Fly Fish Montana with Expert Guides

Fins and Feathers Guide Service has provided anglers with world-class Montana fly fishing trips on blue-ribbon waters across Big Sky Country for over two decades. We create customized Montana fly fishing vacations and day trips targeting wild trout on the rivers, streams, reservoirs, and spring creeks of Montana.

Our guides are expert fly anglers and patient instructors. Seasoned anglers will appreciate our nuanced and detailed knowledge: we’re dialed into the hatches, rivers, movements of the fish, and techniques to catch them. Novices will enjoy learning from supportive, patient instructors. We meet you wherever you are on your fly fishing journey.

A Fins and Feathers adventure promises world-class fishing, lasting memories, and new friendships forged in Montana's pristine waters near Bozeman and across the region.

Experience is Key

"Outstanding two days on the Missouri with the most eclectic, knowledgeable, and, most importantly, fun guide you are ever likely to fish with. Any day on any river in Montana, or rivers across the world, is a masterclass on that stretch of water. You will learn so much, although not in my case to cast better - my problem, not Toby's - and you will catch fish. Can't recommend highly enough, but DO NOT try to book MY days!"

Over Two Decades of Experience

Fins and Feathers Guide service knows the rivers and trout of Montana better than anyone else, because we’ve been operating our Montana fly fishing guide service continuously for more than two decades.

Back in 2000, we opened Bozeman’s premier fly shop and fly fishing guide outfitting service. In 2022, we sold the shop to focus on what we love and do best: providing exceptional guided Montana fly fishing trips. When you book a fly fishing trip with Fins and Feathers, you fish with one of us—a small, select group of highly experienced fly fishing guides.

We call Bozeman (and its numerous nearby rivers) home, but our fly fishing guides are comfortable fishing all over Big Sky Country. We can customize day trips or extended vacations across Montana tailored to your specific fishing and lodging preferences.

Legendary Montana Fly Fishing Rivers

We consider Bozeman the best trout fishing destination in Montana because it offers close proximity to a diverse array of water and fishing opportunities.

The Yellowstone, Madison, Gallatin, and Jefferson Rivers are just a short drive from town, giving you access to hundreds of miles of float and wade fishing with strong populations of wild trout. Lesser known streams, mid-sized rivers, spring creeks, lakes, and reservoirs are also within an hour’s drive.

For those looking to venture further afield, we can curate a broader sampling of legendary trout fly fishing across the Treasure State including the Big Hole, Beaverhead, Blackfoot, Bighorn, Missouri, and others.

The Best Fly Fishing in Montana

Why fish here? Because the Bozeman area offers access to some of the best trout rivers, streams, lakes, and spring creeks you’ll find anywhere. We know, because we’ve been fishing and guiding here since 2000.

However you like to fly fish for trout, Fins and Feathers Guide Service can craft a day trip or multi-day vacation suited to your skills, preferences, and expectations. Our decades of knowledge and experience combined with our proximity to hundreds of miles of world-class trout fishing water allow us to make each day on the water unique and memorable.
