Fishing the Beartooths

An Angler's Guide To More Than 400 Prime Fishing Spots


Book Description

This guide answers every angler's questions about stocking schedules, fish abundance, precise location coordinates, elevation, surface area, and maximum depth for more than 1,000 lakes and streams in the magnificent Beartooth and Absaroka Mountains on the Montana-Wyoming border. Many of these waters teem with colorful fish; others are barren. Some are easily accessible; others are tough to find. This book gives clear descriptions of trails, distances, landmarks, terrain, and even availability of firewood. Each page is enriched with first-hand descriptions, advice, humor, and knowledge of the area's history, including the Crazy Mountains.
