The Fishing

The Missouri has rainbows and browns. It’s not uncommon to catch several 16-20” fish in a day and perhaps one or two in the 20-24” range depending on your skills.

Trout Montana

Coming into Cascade BIG SKY. BIG FISH. BIG FUN. Words to live by. Montana. Really big trout. And a whole lot of fun. We’ve known it for a long time. A really long time. Montana’s newest fly shop may also be the oldest. Between Mike and Kirk, we have over 80 years of fly fishing experience; 65 of them on the Missouri. Tired from working 12 hour days painting the fly shop, Kirk’s wife Beth said, "What were we thinking at our age?” Simple. Mike wanted his own gig, and it was time for our favorite Missouri reach to have some services. The locals have known for years. This part of Montana’s Missouri River is awesome fishing. Cascade was the natural choice. Never been a full service fly shop here. And it is the best location for a fly shop and motel on the Missouri. Good water. High speed WiFi. 4G cell service. Three restaurants and bars. No resort tax. A grocery store and gas station next door. Hell, Cascade even has a bank. Wow. It couldn’t get much better. So, when our good friends Pam and Terry Curnow were ready to sell the former Badger Motel and Café, we jumped at the opportunity. We closed the deal in late February 2014. Proud owners of a motel, a café, laundromat, car wash, . . . and a big dream. We spent two months working on the café building to turn it into one of Montana’s premier fly shops. We think we succeeded. Come see us to find out. The motel is our current project. Between running the fly shop, shuttles, guide trips, boat rentals and a whole lot of fun, we are slowly remodeling. New beds. New flat screens. New carpeting. Air conditioning. We think you will like the rooms. Cascade is now our home. The community has welcomed us with open arms. We love it here. We think you will too. BIG SKY. BIG FISH. BIG FUN. Come experience the Missouri with Trout Montana.
