Out of Area: , by Luke Geraty: Montana: 3 stars

Nope, Dorthy, we’re not in Northern California anymore. My buddy Jason and I jumped in my truck and pulled my ‘ole Clacka to southwestern Montana. Our home base was the little town of Dillon and we fished a number of rivers, including the Beaverhead, the Yellowstone (below Livingston), and the Big Hole. The fishing was average, but the good news was that I got to catch some brownies, so I was happy. We were also able to connect with Confluence guide Mike Wright and I got to witness first hand him throwing a big hopper against a bank and a beautiful cutty smash it! One may be tempted to point out that I rowed him into that fish, but I’ll leave that for when we’re all sitting around a campfire again.

Montana is great, but every year I head over there I’m reminded that I live in one of the best locations in the lower 48 as a trout bum. In addition to the Mighty Lower Sacramento River, I’ve got the Trinity, the Upper Sac, the Pitt, the McCloud, and recently have experienced Fall River. Rainbows for days and most of them are big.

I think fishing with buddies is one of my favorite things to do because you get to learn new things from them, talk a lot of smack, and experience some incredible scenery. Book a trip today… let’s go catch some fish!
