My partner and I fished with Mike on the Beaverhead on July 25, 2013. We were provided a very full day on a river that is heavily fished. Despite heavy river traffic, Mike structured our day in such a way that we actually contended with very few others. We actually had relative solitude on crowded waters--no small accomplishment. The trip went off as planned with no unpleasant surprises like, "Oh there will be a charge of $35 for flies." NONE of that. Michael proved to be personable, extremely competent, and utterly professional. Most importantly, he had us on fish ALL day. We landed 25+ fish that day and several were 20" or better. When I return to the Beaverhead I will book Mike without hesitation. Thanks for a great day! Visited July 2013
This March will be my third early spring in a row fishing with Mike. I couldn't imagine a more enjoyable experience. From the peaceful, beautiful conditions you fish in, to the excitement of fish after fish that Mike puts you on, every moment is amazing. Mike is very patient and mixes wading and drift fishing nicely. The best part is that Mike gets as excited as I do when I hook a fish. "The tug is the drug" - Mike Stack I will keep coming back to Mike at least every year.
Mike is very knowledgable and was very patient with me since it was only my 2nd time fishing!! He was prompt, helpful and encouraging. And the lunch was fantastic!!
Surrounded by the majestic Madison and Gravelly Ranges, the Madison is legendary among anglers with its swarms of Mother’s Day Caddis and giant Salmon flies that entice thick shouldered rainbow and brown trout from its swift currents. Surrounded by majestic Madison and Gravelly Ranges
The Beaverhead is a classic western tailwater that holds some of the highest populations of large trout in the country. Known for its technical nymphing and some great grasshopper fishing, the Beaverhead is a consistent river and fun angling for trophy trout. A day on the Beaverhead should not be missed.
