Now Booking Montana Fly Fishing Trips for 2021

Happy new year to all of our anglers! The Montana Angling Company and all of our Montana fly fishing guides are looking forward to a great 2021 Montana fly fishing season, full of great days on the rivers and streams of Montana. Bookings for 2021 Montana fly fishing trips are coming in daily and we are expecting another banner year. After a tough 2020 we are ready to roll with any of the punches that 2021 might bring, and excited to host all of our anglers again and share with them, the best fly fishing trips in Montana.

Winter special fly fishing trips have already been off to a great start in 2021 with a few great days on the DePuy’s Spring Creek. Looking ahead we continue to have mild weather in the forecast and a full slate of winter guiding ahead. Visiting Bozeman, MT on a ski trip and want to get out on the water for a day of fly fishing? Contact us today to book a Winter Special Montana fly fishing trip!

Prime spring and early summer dates on the Missouri River and summer dates in Bozeman, MT are booking fast, with many of our guides already looking at nearly full calendars. Re-bookings from 2020 and the optimism of a normal 2021 mean that availability will be limited all season at our Montana fly fishing lodges. Anglers interested in booking a Montana fly fishing trip for the prime dates from May thru October are encouraged to contact us today for the best guide and lodging availability.

New for the 2021 Fly Fishing Season

Anglers on Montana fly fishing trips with our professional fly fishing guides will have a lot to look forward to in 2021. We have expanded our Private Water Fly Fishing Trip offerings as well as refined our Overnight Fly Fishing and Camping Trip offerings. We have also refined our public water wade fishing options to include more opportunities for anglers interested in Wade Fishing Trips in both Bozeman, MT and near the Missouri River in Craig, MT.

Our Montana Fly Fishing Guides Forecast for 2021

While it is impossible to say for sure what the river gods will bring this summer, we are currently sitting at a just below average snowpack, with a La Nina weather pattern shaping up to bring good snow in the coming months. What does this mean? We are hopeful for solid flows and cold water throughout the summer. Not too high, not too low, perfectly average which makes for usually the best fly fishing throughout the entirety of a season.

After a strong 2020 season full of great fly fishing our Montana fly fishing guides are expecting more of the same on out rivers in 2021. We expect good flows and a strong bite on the Missouri River from late April thru the end of July and again from mid September on. On the rivers in Bozeman, MT we are hopeful for a great Salmonfly hatch on the Yellowstone River and Madison River by the last week of June and great dry fly fishing thru August and into September.
