With heart-stirring landscapes, benefits for physical and mental health and clean, cold water, Montana's high country is truly the final frontier in the last best place. That is why Wilderness Adventures Press is excited to introduce this all-new guide to flyfishing southwest Montana's mountain lakes.
These underfished tarns host everything from wild 5-pound cutthroat to the elusive and challenging golden trout to the increasingly rare arctic grayling. Mix in the occasional trophy brookie and all the 12-inch cutts and rainbows you can catch and it becomes apparent that there is no shortage of opportunity.
Author Joshua Bergan has spent years exploring these pristine highland gems. From fish and bugs present, to water conditions, hiking difficulty and the flies that work, this guide provides all the necessary information. A broad selection of drive-to lakes, short hikes and several-mile treks with overnights are laid out with GPS coordinates for the trailheads and destinations. The author's driving directions get you to Point A and Wilderness Adventures Press' highly-touted maps take it from there.
This comprehensive guidebook covers over 250 highland lakes from the Absarokas to the Idaho border, including the Gallatin Range, Madison Range, Gravelly Range, Tobacco Roots, Pioneer Mountains, Beaverhead Mountains and other smaller ranges. Fishing mountain lakes isn't for everyone, which is why it should be for you. Unleash a lifetime of new fishing spots with this outstanding new book.
