The summer solstice has come, there are salmon flies hatching on the river and all is good in cultural epicenter of trout. The hum of town increases each day with more and more people showing up to experience and connect with our beautiful river and landscape.
Because of our huge snow pack and wet spring the entire valley shines of emerald green. The river is higher than many expected but still fishable and the water makes fish happy. There is still remnants of winter snows on the peaks and the lake that feeds the valley is completely full and ready for business.
Our sleepy little western town in the winter is now transformed into a bustling tourist and fisherman center for the season. The ebb and flow on how this town and the people who call it home transform themselves every year is amazing. Ennis has something for everyone, and one heck of a place to wake each morning. Each visitor that comes is looking to connect to something different. The river, fish, mountains, western lifestyle, or just the idea of Montana. This is a powerful calling to connect to something bigger or different than what you know and are familiar with. We feel blessed to be a small part of the summer Montana ritual that has happened for almost a hundred years.
Lots of great fishing and fun times to be had ahead of us. We look forward to seeing all of you.
