Southeast Montana Hunting & Fishing Featured on The Flush

An upcoming episode of the nationally-aired TV show, The Flush, was shot in Southeast Montana during the fall of 2018. The episode will premiere on The Outdoor Channel the week of September 2, 2019. Watch live at 11 a.m. Thursday, September 5, 2019 and at 6 a.m. Saturday, September 7, 2019 Mountain Standard Time, or see local listings for times in select viewing areas.

The show highlights upland bird hunting opportunities in Southeast Montana with bonus footage of waterfowl hunting and fly-fishing along the Bighorn River near Fort Smith, Montana. Known locally as “blast and cast,” late-season sportsmen often hunt waterfowl at daybreak, when ducks are most active, then fly-fish for brown and rainbow trout as the autumn days warm on Montana’s eastern plains.
