Valley Garden

You know summer in southwest Montana has arrived when you can safely navigate the channels of the Valley Garden fishing access site near Jeffers, Montana. Just getting to your favored stretch of water is summer in a nutshell...fecund sites and smells of wildlife and greenery everywhere. I wouldn't miss this event for the world. :)

A River Runs Through It

You've read the book and seen the movie. Explore the Blackfoot River, the main setting of Norman Maclean's well known Montana fly fishing story. Curious enough, the Gallatin River (near Bozeman, Montana) was filmed during large sections of the Hollywood movie...essentially the Blackfoot River's standin. :)

February Break

For the past few years, despite the severity of the winter season, southwest Montana has been fortunate to get an unusually sunny day or two somewhere in the month of February. This year, tomorrow is your day. Get out and enjoy some sun and fun on the Gallatin River. I know where I'll be on the river...Do you? :)

So Much To Love

There's a lot to love about living in southwest Montana. The Madison River is at or near the top of the list. Hopefully, this Valentine's Day and weekend, you'll find yourself either fly fishing or hiking along the upper Madison River. Enjoy! :)

Along Came Winter

February's inevitable snow dump has come to Bozeman this past week. There is more snow falling as I write this. Take heart, though...The sun will shine again; and, you'll get to enjoy views of the Gallatin River while hiking or skiing along the Squaw Creek Road. You could even carefully hike down to the river and do some fly fishing. Wintertime views of the Gallatin River don't get much better than this. :)
