The majority of our guided Montana fly fishing trips are full-day excursions to one of the many area rivers or streams within an hours’ drive of our Bozeman fly shop. A full day typically consists of 6-8 hours of “river time” on one of our local waters like the Yellowstone, Madison, Jefferson, or Gallatin. There are several small streams, spring creeks, and stillwater options in the region that our Montana fly fishing guides can show you as well. The best part about a guided Montana fly fishing trip near Bozeman is the diveristy and abundance of wild trout waters within an easy drive of town. It really takes a full day to experience a taste of Bozeman fly fishing, whether you are a novice fly fisher or expert angler. Fins & Feathers' professional Montana fly fishing guides fish throughout Southwest Montana and typically choose the destination for the day based on weather, water condtions, and our guest's expectations for the day.
Our Bozeman, Montana fly fishing guides use drift boats to float the big rivers and wade-fish the smaller waters. Floating is by far the most effective and enjoyable way to fish most of the waters in Southwest Montana. Wade fishing trips are usually focused on small streams and spring creeks, requiring anglers to be in good to excellent physical condition. After 18 years of guiding fly-fishers across Montana, we’ve found that nothing tells the story of Montana fly fishing quite like a float trip to the Madison, Yellowstone, Missouri, Jefferson, or Gallatin rivers.
