On Day 2 in SW Montana, we left our comfortable digs at Healing Waters Lodge to fish a private pond in the morning. The pond was simply amazing! It was loaded with scuds and baitfish... and huge 'bows and browns to 30 inches!! We walked the shore sightfishing the big trout with long leaders, sow bug patterns and unweighted wooley buggers. It was just like bonefishing... as much hunting as fishing.
After that gluttony, we fished the Beaverhead and a small spring creek running into the Beaverhead that was on the same property. Good numbers of big browns were gobbling hoppers from the cut banks...
It was a great day!
