Land of the Giants (LOG) resides in a magical place at the entry to the Gates of the Mountain Wilderness Area. Within 30 minutes of leaving The Trout Shop, you'll see where perhaps the largest trout in Montana live. Magic surrounds you. Lewis & Clark traveled these waters in utter amazement. Steep limestone walls tower 1200 feet into the sky. You're surrounded in wonder as you gently cruise over Holter Lake in a jet boat and then work your way up the Missouri River towards Hauser Dam where it all begins.
While the topography is astounding, LOG's fish will be what lingers in your mind. How big do the fish get? Good question. Big. Bigger, faster and stronger than the fish below Holter Dam.
Accept the challenge and be the the happy angler in the photo. All smiles.
Spectacular hatches happen and the fish do rise, but finesse is not the name of the game. Nymph rigs continuously produce the largest, best results. When your indicator goes under, hang on. Trophy Browns come out of nowhere to chase streamers in the spring and fall. Sink tip lines make a difference by reaching untouched giants.
After a day on this stretch of river, you’ll agree that LOG is correctly named.
