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!

    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me. 
    • I've used these too. Do you add any meat or whole minnow? Hooked through the back or lip? 
    • Was up there a week ago. We stayed at the Walleye Retreat Lodge but did our own fishing rather than using their houses. First day we went out kind of N-NW of Morris Point into 27' of water. Didn't do too well. Just a couple saugers in the afternoon.    My nephew was up there with another bunch and went out using Adrian's Resort access and did quite well that same day. They gave us waypoints to their location so on day 2 we tried that. It was about 15 miles north in 33' of water. We did much better this day although most were still saugers in the 12" - 13" range. Got a few walleye in the 15" - 19" range and one 21" by your's truly.    Seemed our best success, especially for the walleyes, was dead sticking using a plain hook through the back of rainbows about a foot off the bottom. I talked to one of our neighboring fishermen and he had just landed a 27" walleye.
    • Like others have said, Impulse mayflies on a 3 or 4mm tungsten jig is my go-to for panfish. If you are targeting deeper crappies or big fish only give the Lindy frosted spoons a try, 1/16 works quite well tipped with a minnow head or waxies.
    • WOW!!!  I have read about the electronic reverse problems on DooTalk,,, I have the manual reverse and have not had any issues,,,, Bummer to hear about your engine issue ,,, Hope the dealer gets you up and back on the trails ,,, Who knows when we will get another winter like this again ,,, I do need to get some spare relays one of these days
