Helena Fly Fishing

While Helena remains a bit of a secret spot for many Montana travelers, lots of anglers have chosen Helena as home base for a great fly fishing adventure for good reason.

The Missouri River, Blackfoot River, Clark Fork River and a good number of smaller waters are all within easy reach of the capital city. There are a wide choice of excellent lodging options, restaurants, and cool spots to check out in the Helena valley on the east slope of the Continental Divide. The Helena region's rivers offer what is arguably some of the most productive fishing in the lower 48 when you want trout density and size.

Helena has lots to do for the non-angler as well, including historical museums, many local art hotspots and thousands of acres of easily accessible public trails right from the historic downtown district. This extensive trail network has led to Helena becoming a top-shelf mountain biking destination as well, so a bike and fish combo trip is a solid idea here. Helena is also about the half-way point between Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks, which makes it a perfect stop over point between these two awesome destinations.
