Beat the flood- Spring Partially Guided Fly-Fishing From $1,0500 out of 50 based on 0 voters.


Cabin fever Montana spring fly-fishing getaway: 5-Days from $1,050 for two.

Spring in Montana is not often thought of as a prime time, but that is only because the locals generally do not speak of this secret. Prior to run-off, which is often difficult to predict but usually commences around mid/ early May, the fish are hungry and there can be some of the best hatches of the year. Early March most rivers typically become consistently fishable with nymphs, San Juan worms, and egg patterns. This time of year can be very productive as most of the fish will be gathered in dense pods in the slower/ deeper sections of river. After some warm days, from mid-March to April the first major hatch occurs- midges. Spectacular days can be had on all major rivers in Southwest Montana. In our opinion, this is the only time of year to fish the Madison as the pressure is comparably non-existant to the rest of the year. Somedays, any little slick spot along the bank or behind a rock will be loaded with fish taking midge clusters off of the surface. When the hatch doesn't happen, streamer fishing can be fantastic (especially on the Yellowstone) and standard winter nymph rigs also effective. Mid-April until run-off we will start to see regular baetis hatches and then right before run-off and into run-off the legendary Mother's Day caddis hatch- when millions of caddis literally blanket the surface.

This time of year is by no means a guaranteed slam; but some of the best days of the year are certainly had during pre-runoff fishing. The best part of it all is you will only be sharing the water with very few other dedicated anglers.

Recommended 4-nights 5-day, Spring fishing itinerary for 2.

Day 1. Arrive Bozeman. A member of NWE will meet you at the airport and escort you to your rental Subaru Outback and then back to the office to go over any last minute itinerary plans/ adjustments and any rental gear. Depending on the arrival time, there will likely be enough time to fish the East Gallatin, West Gallatin, or Lower Madison. Overnight in Bozeman ($40 - $200/ night).

Day 2. Guided fishing. Your guide will pick you up at the hotel or will meet at prearranged location for a full-days guided fishing on whatever river is fishing best at the time. Could be the Yellowstone, Madison, Missouri, Beaverhead, etc. This decision will be made last minute completely dependent on the conditions. If conditions are not fishable, the guided day will be rescheduled for a later date. This day will be to not only enjoy Montana and hopefully catch fish, but to also learn how the guides are rigging, where to fish, and what to fish for the current conditions. Overnight again in Bozeman. ($40 - $200/ night).

Day 3. Fishing on your own. If the river you fished the guided day was fantastic, then go back. If not, pack your bags and head to the fish. New West Experience will be keeping a 'pulse' on current conditions and will book your accommodations to suit the fishing conditions and your desires. ($40 - $200/ night).

Day 4. Fishing and overnight TBD. Overnight within a half-hour drive to BZN airport. 

Day 5. Fish in the morning or all day on Lower Madison, Yellowstone, or Gallatin depending on flight time. Meet back at NWE office 1.5 hours prior to flight, repack your gear, and a NWE representative will drop you off at the airport.

Prices from $1,050 - $1,700 including rental vehicle, concierge services, guided fishing day, and accommodations. Does not include fishing license, food, fuel, tips, or drinks.

Spring Wildlife Exploration: 7-Days from $1,3500 out of 50 based on 0 voters.


Experience the best of Montana and the birth of a season. 

Spring in Montana symbolized the birth of the next generation. The transition from a dull winter brown to a resplendent green studded with countless wildflowers is a sight to behold. Mid-May through June are the prime months to witness this explosive growth. The mountains are still snow-capped, the rivers often gorged with impressive run-off, and the abundant wildlife have or are bearing young. Yellowstone Park, in particular the Lamar Valley, can be a fantastic place to behold this regeneration of life. Although this is the wettest time of year in Montana, it is also the greenest and the blue sky looming over endless fields of wildflowers will make a shower or two worthwhile.

7-Day Recommended itinerary for two: $1,350 - $1,950 depending on desired accommodations.

Day 1. Arrive Bozeman. A New West representative will meet you at the airport and escort you in your rental Subaru Outback to the office. We will then go over maps, itinerary changes due to weather and add adjustments accordingly. Depending on arrival time, visit historic downtown Bozeman and/ or the Museum of the Rockies. Overnight at the historic Silver Forest Inn, located in the Bridger Mountains just 15-miles outside of town. Overnight, breakfast, and pack lunch included.

Day 2. After breakfast at the Inn, head south towards Livingston, Montana via the scenic Jackson Creek Road. Via backroads, head towards McLeod and the Boulder River Valley. Witness the stunning "Land Bridge" in full spate. Return to Big Timber and continue on interstate 90 for approximately 40-miles. Exit towards Absarokee on one of the prettiest pastoral roads imaginable. Enjoy the sights of the Beartooth mountains and abundant roadside wildlife, dinner and overnight in Red Lodge (not included, price range $70 - $160 for accommodations).

Day 3. The Beartooth Highway. Enjoy the day exploring the numerous vistas and hiking opportunities on what Charles Kuralt has deemed the most beautiful road in America. Overnight in Cook or Silver City (not included, price range $80 - $170/ night).

Day 4. The Lamar Valley. Buffalo, elk, big horn sheep, grizzly bears, and wolves abound in this extensive valley creating one of the premier large mammal wildlife viewing opportunities in the world. Finish the day having a soak in the natural hot springs of the Boiling River and overnight in Gardiner ($90 - $200) or at Chico Hot Springs ($80 - $200) just outside of the Park.

Day 5. Chico/ Gardiner through the Yellowstone Geyser Basin. Heading south through Yellowstone, witness the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River, the wildlife resplendent Hayden Valley, Yellowstone Lake, Fishing Bridge, Old Faithful, and the Geyser Basin. Overnight in West Yellowstone ($70 - $200).

Day 6. Head west into the Centennial Valley. Spend the day viewing the countless migratory birds, particularly swans, in the Red Rock Lake Wildlife Refuge or enjoy your own playing on your pristine high mountain lakes. In the late afternoon, head north via Henrys and Quake Lake, overnight in the small town of Ennis, perhaps if you have enough time, sneek over to Norris Hot Springs for an evening soak- or if you have an early departure flight return to Bozeman.

Day 7. Depending on departure time, head to Virginia and Nevada City to witness a perfectly preserved western mining town or head straight to the airport.

 

Pricing: Rental car with touring package, concierge/ planning services, and overnight at Silver Forest Inn; $850. Additional accommodations, depending on your budgetary wishes $500 - $1,100, full camping package $300.
