As the temperatures rise, melting away the remnants of last winter’s snowfall, our rivers are once again running clear and fishable. The rivers color will veer from brown to dark green and eventually run clear. While fish can and do feed in muddy water, the increase in clarity allows for[…]

I’ll be heading to the Madison, Beaverhead, Ruby, and Gallatin Rivers next week.  My buddies Z, Dave, and Allen arrive for our annual July fishing trip.  I’ll be sure and practice my fish photography while I’m reeling them in.
