Hunting:

2015 Montana and Idaho Licenses are now available for purchase.

Don’t forget to get your application for resident and nonresident deer and elk permits filled out and sent in by March 16th.

Winter mountain lion season with use of hounds goes until April 14th.

We always want to see your photos of trophy game or catches so bring em down!

Fishing:

Canyon Ferry: Ice conditions are variable due to the warm temperatures we’ve had lately and caution should be used. Fishing has been okay with perch with a few walleyes being taken as well, fishing open water with a spinner tipped with worms seems to be an okay approach as well as snap jigging from shore with a Kit’s tackle jig head and worm.

Little Black Foot: We’ve had a plenty of customers heading over here to get in some great early bird fly fishing. Nymphing is the ticket this time of year so bring some bead-headed Pheasant Tails and black or olive buggers you should get some good bites in some gorgeous country.
