Full Day Floats
We offer the use of drift boats on most rivers listed. The drift boats or rafts allow us to cover a larger area and access waters sometimes inaccessible or unsafe for wading, which can be an advantage. The boats also allow us to bring extra gear that might otherwise be left behind on walk-n-wade trips. Full day floats include a guide, the use of a rod and reel, transportation, lunch, non-alcoholic beverages, flies, leaders, tippit, and the shuttle service for the guide's vehicle from boat put in to the take out.
Full Day Walk-n-Wade
This style of fly fishing allows anglers to work a specific area thoroughly and allows access to different locations than floating. This is a good option for beginners as they learn to read the river and acquire the foundations of the sport. Your guide will typically carry extra gear in a backpack, such as water, lunches and raingear. Depending on the circumstances, you may jump from spot to spot using the guide's vehicle. Full day walk-n-wade trips include a guide, the use of a rod and reel, transportation, lunch, non-alcoholic beverages, flies, leaders, and tippit.
Half Day Walk-n-Wade
This is a wonderful trip if you are new to the sport of fly fishing or you just need to squeeze in a little more fishing before your flight leaves in the afternoon. Half day trips are 4 hours on the river, offered in the morning or afternoon. Half days are a great introduction to fly fishing; we will teach you the basics in casting, line management, knots, some entomology, and how to land fish. Got children? Don't torture them on a full day trip; this can leave a bad taste in their mouth. Half days allow us to expose the child to the sport, leaving them with a good experience! Trips include a guide, the use of a rod and reel, transportation, non-alcoholic beverages, flies, leaders, and tippit.
Full Day Jet Boat
Trout On The Fly has one of a few licensed U.S. Coast Guard Captains in Montana! This specialty allows us to access some rivers and lakes with a motor. The jet boat gets us into locations you can't get to in a drift boat or raft, where the water is too deep and wide to fish effectively from the bank. The jet boats are set up like a drift boat with oars and an anchor allowing us to motor up river and drift back down. This is truly a specialty trip! Jet boat trips include a guide, the use of a rod and reel, transportation, lunch, non-alcoholic beverages, flies, leaders, tippit, and fuel.
