January Doubles

Sitting in the duck blind on Friday watching hundreds of golden eyes fly by, no good ducks or geese, and this one damn trout rising just outside the decoys I thought, "It's January but man, we should be fishing..."

Later that evening, a guy from Helena, (Greg Beebe, on the right,) who has become one of my best clients sent me a text wondering if it was worth going out for a day...

"Hell yeah!" I said. Let's do it. So we got Bob Page from the BobKat Motel to jump in with us and we made it happen. If the ducks aren't going to fly, you might as well fish.

So how was the fishing? The morning was a little tough but we got a few before lunch and then the afternoon lit up for about three hours. We didn't see much as far as rising fish but the nypming was solid. Find the deep slow water and you will find fish and they are hot. They're not the lethargic winter fish you'd expect. These guys have shoulders and they will impress.

As for lunch; Bob's wife Kathy cooked up some amazing chicken enchiladas so as we made it to their newly developed lodge, which will be open to the public this season, we jumped out for some delicious hot food. A beautiful day.

If you're interested in getting in on the action, I'm open all winter. Give us a call at Montana Dream Fishing Outfitters: 406-403-8163. And if you're in need of lodging and some great food where you don't have to worry about whether or not the local restaurants are open, the BobKat is definitely the way to go! 

Keep 'em where they live...
