I recently spent a few days down in the Ruby Valley fishing with an old friend. Mike Stack and I used to guide together down in the “5 Rivers” area (Madison, Jefferson, Ruby, Beaverhead, Big Hole), and it is truly one of the best areas to live and fish in the West. Tons of big famous rivers with countless miles of spring creeks, ponds, irrigations ditches and mountain streams in between. All of them full of trout.
Mike is a great fisherman and guide. One of those guys who lives it. Definitely not a “lifestyler”. He took me to a private stretch of the Beaverhead River for the day and we put together this edit. Enjoy, and if you’re interested in fishing that area, give Mike a shout.
