Days/6 Nights Lodging and Meals — $650
us for a fabulous week of flyfishing for trophy Yellowstone brown trout,
great food and fine accommodations at Montana Spirit Guest Lodge from
September 30 through October 6, or October 7 through 13, 2007!
opening Cold Spring Anglers, we spent two or three weeks flyfishing near
West Yellowstone, Montana every Fall.
The fishing was great, the scenery and fall foliage were
incredible, and crowds were nonexistent. Last fall, we returned to the
Montana Spirit Guest Lodge, 26 miles from West Yellowstone for the first
of annual shop trips. The
trip was great, but the big browns hadn't yet moved upriver for the fall
spawn. This year, we've moved
the trip to match the migration.
The lodge is at 6,250 feet elevation, so nights are cold while days are
usually temperate. When it is
clear, the low temperature is around 20 Fahrenheit with afternoon highs
near 70. When is cloudy,
morning lows aren't as cold and afternoon highs are in the 40's to 50's.
It usually snows at least once during that time.
