Plans to fish the Missouri this last weekend fell through for a number of reasons, so it was another weekend on the ‘Root. Tough life, but someone’s gotta do it.
Much of our time was spent exploring new water and fishing with new people. The weather was amazing with temps going above the sixty degree mark. You would have been crazy not to fish this weekend.
Saturday was spent high on the river, near Darby, in search of Cutthroat. We found success throughout the day, but Undie seemed to have an affinity for a different kind of fish…
After a half dozen suckers, we finally found some Cutthroat.
We even found some gold…
Topped the day off with some dry fly fishing…

On sunday Undie and I met up with Bob, a new fishing buddy we met on our last Missouri adventure, we headed down to a new section of river to do a bit of exploring. The weather was incredible, but the fishing was pretty slow…at least the trout fishing. The Whitefish fishing was epic.
Bob seemed to have the river dialed for most of the morning, while Undie and myself just scraped by. We finally found some fish in the last few runs of the day. Undie was killing it with streamers and I dredged up a few nymphing.
This was probably one of the best weekends i’ve had all winter. Good fishing. Great company. Amazing weather. Just another weekend in Montana.
