Missoula Fly Fishing Options, Durability, and Solitude

Missoula is the hub and these great Montana fly fishing rivers are the spokes of the wheel. So diversity is convenient logistically with short drives to the River. If you are staying at Missoula River Lodge and fishing the Clark Fork river there isn’t even a drive, it is a walk of the front porch to a waiting drift boat.

Many of our guests choose to fish a different river each day. The Bitterroot River, Clark Fork River, Blackfoot River, Missouri River, and Rock Creek all have distinct personalities that reward the traveling fly fishing angler in new ways.
Diversity and scope to a Montana fly fishing complex also assures solitude and durability. Over half of our days of guiding we will not see another boat. Yes, even in today’s popular fly fishing culture there is water that is only lightly fished. Nothing like fishing in Montana on your own personal water. With so many different fly fishing cards to play we can always find a great options. If the Blackfoot River is fly fishing slow, no problem hit the Bitterroot River. If the Bitterroot river is funky, head to Rock Creek. Or Maybe it’s a Clark Fork River to Missouri River trip that makes the most sense. We have so much fly fishing water to choose from the fly game is always afoot.
