The high country of northwestern Montana is an often overlooked shangri-la of trout fishing. From spotless rainbows to big wild cutthroat trout, these mountain lakes offer fantastic fishing for anglers of all skill levels. They also present seclusion from the hustle and bustle of rivers, incredible scenery, big adventure and the chance to burn a few calories, all while getting your flyfishing fix.
These alpine fisheries do not have the reputation nor the crowds of the famous Montana fisheries, but the fishing is just as good. There's something for everyone and every mood. These gorgeous tarns are truly the final frontiers in the last best place. Author Mike Raether has written about high-country fishing for years, and his expertise has helped a great many angler find and catch more fish. Covered are the Bitterroot Range, the Thompson River Drainage, the Vermillion River drainage, the Cabinet Mountains, the Purcell Mountains, the Wigwam River drainage, the Swan Range, the Mission Mountains (including the Mission Mountain Wilderness), the Jewel Basin, the Cabinet Mountains (including the Cabinet Mountains Wilderness) and more.
Raether's driving directions will get you to the trailhead, and Wilderness Adventures Press' best-in-class maps detail the path, from the trailhead to the lake, with GPS coordinates for all waypoints. Let the author guide you to the most beautiful lakes with the biggest trout that you've never heard of, in this new and exciting Flyfisher's Guide from Wilderness Adventures Press.
