Fly Fishing

Yellowstone Mountain Guides Fly Fishing

 

Yellowstone National Park and its surrounding areas are home to numerous blue ribbon trout streams and Lakes. Whether you are an experienced angler or hoping for your first catch, we provide guide services in the back country and front country trout streams and Lakes that will consistently offer great fishing. Yellowstone National Park offers premier dry fly-fishing as well as many opportunities to sink nymphs and streamers. We offer this guide service in camping pack trips and single day ride form, as these Backcountry Lakes and streams are best accessed by saddlehorse. We also offer Guided walk and wade Montana River trips along with float trips.

One of the unique aspects of our Yellowstone outfitting experience is our combination of backcountry horseback travel and fly fishing guide service. We have a solid traditional background with Wilderness Saddle Horse and Pack Mule Camping and Day Trips. But we also have years of experience fishing most every part of the Greater Yellowstone region. We enjoy spending time with you on the water or relaxing in our Tented fishing Camps.

Check out some of the options available below or call us directly to set up a custom trip.

Gallatin Headwaters
Pack in to our favorite camps! We visit the area of Yellowstone National Park that has the highest species diversity. Fly fish for five species of trout, view and photograph moose, elk, coyote, mountain sheep and Grizzly bear (if we are lucky).

We have been guiding in the park and never had a problem with any of our backcountry neighbors in 25 years! This is a great trip for folks that prefer to have flexibility to horseback ride and fish during the same day. Or ride up to the highest mountain passes in the Park to see spring alpine wildflowers and high country vistas.

Our experienced crew of guides allows you plenty of time to spend fly fishing, learning about horses and mules, lounging in our comfortable camps, and exploring the natural world around us. And the food is simply the best that can be prepared over a campfire! In many cases, trips are put together after speaking with you and arranging a trip with folks like yourselves. Or you can form a private group of your friends or family.

Water resistant sleeping tents are provided for each couple or group of children. Our sleeping bags are synthetic and rated for temperatures to 25 degrees F. We also provide Thermarest mattress pads and fleece sleeping bag liners for each bag which are always freshly laundered before each trip.
