Joe and I took a much more relaxed attitude this year. We have some very solid areas that we really enjoy fishing and we concentrated on those areas instead of spending a lot of time driving around Montana looking for new streams. With that said, we found three new streams that were absolutely fantastic that I will be fishing again the first opportunity I get.
I will tell one story about this trip that could have ended very badly. We planned to hike into a stream to fish that was in a steep canyon. As you can see from the picture the trail in a lot of places was very narrow and virtually on a cliff face. We hiked about 4 miles back and only found one place to get down with a hard scramble. Joe did catch this nice brown on his second cast.
