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.
Even as average summertime highs climb into the high 70s and low 80s, there’s always a recreational opportunity near Bozeman and Big Sky to cool you off before you burn out.
Fly fishing is a hobby surrounded by lore. Maybe it’s because neither of the sport’s key objectives, the fish and the bugs, are blatantly visible to the untrained eye. Or maybe it’s because generations of novice fishermen have spent countless hours chasing an understanding of the process without proper direction, returning home time and time again with nothing more than stories of defeat; how they couldn’t crack the code. Either way, to be successful fly fishing, you’ll need to ignore the lore and start from scratch.
A fly fishing trip in Montana sits near the top of every angler’s bucket list and to the surprise of many, the winter months can be one of the most productive times to fish. Winter is also the time of year when Montana’s fisheries see the least amount of pressure, so it isn’t uncommon to fish all day without running into another angler. Whether you’re looking to hire a guide or head out on your own, these world-class winter fishing opportunities produce, snow or shine.
