2020 Stillwater and Yellowstone Rivers Montana Fly Fishing Packages
Here’s a quick overview of our 2020 Montana fly fishing packages that you can book for some of our favorite local rivers. Keep in mind, all of our trips besides the Bighorn River trip can be a full or half day. Though we recommend a full day of fly fishing to really take advantage of all that Montana rivers have to offer, we know that it’s not always feasible.
Let us know your expectations and your needs, and we’ll do our best to make this trip the best one yet!
The Yellowstone River guided trip is popular because it’s just a hop, skip, and a jump away from our Columbus, MT based Fly Shop. If you’re a fly fishing fanatic, then this trip is a must! Our guided fly fishing floats will take place on the prime stretch, which includes a cold and clear influx of water that produces great trout fishing pockets. We find the places where the river begins to broaden and the water slows down, provided a great place to fish without running into crowds.
You’ll be sure to find a mix of large rainbows, browns, and the native Rocky Mountain Whitefish within our beautiful 50 mile stretch of the river’s blue ribbon trout waters, just downstream of Big Timber and Livingston.
If you’re looking for Montana fly fishing packages you’ll never forget, then booking a guided float trip down the pristine Stillwater River Valley is a must! This trip includes a handful of prime trout fishing sections and great opportunities to wade fish along the route.
Though the Stillwater River is a bit smaller as far as Montana rivers go, it comes to life just south of the Beartooth Mountains and flows northeast between the Absaroka mountain range, passing through Nye and Absarokee. The name of the river is misleading, as a large majority of it included heavy rapids and slow moving areas that only experienced guides should navigate.
Our guides will commonly float the stretch of the Stillwater that meets the Yellowstone, where you can spot larger rainbow and brown trout, and even some Rocky Mountain Whitefish!
Our guided fly fishing and lodging package has quickly become a fan favorite at Stillwater Anglers. Get two full days of guided float trips and three night’s lodging at the Blue Ribbon Run on the Stillwater, which includes a fully furnished apartment right on the Stillwater River. There’s available space for up to four people, and you can request additional guides/boats. Meals are not included, so make sure you plan ahead.
Our guided all-inclusive fly fishing trip includes everything you need for an amazing few days on the river. This includes the lodging and use of all gear, including flies, leaders, tippet, tackle, shuttle transportation, and transportation to/from the river.
We also have a Bighorn River Guided fly fishing package. We love it because the Bighorn River is available to fish year round. Though it takes a little time to get there, the world class wild trout fishing makes it worth it!
It’s about two hours from our Columbus, Montana shop, and our guides love to float along it’s calm waters. With very few public shallow wading access areas, the river is primarily assessed for fishing by boat. Our favorite 15 to 20 mile stretch of the Bighorn begins just past the Yellowtail Dam. Anglers love this river because it’s high fish count and the potential for catching large rainbow or brown trout.
What To Bring
Something that really sets our Montana fly fishing packages apart from the others is that our trips are all inclusive. That means that we factor into the price the use of all gear, including rods, reel, boots and waders, terminal tackle, flies, lunch, snacks, drinks, and transportation to and from the river.
Gratuities for your guides aren’t included, but they are customary. We have the best fly fishing guides in the area and they work hard to help you catch fish. Typically tips range between 15-20% of the trip cost.
If you’re fishing in Montana in the summer, you’ll definitely want to bring breathable clothing and lots of layers. It can get really hot during your wading hours, and we want you to be comfortable. A good rain jacket is also highly recommended. A few other things we think you should bring are polarized sunglasses, additional rain gear, fleece jacket and pants, a good hat, sunscreen, chapstick, bug spray, a camera, and of course, a fishing license. You can pick up a fishing license at the shop on the day of your trip or ahead of time.
If you booked a half day trip, we suggest bringing your own snacks and drinks, and anything else your kids might need if you booked a family trip.
