Meet Our Guides

Our Montana fly fishing guides are the literal backbone of the Montana Angling Company. With decades of combined experience, we have assembled one of the most patient, knowledgeable, hard working, and good-natured group of fly fishing guides you will find anywhere. Our select group of licensed guides and outfitters emphasize safety and customer service above all else. Their commitment to their clients is evident in their hard work on the oars, professionalism, and willingness to always go the extra mile to make sure you day on the water is your best fly fishing experience yet.


Fly fishing is a sport steeped in a long tradition of conservation dating back well before our time. We, as Montana fly fishing anglers, guides, and outfitters, enjoy the benefits of the hard work of the great conservationists that came before us every day we spend on our rivers. We have people to thank like Theodore Roosevelt, George Griffith, Dan Bailey, Aldo Leopold, Bud Lily, and Lee Wulff, among many others, for the wonderful fly fishing opportunities we are afforded today in Montana.

Please refer to our Gear Guide for more information.

When is the best time to come fly fishing in Montana?

Whenever you can make it! But to break it down simply March, April, May, October, and November you can expect low angling pressure, great fishing, but variable weather. June, July, August, and September are prime time: fly fishing is great, especially the dry fly bite, and weather is generally reliable. We have put together a fishing calendar that addresses all things fly fishing in Montana you may want to consult for more detail here.

Where are the best places to stay and eat in Montana?

We have compiled a list of recommended lodging and restaurants that can be found here. Please give us a call at 406-579-9553 for personal recommendations or ask your guide, they are always good for a local watering hole or two.

What should I wear on a guided fly fishing trip?

Great question! Every angler should come prepared with sunglasses, hat, and suitable clothing and footwear everyday. In the Spring and Fall this means dressing warm in quick drying layers. Bring waders, wading boots, good rain gear, gloves and a warm hat. During the summer this means dressing cool in sun protective lightweight fishing clothes. We recommend long sleeves, pants, and water-friendly shoes. For some this means a tank top and bathing suit. Always be prepared for inclement weather. We have seen it snow every month of the year. Keep an eye on the forecast as your trip nears and pack accordingly.
