Wyoming/Montana Trip

6 posts in this topic

Planning on going out west next September, hiring a guide for 1-2 days, then venture out on our own for the remainder of the time. Can anyone recommend a guide service, outfitter, or an area to concentrate on?. Thanks

Looking for suggestions on where to go. The Big Horn is a possibility.

I love the Big Horn! There is an outfit you can contact out there called Cottonwood Camp, near Port Smith. The guy that runs the fly shop is Thor, and he has a couple of guides that work for him. The two that I met seemed very nice and knew every hole in the river. One of them, I want to say Brad, has a phtograph of a monster salmon from new zealand on the wall. One of the biggest they'd ever seen come out of there.

Hope that helps.

what kind of fishing are you hoping to do? Saying you want to go to WY/MT is kind of like saying "I want to buy a car." I don't mean to criticize but try to narrow it down:

rivers or lakes?

if rivers, big rivers or small streams?

easy access or backcountry?

wade or float?

dry flys or streamers?

stuff like that

Would like to stick to the rivers out there. Would like to take a day float trip with a guide, then rent a boat and go it alone. I wouldn't mind a drift/wade combo trip either. We will be going in late August/early September, plan to carry both a dry fly setup, and a nymphing rig. What have you guys experienced out there?

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
