I spent a week in the Billings area. I fished the Yellowstone for smallies and trout on different days. We did pretty good on the smallies but no big ones 2 lbs. max, the bigger ones are further downstream. Of course the trout are all over but mainly west of Billings. I fished a small stream and lake near Red Lodge that was really sweet, and caught a bunch of small native rainbows, and browns. Also fished Cooney for walleyes and did ok, we took 5 home from that trip. Here's a few pics, sorry not all fishing afforded easy photo ops.

I dunno why some of these pics are chopped off but they are. I usually let all fish go, but sometimes you gotta just fry some up.

Those are some beautiful bass. I bet that was a riot considering you were fighting them and the current. I wish I knew how to fish rivers better.

Yeah, the current made it even more fun,thus having a good drag became more important than lake fishing. My Pflueger's held up fine.

is that a new flavor of mountain dew? fish flavored yum!!!!!
I could tell you the secret lure that was the "Ticket" for them, but then that would save you so much money in gas and lure purchases, it would take all of the fun out of it.
