Tomorrow, Saturday May 16, is opening day for the waters that are closed in Montana. That means from Quake Lake to McAtee and from Ennis Bridge to Ennis Lake opens up on the Upper Madison, as well as all the small streams in the area. Opening Weekend is always worth celebrating. It’s one of those milestones that anglers all over the world mark on their calendars and count down the days toward.
Here in the shop we have been seeing a lot more people from all over the country starting to trickle in and be ready to fish for this weekend. We say Welcome Back! We love to see people from all over coming here to fish. You never know who you might bump into or where they might be from. This weekend is kind of the start of tourist season out here and we are looking forward to it.

Bring Your Gear Down Today
Our Gear Swap starts tomorrow morning at 8am! If you're planning on selling anything, you have to bring it down to the shop by 5:30 tonight. We can get you checked in and your items priced and ready to sell. Just a reminder... Items priced to sell will move, items priced at retail value will likely not sell. Keep that in mind when pricing your gear. If your items sell, you can either get a check for the sale price minus a 20% commission, or get 100% of the sale price in store credit.
This event is always pretty well atteneded, so if you're looking to get rid of any old gear or upgrade your equipment now is a perfect time!
