I'm at it again. Leaving for another 11 days in Big Sky Country. This time I will be at a family friend's cabin which is situated on Swan Lake. Swan Lake is near both the Bob Marshall Wilderness and Glacier National Park.
There are two areas I am looking forward to fishing on this trip. The first is the South Fork of the Flathead. I've read many articles about this fine stretch of water and hearing about the size and quantity of native cutthroat trout really gets my blood pumping. The second is a back country river that my dad and I scouted the last time we were doing some ATVing. The river is near the boarder of the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex. I'm hoping it turns out to hold some fish. We'll see.
My wife and I drive up from Des Moines IA to Minneapolis MN tonight. We catch a flight out of MSP into the Great Falls International Airport tomorrow at noon. From there we drive 6 hours out to Swan Lake.
Just like my "Bill and Scott's Excellent Adventure" post, I will keep this updated as much as possible with pictures and stories.
