This is a temporary, seasonal option that we’re pleased to be able to provide. This option is to fish with long time Guide and Outfitter Dave Brown.
Dave has had his own guiding and outfitting business in Alberta and British Columbia for 25 years, and for the last several years has spent the late spring and early summer guiding on the Missouri River. This is a limited time opportunity to fish with one of the region’s most experienced guides.
Dave specializes in targeting rising fish that are feeding on Caddis, PMDs and Brown Drakes, as well as fishing streamers for the chance at a big fish. If you’d like to up your game and learn some great new tactics while others are watching an indicator float down river, this is the trip for you! This is also an excellent option while our area freestone rivers are blown out during runoff.
*Contact us if additional boats/guides are required.
If you're fishing in the spring or fall, or even early summer, breathable waders are a must, along with the technical clothing to go along with the system. Summer time temperatures can get well into the upper 90s allowing for wet wading during the day. A good rain jacket is essential also.
Polarized sun glasses: polarized lenses are a must!
Rain gear (thunderstorms can happen at any time).
Fleece jacket and pants, particularly in the spring and fall and later in the summer.
Wet wading gear-quick dry pants or shorts.
A good hat.
Sunscreen and chapstick.
Fishing license: you can pick this up ahead of time or at the shop the day of your trip.
