High Winds in Central Montana?

High Winds in Central Montana?

High Winds in Central Montana?

Yes. Only when the winter temperatures peak the 50F mark. We are forecast for 60F tomorrow. With increased winds.


Winter fishing is here on the Mo and we have seen lots of anglers out this past week. Winter rules apply. Today and tomorrow will bring high winds. But if you are gonna head out on the water check in first with us at the shop if you are at all concerned about the winds.

Winds is forecast to be quite heavy. Today high temperature near 50F and wind gusts near 50 mph. Saturday highs 66F and wind gusts at 60mph.

So, we would consider that pretty windy. But, sometimes the forecasters are wrong. Sometimes. Seems like they they are always to blame are relatively close on the wind forecasts.

  2. Slow
  3. Pink
  4. Repeat

Bugger Chuckers

Deep, slow, black, slow.

Sort of 4 steps there too. Dick Magill and Guide Eric Mondragon have been out stripping this past week. Dick says “Find that water that you cannot see the bottom, that is moving, sort of, and let your streamer marinate. Keep tension with very slow strips…slow.”
