THE BIG ONE THAT DID NOT GET AWAY!
It is no secret to anyone who knows me that my favorite place to go fishing is Montana. This year I decided to go the first week of April, with the hopes of hitting the Skwala hatch on the Clark Fork River near St. Regis. I have caught some large rainbows and cutthroats that time of year. I arrived on a Tuesday afternoon and the Clark Fork River looked rather muddy and high. For the previous month the river had been running below the 83 year median daily flow rate, which was perfect. But we were having a false warm spring just before Old Man Winter hit us again.
