Nushagak River King Salmon Fishing… and a Little Halibut

Paddlefishing the Missouri River, Montana


Had a great time Uncle Bob, Jeff and Gonzer fishing for paddlefish on the Missouri River in the Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge. We started at the Fred Robinson Bridge and worked our way up the river many miles, stopping along the way to throw set lines and snag. I caught so many different species of fish (walleye, sauger, crappie, northerns, drums, goldeneye, catfish, carp, etc.) I didn’t think the river could be home to. The goal was to catch at least one paddlefish. “The Fish of 1000 Casts” they called it and I hooked one on cast 7… granted 500+ more casts and I didn’t catch a thing. So, after catching a roughly 45 lb male paddlefish I fulfilled my goal. 🙂

 

Spring Rainbow Trout Fly Fishing


My Uncle Bob and I had a great time fishing at Dog Gun Lake this Easter Sunday. The temperature was right around 30 degrees with 10-15 mph winds. It was quite chilly but the fish were biting. 🙂

Ice Fishing Swan Lake Montana for Lakers and Bulls

Bull Trout Fishing Swan Lake, MT - Devon Morton

This ice fishing season seemed a lot shorter than previous seasons. Life is getting pretty busy I guess… Anyway, I was able to make it out a couple times this year with my Uncle Bob. Here are a few photos from our ice fishing trips on Swan Lake before the ice got bad.

I went to AZ to go fishing and see family. While I was there we stopped off and did a little shooting in desert. Good times.

Montana Northern Pike Fish Fry

Devon Morton, Montana Northern Pike

Caught a really nice female Northern Pike this past weekend.  Talk about good eating!  Little bit of beer battering and a little Cajun seasoning makes me happy. 🙂

Weekend Trophy Room

Bull Elk Antlers

Well I took a stab at helping my uncle hang some mounts this past weekend. The house has been in various states of construction over the past year so the mounts have been getting kicked around, but not anymore! Cleared some space in the basement and started hanging what I could.  Too bad we don’t have more wall space.

Ice Fishing for Rainbow Trout – Winter 2010


It was a cold windy day but we did great! The weather even brought the elk down to see what we were doing.

Wind Rivers, Wyoming Pack Trip 2011


Here are a few photos from the Wind Rivers Range pack trip I went on with my father-in-law, George Bingham and two of his good friends, Dan Harper & Don Barth.  We took horses into the Bridger-Teton National Forest/Wilderness (Wyoming) about 15 miles and camped at Lost Lake for a few days.  We did a bunch of fishing and some hiking.
