NW Montana fishing / hunting, June and July

We will be in the NW Montana area, around Thompson Falls, for a couple of weeks in late June-early July.

Looking for hunting opportunities -- coyote, other varmints -- or whatever is in season.

Would like to meet local folks to establish friendships for our return trips to MT, and for their visits to the Gulf Coast.

Also need local help deciphering Montana fishing regs

Late June/early July.

I live in the SW part of MT. I'm not real familiar with the Thompson Falls area, but I might be able to help with the fishing regs if you have a specific question.

As far as hunting goes, I believe bear season closed up there on the 15th (maybe earlier). Probably find a lot of squirrels, coyotes, and such, if you really want to hunt, though.

Down here, the rivers are still very swollen, but this is the time that the mountain lakes start to come alive. If you find the right lake, you might catch all kinds of fish.

Todd, Nice to see you on BGH! Thumbs up Welcome.

You can hunt Coyotes on Public land and you are surrounded by National Forest, in that area.

Have a great vacation.
