Some fishing trips don't end up as planned. September has been spent in search of Northern Pike on the Clark Fork and looking for pre-spawn browns on the Big Hole. Some of these trips have had a couple wrong turns along the way. No pike to speak of, but plenty of slough and backwater rainbows. No big pre-spawn browns on the Big Hole despite the serious presence of some normally fishy cloud cover.
Instead, enjoy some machete action, the smallest trout in Beaverhead, a 21" inch rainbow, and odes to the Epic Meal Time guys.
