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.

What to Bring With You

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.

Checklist:

What's Included

Trip includes the use of all gear, flies, leaders, tippet, tackle, non-alcoholic beverages, shuttle transportation, and transportation to and from the river. Full day trips also include lunches and snacks.

The Day of Your Trip

The day starts and ends at a pre-arranged location, to and from which we shuttle you to the river. You will likely be on the river fishing by mid-morning. If yours is an all-day trip, we stop mid-day for a streamside lunch and the opportunity for additional wade fishing, relaxation, and nature watching.

Custom Guided Trips

We mainly fish the Stillwater, Yellowstone, and Bighorn Rivers, but trips can be made to other waters out of the Columbus/Stillwater Valley area with prior arrangements. While our focus is on fly fishing, spin fisher persons and non-fishing passengers are also welcome.

Watercraft and Conservation

Depending on the river fished and the prevailing water conditions, we use either rafts or drift boats for our guided float trips. These crafts comfortably accommodate two anglers, all of their personal belongings, extra gear and tackle, plus a cooler for lunch and beverages. During the trip, we practice catch and release plus other conservation measures and practices.

Gratuities

Gratuities are not included in the prices listed above. Tipping your guide your personal choice, based on your degree of satisfaction with the guide's services. Generally, the amount should reflect your guide's effort, helpfulness, attitude and courtesy. If you would like guidance on determining a gratuity we would be glad to help.
