Montana Fly Fishing FAQ From First Time Guests

With over two decades of experience outfitting Montana fly fishing trips, we have done our best to address common questions we hear during the pre-booking process in the "Learn" section of our website. Below is a short list of the most common questions we receive during initial inquiries, please see our complete list of FAQs or reach out to us using the contact form below for additional help.

The standard rate is the same whether there are 1 or 2 people on the trip.

All of our guided trips are catch and release, fly-fishing.

We offer trips for groups consisting of odd numbers (3,5,7, etc.) of guests. Pricing is 2x the standard rate for 3-4 people, 3x the standard rate for groups of 5-6 people, and so on. There is 1 guide for groups of 1-2 people, 2 guides for groups of 3-4 people, and 3 guides for groups of 5-6 people, and so on. We do not offer any options for 3-person trips paired with only one guide, but we can accommodate those groups with the services of two of our guides.

Fly fishing is a terrific family activity, but these trips are inappropriate for infants, toddlers, and children who typically require mid-day naps. We have found that 12 is a good age, but everyone is different so check with us if you are uncertain.

Our guided trips mostly take place on medium to large-sized Montana fly fishing rivers that are best experienced while floating. The typical day trip involves fly fishing while floating with intermittent wade-fishing opportunities. We always recommend a float trip for the best experience and flexibility when water or weather conditions change.
