You found the right place!
The best trout fishing here in the Russell Country Central Montana area can generally be found in or near the mountains.
Many folks are not aware that the Judith River even exists given its lack of visibility and location.
However, if you strike up a visit with a local while having coffee, one is sure that good fishing directions will take place.
"Brookie's," rainbow trout and brown trout can be found on the upper end of the Judith River and in several creeks and dams as well. At times, cat fish can be found on the lower end of the river.
Lets Go Fishing.
A valid fishing license is required for all types of fishing on state waters. To fish in Montana, most anglers need two licenses: a Conservation License and a Fishing License.
A Conservation License is needed before you can buy any fishing or hunting license that Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) issues. Conservation license applicants are required to provide their social security number in addition to the information usually requested. A valid driver's license or a valid photo ID is required to purchase a license.
A fishing license allows a person to fish for and possess any fish or aquatic invertebrate authorized by the state's fishing regulations. It is nontransferable and nonrefundable. The license enables one to fish from March 1 through the end of February of the following year.
Keep it or let it go?
Once you have caught your fish, you have a decision to make. You can either keep the fish and eat it, or release it.
Releasing a fish allows it to survive to be caught again another day by another angler, or maybe even yourself. With a little luck, the fish will grow larger, and it also may have a chance to reproduce.
Fish are good to eat, and there is nothing wrong with keeping a fish to eat if the law allows. Fish tastes it's best when fresh, so don't try to fill your freezer. Keep the amount of fish you will need for one meal, and eat it right away.
