Our outfitter works directly with our anglers to build custom Montana fly fishing trips, catering to personal preferences. For some this could be a day trip for the whole family on one of our famous rivers, while for others this could be an all-inclusive lodging and fishing package at one of Montana’s finest fly fishing lodges. Whatever the trip, we work hard to make every anglers’ fly fishing trip, their best yet.

Our Montana fly fishing guides have decades of combined experience across all of Montana’s famous waters. As an outfitter we are committed to working with the best fly fishing guides in Montana. All of our guides are all dedicated professionals that have the experience and hard work ethic to make every angler’s trip truly exceptional.

Our homewaters are the many rivers, streams, and lakes surrounding our home in Bozeman, MT and our Missouri River Basecamp in Craig, MT including: the Yellowstone River, the Missouri River, the Madison River, the Gallatin River, the Blackfoot River, the Paradise Valley Spring Creeks and Yellowstone National Park as well as many lesser-known waters well off the beaten path.

What Our Clients Say


My wife and I had a wonderful experience fishing with Montana Angling Company. Max was able to teach my wife to fly fish from scratch and she caught 5-10 really nice 18-20” fish her first time! He was very patient and knowledgeable. Thank you for such an amazing day! I would highly recommend from beginners to advanced fly fishermen and women.

Max is the perfect guide and teacher. My wife and I are newly retired and wanted to try fly fishing for the first time. We learned tons and caught lots of trout float and wade fishing. Can't wait to come back for our sophomore course. Thanks Max and Peter.

I've been guided by Max and his guides on the Yellowstone, Madison, and Missouri rivers and have had a blast every time. Their guides are knowledgeable, respectful, and patient--even when I tangle my line. The Montana Angling Co is a great choice whether it's your first time fly fishing or you're a seasoned pro--these guys know where the fish are and what they're hungry for.

What Our Clients Say


We had an awesome experience with Montana Angling Co. Max worked with us to make sure we had the perfect day to go fishing. Our guide was Guy Flynn, and he was great. He was very patient with us and we enjoyed the conversation. He was putting us on fish all day long. Overall, we had a great experience, and I will definitely use Max's company again on our next trip to Montana.
