    When we found out there would not be enough water in Smith River, Montana for us to use our coveted permit, we shifted gears and opted for a two day float on the lower Bighorn River near St Xavier, Montana. We spent two awesome days chucking streamers and ended up catching quite a few nice trout.

    Beautiful pics@! And you can console yourselves that you probably had better fishing than you would have had on the Smith.

    Love the Bighorn, not bad for a back up plan.
