Full description
Check Montana fly fishing off your bucket list with a half-day Glacier National Park trip. Fish on either the Middle Fork or North Fork of the Flathead River, which form Glacier National Park's southwestern border. These federally protected, wild and scenic waters support native Westslope Cutthroat, along with Rainbow and Brook trout. Fly fish from a dory which can accommodate 2 people and your guide.

Enjoy the experience with a knowledgeable guide who will be happy to teach you if you don’t have much experience. The fishing trips last 3-4 hours. The North and Middle Forks of the Flathead River typically become fishable around the end of June and remain enjoyable into Autumn. Feel free to bring your own fishing gear or use your guide's.

Please note: all trips require the purchase of a Montana fishing license prior to your trip.
