HOSTS:  Maura & Carl Johnson

Carl and Maura Johnson host this Montana weekend at their cabin in Superior, Montana. 

Is 430 miles one way a long way to go for a weekend of fishing? It depends on where you are going and whom you are going to be with when you arrive.  Many people come from all over the world to fish in Montana.  We only have to cross eastern Washington and the panhandle of Idaho to get there.  Once you get to Superior (a 6-1/2 hour drive), you will be fishing with fellow NFA members and will be the guests of Carl and Maura Johnson.  Carl has two drift boats plus a big outdoor gas grill and he knows how to use it.  Maura is a great cook. Tenting is on the Johnson's large lawn which has the softest green grass in the neighborhood. There is a big porch with chairs and lots of shade trees.  The list of amenities goes on and on.  Most of us will float the river but there are places to bank fish.  The $25 fee covers meals for Friday dinner through Sunday lunch.
