Bull River Montana Alps

Montana Alps
If you have ever visited the European Alps, there is a great (Montana) Idaho fly fishing location in the lower 48 that is just as beautiful. It is the Bull River and it is located in the Cabinet Mountains in NW Montana. Part of the Cabinets is contained in the Scotsman Peaks Wilderness Area. Enjoy the photos attached herein, which I took on April 1st, and this email which I sent to a blog reader in Alaska only last week.

Dear David,

The Bull is perfect right now. Here are a few photos I took today while scouting conditions. We also have had a mild winter and thus far the snow fall has been about 6 feet below average. We have already had spring conditions with highs in the upper 60's and lows around freezing. The plus is we have had little rainfall, so snow melt has been gradual so rivers are much lower than normal and the water is still fairly clear. Midge hatches are already happening and the stoneflies should show soon. I have attached a few photos of the Bull for your pleasure. 


Bull River Cutthroat
If you have never been up highway 58 between highway 2 and 200 in Montana, it is a real treat! Having visited Europe, I compare this drive and float to the Alps in Italy, Austria, Germany and Switzerland. It is absolutely incredible. If you come up, make sure to drive up to Bull Lake and take in the vistas.  

While in the area, check out the intersection of the Moyie and Kootenai Rivers and with an email I can give you directions to my favorite spot. If the water is not too high, you can cross the Moyie and get in some superb fly fishing. Also, don't forget to check out the St. Joe while you are here, and there is a possibility the north fork of the Coeur d'Alene may be fishable as well.  

Good luck and send some photos. I may put them in my blog. PS-a float tube or pontoon boat may help.

Please remember, we encourage catch and release fishing only at this blog. Measure your catch, take a quick photo and then release her/him. Plastic mounts are easy to order and last a lot longer than the real thing. Email me and I will recommend a guide for you who really knows the Bull River area.

Hard takes and tight lines to you all.
