Come autumn, Montana’s forests come alive as unassuming groves of aspens, cottonwoods and willows trade in their summertime green attire for brilliant shades of yellow, orange and red. The contrast of these colors against the dark evergreen canopy that dominates our local hillsides makes for an electrifying visual that you’ll have to come see to believe.
So much to see, so much to do this fall in the Bozeman, Big Sky, Yellowstone area of Montana.
The saying, “If you don’t like the weather in Montana, wait five minutes,” might be more true in the fall than it is during any other time of year. Sustained 70-and-sunny weather patterns can be interrupted by sharp temperature drops, rain and even snow, so being prepared with a wide array of flies, and the knowledge of when to use them, is key to having a successful fall Montana fishing trip.
