The weather is crazy here in MT. I currently live in Lakeside, MT on the Northwest corner of Flathead Lake. That storm Rob was part of dumped nearly four feet of snow on my friends farm in Conrad, MT which is about 100 miles east of Lakeside. We didn't get any of it here.  There is snow in the surrounding mountains here now, but not a trace in the yard.

Looks like you had quite the time Rob! :D That was a fun storm for sure, I made a round trip to Lewistown(Central MT) Wednesday Afternoon through Thursday night. What usually takes 3.5-4 hours, took most of 6 hours.  I love the Gibson Reservoir/Sun River/ Bob Marshall area! I haven't done it yet, but you should look into the South Fork of the Flathead River float. Either hike or pack into the upper basin and float/fish your way out. Beings it is a wilderness area there isn't any motorized traffic which reduces the fishing pressure. Basically, its 40 miles of the best cutthroat fishing in Montana. You should also give the Big Hole River and Clark Fork River a visit as well :D Just remember, Winter isn't always done in April up here ::)

Levi, another great spot is where the Thompson river joins the Clark Fork near Thompson Falls. Catch and release, artificials only and fast water. The locals use fly gear- and I used a bass plug on ultralight spin gear with terrific results. 26 inch rainbow and lots of browns the first day. The lower river is full of big fish !
