A good friend and I spent 6 days and over 100 backpacking miles fishing/exploring the Bob Marshall wilderness area. Some of the notable waters we fished were Young's creek, Gordon's creek and South Fork of the Flathead river. We did see a few anglers on Young's creek but all other days we had the rivers all to ourselves.

The hike in was to the South Fork is pretty grueling 23+ miles, most of the hike in had been burned by wildfires some years back. This eliminated the option for shade!

The fishing was phenomenal for west slope cutthroat trout. All were caught on dries, you could fish a run until you were bored. Seemed like there were endless amounts of fish in each hole. The water is some of the clearest/ cold water I have ever seen!

Some of the fish I managed to pull from the area.....

 I am just happy I was able to knock this trip off my bucket list, this area leaves me with many wonderful memories!
