Montana Happenings March 26, 2015 by Wendell Baer Enjoy the photo-journal of the last few weeks here in Missoula, MT. Fishing the famed Bitterroot river in search of the elusive yet stunning rainbow trout. Trying my tying hand at a few streamers. Unfortunately school has kept me away from my tying bench of late, so the fly box is looking a little scarce. The bitterroot did not give up many fish, but the ones it did were captivating in their beauty. The escape! They seem so happy to swim away, its like they don’t like to be caught or something. I found this old deserted car along side one of the local rivers. Not sure how it got there, or how long it has been there. I ran into the local sheep heard as I was traversing rock creek one day. The classic tail and net shot! Garret and I explored some new water on rock creek, and were quite satisfied with the results! What he lacked in size he sure made up for in color.
