Wyoming/Montana Trip

Recommended Posts

PT73

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?

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.
