Guided Fishing Trips

All of our trips are designed to be fun, educational and relaxing.  Whether you are float fishing, cruising on the jet boat, wade fishing, or taking a casting lesson you will gain local knowledge, improve your fly-fishing skills and will probably hear a fish story or two.

We offer fishing trips on the waters surrounding Philipsburg, or the rivers near Bozeman, Montana. Your trip can be designed per your request and goals, or on our recommendations based on the the best fishing conditions. Near Philipsburg we fish Rock Creek, Georgetown Lake, the Clark Fork, Bitterroot, or Blackfoot Rives. Around Bozeman we explore the Gallatin, Madison, or Yellowstone Rivers.

Trips include lunch for full days, snacks, non-alcoholic beverages, flies and all fishing tackle.  Trips do not include State of Montana Fishing License, guide gratuities, or use of Waders and Boots (Rent Waders Here).

Wade Fishing Trips

Wade trips are a great way to learn the basics of fly-fishing, or to refine your skills.  For beginners you receive 1-on-1, or 1-on-2, attention to learn the basics of casting, reading water and landing fish.  More advanced anglers get the chance to explore water that is off the beaten path and become more familiar with local hatches and techniques.
