We fished the Beaverhead, Big Hole, Jefferson, Ruby and Madison Rivers, a couple of spring creeks and a high altitude alpine lake, either wading or floating, where we caught and released numerous brown, rainbow, cutthroat and brook trout.

Crane Meadow Lodge, Twin Bridges, MT Fishing Report for 9/13 through 9/19/2008 by Rick Grassett (9/22/2008)
I was in Twin Bridges, MT last week hosting a group of fly anglers at Crane Meadow Lodge (www.cranemeadow.com) on what was our 7th trip there. The timing was just right this year with the weather being perfect, frost on the ground or mid 30s in the morning, warming to the mid 70s with almost no humidity. Unlike several other years when water flow was an issue, we had plenty of water this year due to a good snow pack last winter and spring.
