Field & Stream, June 2008 Excerpt from The Montana Experiment
by Joe Cermele
"After lunch at the Thompson Grill, we drove back through Snider and turned off into a small campsite to access a different stretch of the Thompson [River]. Here we found glassy pools, fast -water pockets, and good dry-fly water. Within my first five casts, I was into a rainbow that went a solid 20 inches. We picked our way through some whitefish to score a few smaller browns on nymphs. Mark also dropped another hog on a black eddy. You can wade and walk the banks for miles here."
