GUIDED FISHING TRIPS:
We have assembled the finest guide crew in the West Yellowstone area, all guides are highly skilled and competent instructors and fishermen. They can work with you to improve your technique and get you into shots at good fish no matter what your skill level. We specialize in catch-and-release dry fly fishing on some of the greatest dry fly water on earth, and offer two types of trips, both float and walk/wade.
Our float trips are our most common trips and are designed for the angler who likes to cover a lot of water. It is tough to beat a day on the Madison with one of our guides, truly an experience you’ll not forget.We offer walk/wade trips in both full and half days. This is a good way to work on your on-stream technique, and fish with a knowledgeable guide much as you would on your own, without a boat. It gives the angler a chance to work over a certain section of water more thoroughly.
Half day trips are a good way to work on some of the basics of flyfishing and casting for a morning. These days are ideal for the beginning angler who wants to learn just what it is all about, and is short on time. All trips in Yellowstone National Park are walk/wade.
Our guides provide the experience, boats, lunches, snacks, and refreshments to make your trip worthwhile, comfortable, and fun. You can bring along your own tackle or rent for a discounted rate from us, and our guides will help you pick out the right flies in the morning.
