Missouri River Trip, Montana

I have put together another trip to the famous Missouri River in Montana. We will arrive in Helena on May 26th, fish with some of the best guides on the Missouri on the 27th, 28th and 29th and depart on the 30th. Fishing in May should put us ahead of a lot of the runoff.

Fishing Reports

Reports are something people often depend on before going to a fishing location. Some of us get these reports from our local Game and Fish offices, fishing websites and other anglers.

Fishing in July

July is upon us and as usual and fishing is still good but you have to know where to go. Some of the lakes are experiencing some pretty warm temperatures.
