Had a great time while we were over there. Caught some nice fish and got to play on the river. :chicken:

Beautiful day but the river looked high and off-color. What type of fish were you catching? (I'm anxious to fish again. I live near Helena and the river has been to high and blown out for fly fishing)

River was really high. As you can see, gravel bars weren't even an issue. We were at intake catching paddlefish, cats, and sturgeon. Couple 10+lb cats and several 30+" sturgeon. One was over 40. Had a really fun evening run down there too. The video is much better. I'll try to get it uploaded as well.

Honestly, we had our best luck with nightcrawlers for both sturgeon and cats. I did catch a chub and use that for catfish bait the one night there and did well, but the crawlers were King. Caught the biggest and most fish. Of course... That was 3 weeks ago, and fish will be fish. Good luck! ;)
