Although it's not Montana, you are only a few hours away from some very nice wild trout fishing in PA. And you must have some decent striper fishing pretty close by too.

I started out fly fishing for snook and tarpon long before I caught my first trout.

I love everything about trout fishing, especially with bamboo rods and dry flies, but when you have one shot to make a 70' cast to three or four tarpon that look like 5ft+ logs swimming toward you, no matter how many times you've done it before, you get a little weak in the knees.

I'm looking forward to fishing the Madison this year. Of course I live literally 5 min. from it so I plan to be there as often as possible.
Our head gate is in a (locked) private access only and there just happens to be a picture perfect run there as well. I suppose I'll have my TFO and a few flys with me when doing irrigation this summer. Kinda makes the irritation of irrigation worth it.

My fly fishing neighbors in both north Idaho and Texas where our place is on the Guadalupe River enjoy the fishing and do pretty well too. I will learn to fly fish when I eventually get around to living at home.

As coincidence would have it, I'm headed to Craig, Montana for three or four days of guided fishing on the Mighty Mo. Leaving in the morning.

That's a great stretch, I used to fish it a ton. You'll have some good days!

I love the caddis hatches, fishing a Mo R Special is about as good as it gets.

Less of course it's hoppers on the Sun in August.

Trolling is good on some of the local ponds with a 4 wheeler, but there is nothing like small dry's on Montana's Blue Ribbon Streams...
