Our half day Montana fly fishing trips last 4-5 hours from start to finish with 3-4 hours of actual time on the water. Although they sound ideal for a lot of people, we’ve found that the limited time makes it more challenging than most envision. That said, a half-day fly fishing day trip is a great choice for true beginners that just want to get their first taste of fly fishing. It’s also a great option for experienced anglers looking to squeeze a few hours of fishing into an already booked up holiday schedule.
Our Bozeman, Montana fly fishing guides typically head towards either the lower Madison or Gallatin rivers as they are close to our Bozeman fly shop and offer easy access. We offer both float and wade options for our half-day guided fly fishing trips and will make the recommendation as to which is better depending on the current water conditions, weather, and fitness levels of our guests.
