The Rivers We Fish
Guided fly fishing trips on over 400 miles of river in Western Montana – Check them out!
Blackfoot River Fly Fishing Trips
Amazing scenic, rugged rock canyons with vibrantly colored native cutthroat trout, sometimes being chased by a three foot long bull trout. This river is gradient, full of huge rocks, and lots of pocket water. 90 miles of Montana river splendor. It’s mainly raft water due to river flow, steep gradient, rapids, and often requires a experienced person on the oars.
There isn’t a more scenic river on the planet!
Clark Fork River Fly Fishing Trips
A big wide river with big fat rainbows on the lower Clark, and brownies chasing streamers on the upper River. 300 miles of diverse water you could spend over a month floating this river and see a different section each day. Streamers/ hoppers/ caddis upper river. Little dries with flats of podded up fish sipping small flies on the mid to lower river. It’s 5 different rivers in one.
Missouri River Fly Fishing Trips
6,000 big trout per mile in some sections of a huge, genuine tailwater fishery. This river is like a big spring creek loaded with hot trout. A lot of anglers nymph here and the results can be phenomenal. I try to get em on dries and streamers when we can. I’ve guided it since 2001 and this river has tainted some of my guests expectations by producing 50 fish a day 17 to 21 inches long. The dry fly fishing can be lights out with so many fish feeding that you think you are looking at a riffle, but they are fish! This is a popular river with excellent trout fishing. At times there can be fair amount of boat traffic. I prefer the 35 miles from Holter dam to the small town of Cascade Montana.
Bitterroot River Fly Fishing Trips
This river offers little dries to rainbows down low and fat cutties on big bugs on the upper section. We guide the West Fork / very top of the river to 90 miles downstream near Missoula MT. I guide the entire watershed from February through November. The upper river is more forgiving with higher fish numbers per mile. The lower and middle river has a slower, wider flow and usually has bigger fish. We can fish dry flies here almost year round. The bugs here are the reason for the tugs on your end! cutties up high in the system, more rainbows in the middle and lower river, with a good mix of german brown trout through out the river system.
Rock Creek Fly Fishing Trips
Rock creek is a true blue ribbon stream with thousands of trout per mile. We float fish in our rafts, this unique, rocky, free stone system in April, May, and June. It becomes a wade fishery July 1st of each year. This roaring stream, which can flow over 3,000 cfs and flow clear during runoff, is known world-wide for its Salmon fly hatch. Our largest stone flies are gorged by fat cutthroat, rainbow, and brown trout. The river is permitted commercially and has limited float opportunities. I was fortunate enough to work the last 16 years on this river for a good friend who is a permit holder. You will never forget this place after sometimes catching close to a 100 trout a day on dries literally.
This river is a blast!
