Slough Creek

Fly fishing, hiking, horses and grizzlies

Slough Creek, Montana – September 1998

It took several days to organize and travel into Slough Creek Montana. We had four horses to manage; two to pack in our gear and another two to ride between the five of us, to get to our destination.

As we alternated between riding and hiking, we traveled through some incredible scenery. Crossing some of the deeper creeks had Guy and my mother (Josie) a bit excited. I was certain that Guy would rather be fly fishing the creek than riding 17 hands across it.

We managed to stay out of the way of the grizzlies that were reported in a hunting camp downstream of our area and were even graced with aurora borealis in the night sky that left us breathless.

It was an amazing adventure every step of the way. The fish were biting, grasshoppers were flying and Guy was exhilarated catching big trout.
