Our professional fishing guides will transport you from the fly shop and will have you on the water and fishing for Montana’s native Cutthroat trout in a short amount of time. They will do everything they can to get you hooked up with trout and back to the fly shop so you can fill your day with more amazing Montana experiences.
When the waters are high and unruly on the Flathead River, you can find us fishing our local lakes. Home to some of the biggest fish, lake fishing can be amazing. At Wild Montana Anglers, we find ourselves fishing productive stillwaters from spring through June. An angler can catch trout, bass, pike, lake trout, kokanee salmon, perch and several other species. Come fish with us on one of these wonderful stillwaters and see for yourself just how amazing they truly are.
Whether you prefer the river rocks under your feet or just want to better improve your walk and wading skills, our full day walk and wade trips will not disappoint. This is a great opportunity to sit back and really enjoy your surroundings and soak in the beauty of the Flathead Valley. We chase a wide variety of trout on our walk and wade trips. It's not uncommon to catch brown, brook, cutthroat, and rainbow trout. You might even be able to do it in the same day! Due to travel time and water levels, we only offer full day walk and wade trips (April through June).
Designed to teach the beginning or novice angler everything needed to know to successfully fly fish on western rivers. We break this trip down into 2 sections. The first half of the day involves a riverside instructional class where the complexities involved in fly fishing are discussed and demonstrated in detail. The second half of the day will consist of a 3 to 4-hour float trip in which anglers will refine the topics covered in section 1. This trip will provide you with all of the knowledge needed to be able to feel confident the next time you step foot on a trout stream.
