Montana Troutfitters is Bozeman’s oldest fly fishing shop Since 1978

Ice will make fishing difficult as you get below Three Dollar Bridge. You will find that stonefly, worms, and midge patterns are your best options. Dry fly fishing midges and Baetis has been excellent. Big attractor patterns like Pats Rubber Legs and large Prince Nymphs have been producing followed by 16-18 Perdigon patterns or midge pattern. The swinging and Streamer game is on full "swing"! A few of our favorite fall streamers on the upper include Dungeons, Sparkle Minnows and Double Screamers.
