About The Fishing...

Our fishing features the Missouri River, a world class tailwater fishery.

From Holter Dam to Craig, approximately 3,500 trout per mile inhabit the Missouri which resembles a giant spring creek flowing over fine gravels and lush weed beds.  Massive mayfly and caddis hatches provide unmatched opportunities for rainbows and browns averaging 15 to 17 inches.  Here clients enjoy casting small flies and hooking hard fighting, jumping Missouri River trout.

Cost per guided day trip on the lower Missouri River (below Holter Dam) is $475.00 (1 or 2 persons per drift boat, lunch, flies and ground transportation to and from the river included).

From Hauser Dam to the mouth of Holter Lake approximately 2,000 trout per mile inhabit the Missouri.  Consistent mayfly and caddis hatches provide numerous opportunities for hooking heavy bodied trophy rainbows and browns averaging 22 to 24 inches.  Rainbows outnumber browns approximately 8 to 1. 

Cost per guided day trip on the upper Missouri River (below Hauser Dam) is $575.00 (1 or 2 persons per jet boat, lunch, flies and ground transportation to and from the river included).

Float tubing a picturesque mountain lake provides another unique fishing experience which many of our clients have enjoyed.  Montana River Guides will furnish all float tubes and fins.

Most lakes are private rainbow fisheries with fish averaging 18 to 20 inches.  Larger fish from 4 to 6 pounds are likely.  One can expect to fish various damselfly, callibaetis and caddis nymphs, as well as, damselfly, callibaetis and terrestrial dry flies.

Cost per guided lake day trip is $450.00 (2 anglers per guide, lunch and ground transportation to and from the lake included).

Rod fees often charged by landowner as a trespass fee are additional.
