Yup, Mt is a carry state. Landowners can carry to. First off, I am a die hard fly angler, and tyer. I am a staunch conservationist, in fact I carry a garbage bag with me when I fish and ALWAYS carry out more than I took in. I am a big advocate of stream access and anglers being allowed to fish wherever there are fish, EXCEPT the Mitchell ditch. ITS A FRICKIN DITCH!~ A man made irrigation structure for transporting water to and from the famed Bitterroot river. My question is, Why the frick would ANYONE want to fish an irrigation ditch over the Bitterroot? COME ON! I mean really, I MEAN REALLY?? I live in Eastern Idaho abut 2 1/2 hrs from that area, I've fished the Bitterroot and do not even begin to understand why anyone would want to fight over a trickle of water when there are thousands of miles of better water available. If you studied about the history of the ditch, how it came to be built, yes built, by human hands, what it is for and why the landowners are angry I think you would stop pushing this issue. It gives anglers a bad name and reputation. Think about it. A majority of the landowners have farms and ranches that were homesteaded a hundred or more years ago. They built homes and raised families on the land. THEY BUILT THAT DITCH. And now you guys want to fish on their property? If it was me I'd wait till someone trespassed and go out and practice my trap shooting. Screw the sprinklers! I prefer to sprinkle lead! Or maybe a kinder gentler landowner will do a rock skipping class for his kids whenever an angler decides to trespass on his property. And @ TB Out here in Idaho and Montana you carry at your own discretion.
