I go to Montana every year for about a month. I fly fish too (that's the reason for the trip). Montana has many BLM camp grounds along every great fishing location. Some have water and pit toilets. Rates are cheap, around $6 a night.
Just make sure you dump when you can and fill up with drinking water. I have been staying mostly at full service campgrounds because my Sister joins me
and she requires all the creature comforts. Don't over look Yellowstone. I like to stay at Pebble Creek. Very close to great fishing and out of the way.
You will have a great time.

Fly Fish Montana

Hi Guys, If you are heading this way let me know. I have been working as a fly fishing guide in montana for the past eight years and would be willing to help you out and answer any questions you might have. I live in my Airstream down on the Bighorn River from April to November. But I have fished all over Montana my hole live and know a lot of ins and outs. Spring is always a great time of year to fish Montana, the bite is good and it isn't very crowded yet.

We stay right on the Yellowstone all summer and fall, but no boondocking for my dear wife!

There are many places closeby us where you can pull in and (I suppose) stay as long as you want for free (on public land) or as already mentioned, at developed sites (nat'l forest service, fish and game river accesses, and the like) for up to a couple weeks for a nominal fee.

There's also at least a couple Airstreamers registered on this site that offer courtesy parking on their property (can't vouch for their scenery) but I know they are close to prime fishing spots.

John

p.s. Be very careful about when and where you plan any springtime trips versus the weather and potential for river run-offs.

Check out the U.S. Forest Service Campgrounds along the Madison River just below West Yellowstone.

HI, I am a fly fisherman also and an initiating the wife into it too. Hey if she doesn't like it look at all the new equipment I get.
I would be interested in your observations and those of others as to places to camp and fish.
If you are looking for great fly fishing areas don't forget Washington State. We have some of the best fresh and salt water fisheries in the nation.

Hi! It's great to see so many flyfishers in the forum. I to am a flynut and a guide in B.C. Canada. There is a guide in Twin Bridges that has a Fly Shop and some cabins along with 4 or 5 hookups that he charges very little for. If you look on a Montana map you will see that there are alot of great rivers and spring creeks in that area. Twin Bridges is a small town and the home of the Winston Rod Co. There are also places to BD in the area. Good luck

Montana is my second choice . If I finish the globetrotter to a point where I feel comfortable traveling 10,000 miles at a clip. I plan to leave for Alaska on June 9th .If there is any time left .I may stop there on my way home.
If not next year

Fly fishing Montana

I find this a great thread as we're planning a 9 week trip to the Mt Rushmore/Yellowstone/Flat Head Lake area in September. And finishing it in October through the southwest before heading back home.

I plan on bringing my fly gear plus my shotgun if I can to hunt with my dog in western Oregon as bird season will be open by then. (I have an old high school chum who works for the BLM over there)

Our local fly fish outfitter does a two week guided trip out that way every September that I'd like to hook up while out there.

Davidson River Outfitters - Home

Plus my best friend from the Navy has place off Lake Mary Ronan just west of Flat Head Lake where we'll stay a couple days too.

Not to change the thread but what are the laws concerning transporting guns ? I would like to take a 30-30 and my 20 ga with me when I go .I don't know where I'm going to be so I don't want to mail it to some destination.
I also don't want to end up in jail or fined
