Sept while in MT in order to catch the hoppers in Valley gardens of the Madison River. Fish the braids above ennis and
bring lots of hoppers(oh and some PMD's just in case, oh and dont forget the evening caddis, oh and also the rusty brown
spinner falls on the Yellowstone in the Park at this time of the year too.)
That is if your talking volume of fish.

December for size of fish. I always catch the biggest fish of the year in the winter. This past December caught a 23 inch
German Brown on Falling Waters Spring Creek. One of the biggest fish of the year!!!

October on the East Gallatin in MT. The browns start to move up, but the size of the rainbows that follow
them make fishing this stream totally incredible. Plus last year we actually spotted to Whooping Cranes, a HUGE golden eagle, and watched
a bald eagle fish one of the spring creeks that feed into it.

June sulpher hatch starts on the Gunpowder in MD. Combat fishing at its best, but every fish in the river is rising.

April on the Little Red. The caddis hatch kicks in big time this time of year, and even some of the big ole browns that live
in that river start to come up to feed(some come up to feed on the smaller trout, but that is another story)

May in MD when the Hendrickson's start to show. Fantastic hatch, and the Savage River really starts to turn on at this point. People fish this
river at this time for the various opinion..go into that river with an black ant or beetle and you will catch more fish even during
the hatches. It seems the browns have a sweet tooth for terrestrials for some unknown reason.

July just so that you can start slapping the water with inch worms. If you have never fished inch worms you are missing out. THe strikes are
explosive and the big fish chomp'em like you wouldnt believe.

November in Arkansas for the start of the brown trout spawn. Combat fishing at its best, but then when you see browns the size of your leg
you can understand why so many fish this time of the year out there. Just wear eye, ear and neck protection cuz everyone is chucking big weighted flies
that can cause damage when impaled in ones flesh.

Anyways, you said mention a month.....little carried away i guess....
