The smaller streams around Montana are a still a great option. Some of the valley streams see more water as irrigation wraps up but they can still be low. Hopper fishing can extend well into October on many of these smaller waters. The colder mountain streams become less productive as water temps start to drop.
The Month Ahead:
On many of our smaller ranch leases the fishing can be very good all through October – especially those with a nice population of browns.
Long Term Fishing Forecast:
Smaller waters close in late November.
