Remote Streams

We are proud to offer some great small stream fishing around the Missoula area.  There are more small streams within an hour of Missoula, that most people never fish.  Our area is known for it’s big open rivers, so most of these streams rarely see a fly.  Let our guides take you to these beautiful out of the way creeks in search of westslope cutthroat and you’ll feel like you went back in time 100 years!

On the River

 

Our guides are true professionals who spend hundreds of days on the water each year. You won’t find any college kids or part-timers on our staff. Their dedication is your reward as they offer the best guided fly fishing trips in Montana. No detail is overlooked, from top quality boats and gear, to the knowledge and instruction that will make your day on the water a memorable experience. We are so confident in our guide staff that we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If, for any reason, you are not happy with your day we will refund the price of the trip, simple as that.
