Fishing Guide on the Missouri River

The Missouri River in between Holter Dam and Cascade Montana is world renown for a blue-ribbon fishery. These trout are all wild and very abundant with over 7,000 catch able fish per river mile. It isn’t an off day to catch over ten fish and a 20-inch trout is not uncommon. On the Missouri, the fish we will mostly be catching are browns and rainbows. We start taking fisherman in the beginning of March but the dry fly fishing won’t pick up until April with the Blue-Winged Olive hatch.

The fishing on the Missouri will make it very enjoyable for all experience levels. There are stretches were we can fish from morning until dusk or for a few hours. We take anyone from children who are just starting to people who have traveled for years with a fly rod. We can take up to  6 adults a day (2 per boat) and an extra kid per boat if needed.  Lunch and cold drinks are provided for your day of catching fish. We also have rods and gear if needed.

We do take trips on the Dearborn River, which is a great tributary that flows into the Missouri. This trip can either be a one night or two night fishing trip. This river opens the third weekend in May. We are also starting fishing and casting lessons for those that need a warm up or start from scratch for a beginner before starting the day. We hold these lessons at a cabin on the river where we can practice on the lawn and test what you learned at fish on the water.

Fishing Rates

Fishing Rates

Our guided fishing rates per boat are $350 for a half day and $550 for a full day. We take up to two clients per boat.  Depending on which type of fishing you enjoy most, should dictate what time of year you come. Nymphing, dry fly or streamers are all good on the Missouri, but are better on certain times of the year.

We are a very family friendly environment and love helping those just starting to learn the sport. Please contact us for any more information or even to just learn what they are biting on! We hope to see you on the water!
