Overview

From the Bighorn in eastern Montana to 500 miles west and the Clark Fork, Montana is by far the premier state for accessible angling opportunities in the U.S. and perhaps the world. Within a four-hour drive it's possible to cross the Missouri, Big Hole, Beaverhead, and Madison Rivers! On the same drive an angler will encounter numerous spring creeks, smaller rivers, and private waters. And that still leaves out many of the other great rivers like the Yellowstone, Bitterroot, Blackfoot, Kootenai, and hundreds of smaller waterways.

This comprehensive guide provides everything an angler will need to plan a trip to Montana: how to find a guide or outfitter if you want one, how to pick your destination and directions for how to get there, angling etiquette, and selective listings for where to stay and eat while you're out there. Also includes an informative chapter about threatened fish species, invasive plant species, and other serious biological considerations.
