Thanks for visiting us at Montana Fishing Outfitters
We are here to help you make your Montana fly fishing trip come to reality. We consider ourselves Montana’s Most Unique Guide Service because we offer top-notch angling adventures with our team of professional fly fishing guides throughout Montana. From our home water, the trout-filled Missouri River in central Montana, to the classic Blackfoot River in western Montana to the picturesque Yellowstone River in Paradise Valley, we get around.
We have been chasing trout since across Montana since the mid-90s, but Montana Fishing Outfitters was founded from a lifetime of angling across the country and around the world. Our roots are in Montana, it's where we love to live, and we look forward to sharing our passion for all things fly fishing with you; amazing big sky landscapes, sparkling rivers, days afloat with good friends, and we’ll definitely catch some trout too!
We've got a wide variety of blue-ribbon trout waters, top-shelf professional fly fishing guides, and detail-minded personal customer service just waiting for your arrival. Let us help make your Montana fly fishing trip happen this year and you will not be disappointed.
It has been a month of classic spring rocky mountain weather here, with more on the way; 80s tomorrow, 50s by Friday. The north wind has been relentless, even on high pressure days when we should see gentle downstream island breezes, and we are more than ready to see it head back to Canada for the summer.
Tomorrow, Friday April 29th, is the annual gathering of the Upper Missouri Watershed Alliance in Craig, Montana. 6PM at the Craig Fire Hall. You should definitely come and here's why:
Overcast skies, highs in the 50's, a bit of precipitation - perfect springtime fishing conditions in Montana! Baetis madness is set to commence the next few days, and hopefully we'll see the March Browns make an appearance too. Gear up, fill your thermos, and pack your reach cast for some fantastic fishing.
After a week of beautiful weather and mostly sunny skies, which has triggered some early snowmelt and off color water conditions in many of our freestone rivers around the state, the first real spring storm of the season is about to descend on the Big Sky state. Up to four inches of precipitation is forecasted in the coming days with high temps dropping into the forties by Friday.
With a whole extra day on our hands this year it seems like there should be plenty of time to get ready for the impending fishing season, but it has snuck up on us once again. Our first guide trips of the season head out next week and our first guide school session kicks off in less than three weeks - it's time to get cracking! We've been busy the last couple months talking about fishing, and now it's time to actually go fishing.
