Montana Fishing Company has headed East to Tennessee this week for some ﬂy ﬁshing in the Great Smokey National Park. With near 90 degree weather in Montana all the snow is melting in the mountains. This means that we will hopefully have our third and ﬁnal runoff of the season. Fly fishing in Montana should be good this year because of the state of our current snow pack.
The Thompson River should be back in shape within the week and the Salmon Flies should be out in bulk numbers. Remember that Rock Creek is still a good bet for the Salmon ﬂy hatch. Stop in the Rock Creek Merk for the local info.
I have decided to go after the enormous Stripers on the tail waters of Tennessee. These ﬁsh grow to 50 pounds and are very hard to catch on a streamer. If you do land one it is a once-in-a-life-time catch. I will have some interesting photos in next weeks post. Tune in in to the Montana Outdoor Radio Show for local ﬂy ﬁshing reports every Saturday from 6-8.
