Overnight Fly Fishing Trips

Guided Fly Fishing and Camping Under the Big Sky

 

Overnight Camping & Fly Fishing Trips

There is no better way to get the complete Montana fly fishing experience than an overnight fly fishing trip with the Montana Angling Company. Our overnight fly fishing trips are designed with the adventurous angler in mind. Enjoy blue ribbon fly fishing all day, followed by riverside tent camping and dining hosted by our Montana fly fishing guides. Float into camp, kick your feet up, tell some fish stories, and let our guides make your next trip your best one yet.

Great fly fishing, comfortable camping, and hearty meals are at the center of our overnight fly fishing trips. Anglers can expect to stay in high-end camping tents with comfortable cots, sleeping pads, and warm sleeping bags. Our gear boat will prepare camp before you arrive each day and break down camp after you leave so your time fly fishing is maximized. Our guide team prepares meals and anglers can expect a home-cooked breakfast, lunch, and dinner with dessert daily. We can accommodate dietary restrictions and special requests.

The Yellowstone River is the primary destination for our overnight fly fishing trips. The river lends itself well to multi-day expeditions due to its length, character, and consistently great fly fishing during the summer months. Availability is limited and we strongly recommend booking well in advance.

Season: July 15th – August 31st
