    Default How Crowded?

    How crowded are the streams on the southern stretch of the Parks in early August? Willow, Sheep, Montanta, etc. I have never fished that area before and am thinking about it. Can you get away from the crowds, or is it combat fishing? Thanks for the info!

    Most of the hupla is all about Kings. You can enjoy yourself after the 4th of July weekend, on any of the creeks in question. September is the very best of times for fishing, as others turn their focus to hunting.

    Not very. Yeah, there will be people, but if you're willing to take a short walk from the highway and if you can fish the weekdays instead of the weekend you should be able to find some degree of solitude.

    Thanks. That's encouraging. Looking at the charts, it seems like I should be able to get into some silvers during the first week of August. Anybody have experience around then?

    Yep. Look forward to a lot of pink & silver salmon fishing. It's a blast.

    I fish Montana for Silvers in August. It is usually not crowded. It is really fun to fish the creek for pinks and chums, until you get tired of catching them, them move down to the mouth for silvers, get your limit, and come back the next day for more!

    Vibrax works well during that time of year, as well as coho flies.
