Tips for Fly Fishing Broken Bow Waters

Fly fishing generally means you’re fishing for trout. The eight trout areas in the state are stocked with rainbow trout, and two areas have brown trout. Before setting off on a day of fly fishing, be sure you have a fishing license. You’ll also want to check to see if the area you will be fishing in has special restrictions or regulations

For visitors who do not have their own equipment or did not bring it with them, stop by Lakeway Bait & Tackle, a Broken Bow tackle shop that’ll have everything you need. Experts recommend that you use a 4-6 lb. line for trout fly fishing, very small hooks, and ultra-light tackle. While flies, small spinners, or jigs will catch fish, live or prepared bait is preferable.

If you feel like fishing without a guide, Lower Mountain Fork River is a great place to set up below the Broken Bow dam. Try to fish near large rocks and logs or in deep holes for the best chances of catching something.
