’s brown by evening. 
    • Finally got to someone that does this for a living and well respected. Triclopyr at 16% with 34% 2-4-d is in a readily available product called Crossbow. He highly recommends it. Spot treat the weeds not the whole lawn. Weed b Gon max works great on the rest of the weeds. 
    • Well things are cooling down but the fishing over deep water continues to boat fish!  Didn't slay them but got 2 more eater's this weekend over the deep water trolling for about an hour and half towards sunset.  Benn using Rapala Shadow Raps as of late and have been impressed.
    • Need to take advantage before we play Boston and Washington . Be up by 4 or 5 games when we get to those series.
    • Did another round of cottage bacon ..... 10 days brining turning the package ever other day, rinse and rest overnight in the fridge, smoke and rest over night in the fridge, and then slicing. It is a long two week process, but well worth it! If you’ve never done it, I high recommend giving it a try! I did 4 pork butts and ended up with abound 20 lbs.... gave about half of it away already, but have 4 more butts ready to brine before winter!        
    • All puppies have been sold !
    • They need to take full advantage of the easier games coming up.  I would like to see them get about 5-6 games ahead again.
    • Well painting is getting there.  The fenders and swing arm/axles are fully painted but I only managed to get about half of the frame painted.  I will get it finished up this week.  I have too because I have a large load of rock coming to finish my driveway expansion so I have a place to park my fish house this winter haha.
    • O yes I completely forgot about them and they are practically in my back yard. Thanks.
