Troutlandia/West Boulder: Once More Before the Snow

Private water. Managed for big fish. Maybe a little like a trout zoo. But then again, I wouldn't mind a chance to give it a try.

The flyfishing community is so small and badass that sometimes you are offered an opportunity you just can’t pass up. When Will Taylor of @flyshopco sent me a message to come down and check out a stretch of private water in Blue Ridge Georgia, I obviously said yes. Walking through the lush farms and cow pastures, into a dense forest, Will introduced me to a stretch of water that was literally trout heaven. Now I won’t mistake this type of fishing for hunting wild fish in the backcountry of Montana or New Zealand, its a little different. You don’t necessarily have to put the same amount of work in here to come out with a trophy fish. That being said, the fishing was technical, intriguing, and was no doubt, one of the most fun and memorable experiences of my life. The fish are large, mean, and incredibly beautiful…

When all is said and done, however, I'd much rather go to a river like this one.

Join Mission: Montana on a wilderness fly-fishing trip along the West Boulder River, in southwest Montana's Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness. In October, the stream runs cold and the wild cutthroat are fattening up for a long winter.
