Yellowstone and its surrounding areas are home to numerous blue ribbon trout streams. Whether you are an experienced angler or hoping for your first catch, we provide guide services in back country and front country trout streams that will consistently produce big fish. Yellowstone National Park offers premier dry fly-fishing as well as many opportunities for nymphs and streamers. We offer this guide service in overnight pack trip and single day ride form, as these Mountain streams and Lakes are best accessed by horseback. We also offer walk and wade trips along with guided 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 horses and mules. But we also have years of experience fishing every part of the Yellowstone region. We enjoy spending time with you on the water.

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

Montana River Float Trips & Walk and Wade Trips

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 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 fleece sleeping bag liners for each bag which are always freshly laundered before each trip. Some of our sleeping bags can be zipped together for couples; we have extra large sleeping bag liners for this arrangement also. Please let us know your preference.

Our sleeping mattresses are inflatable Thermarest pads and include a cover which protects them. These covers are designed to be used as lounges or chairs, so you can sit up and read in your tent or use them around the campfire in the evening.
