This year on our Fly Fishing Frenzy trip we focused more on fishing and less on videos and pictures…..that doesn’t mean we didn’t take a lot, we just didn’t spend as much time this year getting that perfect shot or perfect clip. We still manage to take few good photos and videos. This years trip started with a drive by of Daniels Reservoir hoping to see some top water action but after an hour of no action we decided to keep on moving. We fished the Henry’s Fork outside of St. Anthony and had some success with small nymphs but over all it was cold and the water was off color and high. Day two we headed to the Beaverhead River and that is when the action really heated up. Dave Hancey and myself found a run that produced about 45 fish to the net in 4 hours. That night we fished from the banks of Clark Canyon Reservoir and that was the night that we caught the biggest fish of the trip landing 5 fish over 24 inches. We fished the Beaverhead two days and headed to the Madison River. We had planned to make our way to Missoula but we didn’t hear many good reports up that way and knew that the Madison River would produce so that is where we ended up the next three days. Over those three days we fished every foot of the river between Hebgen lake and Quake Lake. The weather wasn’t the best but there is something about experiencing rain, snow, sleet, hail, lighting, wind and sunshine all in one day that makes fishing fun. The rain did force us to hit West Yellowstone for a hotel instead of camping and the fact there was three feet of snow did help.
The trip was a success landing many good fish and giving us all new experiences with new waters. Here a few pictures from the trip.
