Billings is the largest city in Montana. It is located in the south central part of the state and it has been growing rapidly. This city is popular among tourists because it offers many conveniences with nice hotels, restaurants and shopping, but it is also close to Yellowstone National Park. This area provides a nice balance for people looking to get away from the daily grind without leaving all of their conveniences behind.
There is plenty of water to fish here for a variety of different fish. Anglers target cutthroat trout, rainbow trout, brown trout and whitefish here. Many anglers pursue brook trout in the smaller lakes around town. The lower half of the Yellowstone River also offers walleye, catfish and sturgeon.
