If you’ve been reading RiverKeeper Flies for a while, you might recognize a few of these fly patterns. I’m headed out on another fly fishing road trip and was preparing my August Montana fly box and thought you might be interested in the dry flies I plan to carry.
One of the things I do, and I encourage you to do the same, is review previous RiverKeeper Flies posts of the locations I’ve fished. I’ve tried to provide helpful information about where we fished, along with the flies which were successful to us.
That’s always the first place I look to refresh my memory.
We’re headed back to the Madison River, MT for the first stop. After that, we hope to fish the northeast corner of Yellowstone National Park and the Stillwater River near Absaroka, MT.
The first week is set in stone and you’ll find us on the Madison River. After that, who knows exactly which direction we’ll head. That’s the beauty of our RAM Promaster!
Here are some posts I checked out to help plan my Montana fly box.
- Madison River – August 2016
- Madison and Yellowstone Rivers – August 2017
- Madison River Valley – September 2018
- Stillwater River – August 2016
- Lamar River and Slough Creek – August 2016
To help with your trip planning, I’ve prepared a page with links to the locations we fished during our fly fishing road trips – HERE.
OK, I might throw a few nymphs in as well just in case the flies listed above don’t get any rises…
I usually find a few other flies that work, either by talking with other fly fishers, reading the Blue Ribbon Flies weekly update, or just watching the river.
I’ll be reporting in soon.
