We are located in Northwest Montana in the heart of what many people consider God's country and one of the best places on earth to fish for and catch trout. Although central/southern Montana is more renowned and has more blue ribbon trout rivers available, Northwest Montana offers scenery, solitude, and trout fishing that can be difficult to beat in any part of Montana or the world for that matter. Artificial flies are very popular trout bait in this part of the world, although we at JRW aren't fly fisherman and choose to employ more natural and traditional forms of trout bait. There are three major rivers available for river fishing in our part of Northwest Montana, where we have spent time polishing many of our trout fishing tips and river fishing techniques.
Our two favorite local rivers are the Swan and Thompson Rivers which are small rivers that are perfect for river fishing while wading, and are both beautiful trout fishing rivers that contain both native cutthroat and rainbow trout. Many river fishing techniques are effective in both of these rivers including ultra light spin fishing with various forms of trout bait as well as all manners of fly fishing. While the best trout bait and trout fishing technique will vary from day to day and river to river, it seems like you can always find a great place to go river fishing and/or learn how to catch a trout in this part of the world.
The bottom line is that if you are in search of trout fishing tips and trout fishing techniques, river fishing tips and/or river fishing techniques or are in need of quality trout fishing gear, JRWfishing and Northwest Montana are for you.
