Fly Fishing in Montana

Fly Fishing Missouri River

Missouri River

Simply the best river we fish. The mighty Missouri’s reputation speaks for itself with consistent hatches, rich productivity and thousands of big fish per mile. Once you fish the world class Missouri you will be addicted to her charm.  The Missouri River is always exciting and fishes well March through November.

Bitterroot River

Free-stone river with many side channels full of rainbows, cutthroats and brown trout. Flows through the Bitterroot Valley with mountain views to the east and west and many big fish between. The Bitterroot is a very productive river with many hatches. It fishes well in the spring with Green Drakes and Skwalla Stoneflies.

Fly Fishing ClarkFork River

Clark Fork River

Provides the avid fly fisher excellent opportunities for big rainbow, cutthroat. Don’t be fooled by the seemingly slow and meandering flows, these fish are super strong and fight hard in this “big” water. The Clark Fork offers productive surface and sub-surface fishing, with great dry fly action throughout the summer, including caddis, various mayflies and stoneflies.

Flathead River

A glacial river consisting of three branches; the North, South, and Middle Forks, combining to form the Main Flathead River. Although the system is not as famous as other Western Montana Rivers it provides good dry fly opportunities for beginner anglers. A very scenic river with Westslope Cutthroat fishing close to Glacier National Park.
