Default Montana/Wyoming fishing trip

I am planning a fishing trip to Montana or Wyoming this summer. Has anyone fished Shaw or Gordon Creek, out of the Bob Marshall Wilderness? This one is by horseback & sounds great. Also looking at fishing out of a town called Red Lodge in Montana or Sheridan, Wyoming. Any ideas? Thanks.

You may want to consider Cooke City, MT. or Cody, WY. We really like Cooke City. It is a couple of hours south of Red Lodge. Lodging is reasonable, good resturants (a few) and close to Yellowstone. The hardest thing about staying in Cooke City is deciding where to fish. Big water, little water and lakes are all a very short drive away. It is also more sccenic than Cody or Red Lodge.

Did you use a guide, Dancing Bear, or go it alone?

Fisherlady, sorry to take so long to answer your question. We used an outfitter to take us on horseback to the upper meadow on Slough Creek. It was Ronnie Wright. His outfit is called Beartooth Plateau Outfitters. He is in Cooke City. The young man (Ronnie's nephew) that took us had to stay with the horses and gear becuase of bears. That is NPS regulations in Yellowstone. We were on our own as far as fishing Slough. It was really more of a four legged taxi service than guide. The rest of the trip we were on our own. It was a great trip. I would use Ronnie's service again. They are super nice folks. Upper Pebble Creek was the best. It is a haul to get there. 11 mile round trip hike but great fishing and spectaculer scenery.

Don't overlook the Livingston, MT area. Great fishing and a number of quality guides to make it an enjoyable trip.

Thank you, Dancing Bear, for the info. It sounded so good until you said that word, BEAR! I don't do BEAR! I cannot take or ship my bear spray on airplanes so guess I'll have to purchase more once I get there.

Deaddrifter, I got the brochure and called an outfitter. We wanted to camp out but not sleep on the ground. This trip had good accomodations and promised waters that were lightly fished, if at all. It sounded good. Unfortunately the dates were very limited and the only time left for 2007 didn't match our schedule so that trip is out until maybe 2008. From talking to the outfitter, I'm not so sure the trout would be that large, but would be lots of them. Sleeping next to a trout stream and getting up at dawn to fish right outside the tent for wild trout sounded GREAT to me!

Kytroutman,
Good suggestion. I also found some places in Utah on the Provo River, I think it was, that sounded good. If we flew into Salt Lake it's an hour drive or less to what they say is good fishing and not too crowded.
