Eastern Montana Hunts

Seasons End

Eastern Montana Hunts

Another season is over. We had some good times and some tough lessons learned. With the end of a season a new one begins. More and more people are making plans well in advance. Hunters and fisherman alike, are already calling and emailing about the up coming season. Maybe you will be the next lucky hunter or angler.

The Fall

Channel Outfitters

Well kids, it looks like the August cool down has happened right on time. The dry-fly fishing this August has been the best I’ve ever seen! I think the fish will continue to look up for ants, hoppers, caddis and tiny suedos. No need to nymph fish at this point, it’s good as well. The browns are big and the rainbows are fat. Time to get your fall fishing on.

Things have really heated up here on the Missouri River. It’s hot and so is the fishing. The water is nearly at a good level to fish some dries. The nymph fishing is quiet hot! We get a big brown almost every day. Hopper fishing will be soon. Time to get on over to the Mo!!!

Lots of water, Lots of big browns! The river has been plenty high this year, high water makes for some big fish. That being said, I’m over the high water and the nymph fishing! We can look forward to a good hopper fishing season but I’m afraid the may-fly and caddis hatch will be wasted due to high flows. If you waited to long to make plans this season, that might be a good thing. Lets hope the water drops and the fish rise. Until then we will just keep catching these!

Big Trout

We have been doing well catching Big Trout. High water always makes the fish big! I have been getting lucky landing some bigs every day. The water is back on the rise due to heavy rain storms up river. The fish are just getting bigger eating all the worms, ants, sowbugs and emerging insects. We are hopeful that the river will drop to offer a better dry- fly bite. Until then, we will be catching these to pass the time,

Had some fun times with the Tim Stein group. These guys do it right! Rent a house in Craig Montana and fish the Missouri for 3 days. Great food and great guides. They are booked for the same time next year because it is that good! Yes they do have a little competition, The biggest brown takes the cup. Ray won the prestigious award two years running. Not easy to do when the guides are trying to crush each other and the clients are out for blood! Good times with good guys!

We have high water here on the Mo. The fishing is very good! On years when the water gets really high the fish get really big! Of course the dry-fly fishing is not happening until the water gets below 12000 CFS. If you like to nymph fish with long leaders and lots of weight now is your time! We hook big ones every day when the water is high!

Fun On The Mo

Fishing is getting good on the Missouri! Although we have high water, the fishing is very consistent right now. Lots of hard fighting fish are coming to the boat. It seems like the run-off is going to be gone sooner than later. We can’t wait for some dry-fly fishing! Stay tuned.

Mule Deer

Channel Outfitters

There is nothing quite like the Mule Deer. Out here the Mulie is still king! To peruse the Mule Deer in his habitat is as good as any hunt can be. In Montana we are lucky, we get to hunt the during the rut. The rut is when the big bucks come out to breed! The one time of year when that cagey old buck lets his guard down. If you have not hunted these big bucks during the rut you are missing out.
