Montana offers fly fishers more than a little bit of everything. From classic rivers holding trophy rainbows and browns to high-country wilderness lakes filled with unsophisticated native cutthroats, out to high plains reservoirs and their own windswept version of this sometimes arcane pursuit, Montana presents several lifetimes of angling experiences.

With so much to fish - and so little time to do so - fly fishers need John Holt's Montana Fly Fishing Guide West, an irreplaceable reference that offers everything a fly fisher needs for the ultimate Montana fishing experience. Here is concise, accurate information for out-of-staters confronted with a mind-numbing variety of choices and those fortunate Montanans looking to expand their horizons on quality waters waiting quietly over the next range of mountains or hiding in some out-of-the-way coulee.

Features include: more than 300 pages and 84 photographs; full descriptions of every major river; descriptions (how to get there, when to fish, and what to fish) of all important streams and lakes within the major drainages - hundreds of waters; great maps of all drainages; hatch charts for important mayflies, caddisflies, and stoneflies; comprehensive fly recommendations for each major water.

An extremely thorough listing of lakes and streams in Western Montana. A must-have if you are adventurous and tired of visiting the same lakes everyone else visits. This book gives you the location of the body of water by township/section numbers, directions for how to reach the trail or get closest to the lake, and what you'll find to catch once you get there.

Fishing Montana, Revised
Michael Sample
List Price: $16.95

If Big Sky country ever designates a state passion, it's likely to be fishing. Anglers enjoy an unsurpassed wealth of fishing waters with scenic backdrops that can take your breath away. In Fishing Montana, these waters are the topic of discussion. The voices of some of Montana's foremost fishing guides and fisheries experts speak volumes in these pages. They suggest where to fish, when to fish, and how-the flies and lures that could make the difference between an empty creel and a good day's catch. Readers can also glean a better understanding of the management and conservation efforts taken to improve opportunity in a state where the angling is incomparable. The names of these rivers and lakes conjure daydreams of clear, cool water and fish rising to take a fly: the Bitterroot, the Blackfoot, the Big Hole, the Madison, the Yellowstone, and more. Fishing Montana has been updated and improved with a user-friendly format which provides details at a glance. Whether you're planning an afternoon or a week of angling adventures under the Big Sky, you'll want to have Fishing Montana along for the trip.



Wingshooter's Guide to Montana
Chuck Johnson, Ben O. Williams

Covers sage grouse, Hungarian partridge, pheasant, sharptails, blue, ruffed and spruce grouse, Merriam's turkey, ducks, and geese. With this guide, you can virtually visit Montana "cold" and find a place to hunt the species you want, and nearly be assured of a good hunt.
