Open for Business and Local Trip Specials 4/27/20-5/24/20

Angler with Brown trout on the Missouri River

We are excited to announce we will be open for business again effective 4/27/20 as allowed for in the Montana state “Re-opening of the Big Sky” phase 1 plan. We will be offering guided fly fishing trips in accordance with the mandated social distancing guidelines, best sanitation practices, and pre-trip screening requirements.

We would like to note that the 14-day self-quarantine mandate for out of state travelers is still in effect and will be until the phase 3 opening. While there is no set timeline for the phases, we are hoping that the recent nationwide positive trends will continue and we will be able to welcome folks back to Montana in the near future.

Additionally, we will be offering Local Special Trips from 4/27/20-5/24/20. These trips will be offered to all anglers in the state of Montana that meet pre-trip screening requirements. These trips will be offered at a significant discount as anglers will be expected to adhere to adjusted trip expectations including providing their own transportation, lunches, and beverages.

Our guides, like many in the outdoor and travel industries, have been hit hard as a result of the fallout from the COVID-19 outbreak. 100% of Local Special Trip proceeds will go directly to our guides. Our hope is to get anglers on the water and guides back to work in a safe and responsible manner.
