This photo was just sent to us by Mark Meissner - if this isn't enough reason to "get out there and get after it" - then I dont know what is! Great fish Mark.

The weather here is favorable for this weekend, and there are reports of some dry fly action starting to come in - in fact I just got a call from some of the boys on the river and today would have been a good day to be out there!

The Big Hole is on the drop, the Beaverhead is running at a great flow below Pipe Organ (remember the upper river is closed until the 3rd Saturday in May!) and the stillwater game at Clark Canyon has been fairly steady.

For me it's another week of prep work here in Montana, and then it's off to Southeast Alaska for a month of steelheading on the Adventurous. And yes, my wife is one of a kind to tolerate all the travel!

Snowpack numbers are at exceptional levels for our area - meaning just about any time this summer will be a "good time" to be in Montana. If you are undecided as to "when" to come, give us a call and let's discuss your options, as there are many of them!

Thanks again for reading - see you in Montana. Rooster
