Fishing experience at Great Waters Inn: Daily opportunities for 3 to 5 pound trout are a reality, fish in the 8 to 10 pound range not uncommon. Small nymphs and streamers fished on floating lines are effective. These lake fish are "rockets" peeling off yards of line at the sting of the barb. A morning spent on Clark Canyon combined with an afternoon on the Beaverhead makes for a superb fly fishing experience. We guide three additional rivers which are included in our travel trips, the Missouri, Yellowstone and Big Horn. Please inquire for specific details about our travel excursions to these renowned streams. Click here for quick link country guide.
