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.
Personally, I am more excited about the small stream opener than anything. Small waters are intimate and refreshing after fishing the big rivers with lots of people. There are countless miles of small water in an hours drive from Bozeman… More water than you could likely fish in a lifetime.
The fishing season is upon us! Good luck to everyone heading out this weekend. Come down to the shop and tell us your fish story next week!
