2020 Missouri River Fly Fishing Trips

Guided Fly Fishing Trips on Montana’s Missouri River

Join the Montana Angling Company and our Montana fly fishing guides on the Missouri River in 2020 and enjoy blue ribbon fly fishing on Montana’s best tailwater fishery. The fly fishing on the Missouri River has been excellent the past few years and we expect the trend to continue this season. Prime dates in May, June, and July are booking quickly and we recommend anglers contact us today to plan their next Missouri River fly fishing trip.

Near-term we are looking forward to early season trips in March and April as part of our Winter and Spring Trips Specials. Great way to knock the rust off and enjoy fly fishing in solitude at a great rate.

Longer term we are looking forward to seeing long time anglers as well as new faces during the prime fly fishing season. Anglers joining us on our Missouri River fly fishing trips will have access to not only float fishing on the Missouri River, but also nearby rivers and streams including the Blackfoot River and the Dearborn River, depending on the time of year.

Adventurous anglers interested in multi-day adventures should also consider spending a day on an Adventure Trip from our Missouri River Basecamp.

Fall fly fishing trips on the Missouri River are another great option for 2020 and offer some of the best dry fly fishing of the year. Strong hatches of caddisflies and mayflies make for often all-day action.

We are proud to work with the hardest working and professional Missouri River fly fishing guides and excited to give our anglers the best Missouri River fly fishing experience in 2020. Contact us to learn more and book your next Missouri River fly fishing trip.

 

2020 Missouri River Fly Fishing Highlights

  • Diverse trip offerings from our Missouri River Basecamp in Craig, MT: Anglers joining us on Missouri River fly fishing trips will enjoy the blue ribbon fly fishing on the Mighty ‘Mo, as well as the widest variety of trip offerings across multiple rivers. Our offerings include float fishing, wade fishing, and jet boat trips on many nearby rivers, lakes, and streams.
  • May fly fishing on the Missouri River: The month of May generally boasts some of the highest catch rates for some of the largest average size trout of the season. Anglers can expect early season weather, but consistently great fly fishing. The dry fly fishing, nymphing, and streamer fishing can all be excellent.
  • PMD Hatch: The Pale Morning Dun (PMD) mayfly hatch is the main event on the Missouri River in June. Prime dates are June 10-June 30. Many of our guides are booked a year in advance and we encourage anglers to plan trips well ahead of time for best availability
  • All-inclusive Fishing and Lodging Packages at the Missouri River Ranch: We are proud to offer our anglers all-inclusive lodging and fishing packages with the premier lodge on the Missouri River, the Missouri River Ranch. The Missouri River Ranch is under new ownership and management for 2020, and the lodge will be undergoing extensive renovations to improve and modernize an already great lodge. Anglers can expect the same great service and upgraded accommodations.
