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?

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Briggs is open as far as I could see.I will be out that way again tomorrow I'll get another glance and see if I spot some on a different side of the lake

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
