Why we love the shortest day in Craig MT

One Cold Montana Holiday Week

Does not look like a good day to come out to the MO.

Tomorrow Thanksgiving Day met be a more conducive to trout fishing.

Damn cold and snowy here in Craig MT. Really too cold to fish.

Wednesday  Snow likely, mainly before 11am. Cloudy, then gradually becoming mostly sunny, with a temperature falling to around 5 by 5pm. Wind chill values as low as -12. Blustery, with a north northeast wind 21 to 26 mph decreasing to 15 to 20 mph in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 37 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New snow accumulation of around an inch possible.

 

 

One Cold Montana Holiday Week

Temps to negative 12. Too cold. Stay home for the weekend and tie a few flies. Enjoy your family, watch football, and rest. 

Or we may see you this weekend. We have a few cabins open for those who want to stay a while.

Shop open Thanksgiving til about noon. Then we will drift home. You should too.

Still no word on the YETI Porch Cooler. But thanks for all of your support.

Think about your 2016 plans this weekend with you fishing buddies. Or your family. Give us a call and get yourself on the books. Sara, Ben, Braden and the rest of the gang will be available for any of your trout needs.

Swing on by and warm up your coffee. Happy Holidays.
