Garth Simkins from Cheyenne writes: I had a chance to fish the Yellowstone River in Montana this year for Paddle Fish.  What an absolute blast!!  The first fish I caught was 50lbs and the fist fish my friend Jerry Marrou caught was 72lbs!!  In 3 days we caught 15 – 20 fish, with the smallest probably weighing 25lbs!  We also caught Sturgeon, Skip Jacks and Channel Catfish.  I highly recommend going sometime! 

Mike and Mark Strasser caught some nice catfish this early January day from Boysen, ended up catching 22 catfish.  Weights varied from 6 to 22 lbs.  A great day of fishing.....but of course it was one week before the ice derby.

Jerry Wesselius writes: We did make it to Ocean for a couple days. We had a time finding them but we managed to catch quite a few the last day.  Doesn't it always work like that where you find 'em a couple hours before you have to head home. It was fun.
