BIG HORN RIVER | FIELD ASSIGNMENT Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures
Fort Smith, Montana
After a quick turn around, I packed and re-packed and headed out to Fort Smith for a few days on a Yellow Dog Flyfishing assignment. The first stop was to The Big Horn River Lodge, a comfortable place with great food and a top-notch outfitter, Matt Clawson. Matt is seen below releasing a brown trout underwater. The second stop we visited the Big Horn Anglers. We fished with Steve and Pete. Pete can bee seen in the image below wrangling a brown trout. The Bighorn is not short of willing fish that love to eat top water bugs. I look forward to returning.
COLD WEATHER & GOOD LIGHT
It was nice to be back at the “other office” today. Water and air temperatures battled it out which created some stunning scenery. Winter fishing sure has its perks, today was one one of them!
Austin Trayser is content with icy guides, frozen fly-line and ice encapsulated flies. This time of year in Montana its just what you need to do to get the most of it, and it ain’t all that bad!

A FINE FALL DAY | MONTANA FLY FISHING Montana backcountry stream
Fall in the Rocky Mountains is one of my favorite times of the year. The crisp air is welcomed after a long hot summer. I had a nice sunny fall day on the water with temps in the mid-30’s. I try to remember to enjoy the easy walk-wading while you can, winter should be here any day now. Angler: James Muhlbeier
