Face coverings are recommended as much as is practical if unable to maintain social distancing while on our guided trips. Additionally, we are now requiring our clients to ride in their own vehicles to/from the trip location and either self shuttle or use available commercial shuttle services to move their vehicle from put ins to take outs. Our guides and shop staff can assist with that. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. We are complying with the Governor of Montana's directives for "Reopening the Big Sky" a phased approach. We are adhering to strict health and safety guidelines and protocols for all of our operations. Effective June 1st, the 14 day self quarantine requirement for non-residents is lifted.

All About Montana Fly Fishing, Guided Trips, and Gear
Chris continues to provide professional and personally enjoyable fishing trips for his clients. He always does his best to see that the fishermen catch fish and enjoy the experience of floating the historic Yellowstone River. I will only use his service.
Chris Fleck and his group of guides out of Stillwater Anglers could not have been better. Thoroughly knowledgeable, professional, hardworking fellows all of them.
Chris was awesome and clearly devoted to making our trip the awesome experience it was!!
Enjoyed my float this summer and the great reception you gave me as a walk in customer. I plan on being in the area this next summer and will schedule a float with you. I enjoy your newsletters very much. holiday greetings from the Texas hill country. See ya!
My girlfriend from California and I had dreamed of one day fly fishing together in Montana and Stillwater Anglers and our guide Luke surpassed our expectations. With temps reaching 100 degrees the fish weren't hungry but Luke was determined to help us get them to bite and we all landed beautiful 15+ inch rainbows. What a blast. We are looking forward to making an annual excursion
Chris was a great guide for me! I didn't know how to fish with streamers. Chris gave me a great lesson & I caught my 1st fish on a streamer! He was ready for everything & just changed up rods to match the changing conditions on the Yellowstone. Looking forward to fishing with Stillwater Anglers again!
