Fly Fish Montana in Fine Fall Foliage

If fly fishing is your thing, then Montana between September 15 and November 30 is the perfect destination. This time of year brings some of the best fly-fishing opportunities imaginable in this beautiful state. Not only will you find a variety of species to try your luck on, but you’ll also have the chance to appreciate nature at its finest – with breathtaking views and vibrant sunsets. In the fall, we focus on the larger brown trout and frequently throw large streamers. Fall foliage, cooler weather, fewer crowds, and trophy-sized fish. Seize the opportunity to fly fish in stunning Montana over this period – it’s not to be missed!

Fantastic fly fishing trip!

We were well outfitted from the Tackle Shop for our first time trip on the Madison. In store Riley was professional and very personable. Our guide Jim Bob gave us lessons and tips prior to hitting the water. Once on the water he guided and directed us. We caught some amazingly beautiful fish and had a fantastic time. Definitely Jim Bob made the experience great for us. Top notch guide.
