Some of us here in the Bozeman area feel like we were screwed out of about a month of summer. The month of June was officially changed to Junuary. It's now late September and it feels like it's the middle of the summer. With temps in the 80's and 90's, it looks like we're making up for that lost month of warm weather. As much as I love warm weather, cold river beer, and not wearing waders, I'm ready for fall fishing. Though the browns are getting territorial and beginning to chase streamers, we need some rain and cold weather to get those big Salmo Trutta
in the mood for love and hating big rabbit fur flies. Pictured above is my client Christian Nordby and a perfect example of what can happen when fishing in these unusual warm fall conditions. It's hot and the shirt comes off. It's fall and the streamers come out. The wind picks up in the afternoon, and the picture tells the rest of the story.
