Glacier National Park Fly Fishing

Do you dream of a summer days Glacier National Park fly fishing? On the North and Middle Forks of the Flathead River, the combination of crystalline blue-green water and multi-colored rocks creates outstanding cold water trout habitat, with the added bonus of Glacier National Park in the backdrop. Summers — and falls — here are filled with rods bending under eager, native trout.

Glacier Guides and Montana Raft’s experienced guides can get you into the Montana fly fishing you’ve dreamed of. The Middle Fork and the North Fork of the Flathead River form two of Glacier National Park’s borders. These waters, part of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System, are where we fish. They offer outstanding habit and opportunities for native Westslope cutthroat, whitefish, rainbow, and brook trout. We are one of only three outfitters in this area with permits to fish on the North and Middle Forks – come see what makes this area such a special fishery!

Fly Fishing Equipment

Whether you’re signed up for Glacier National Park fishing, or slaying browns with us on the Smith, you don’t need to bring rods, reels, or flies – we provide everything you need. However, you’re welcome to do so! Our guides can give you tips on how to get the most out of your setup. Rods, reels, and flies are included at no extra cost. We use driftboats, dories, and rafts for our fishing trips, as appropriate.

Montana Fishing License

All trips require the purchase of a Montana fishing license prior to your arrival at our office. We recommend purchasing one online. Most fly shops and sporting goods stores in Montana sell them as well.

    Great place! Amazing planning, preparation and logistics management. I had a great time on a half day fly fishing trip on the Northfork and learned some great techniques. I also went on a guided 3 day backpacking trip. Besides the spectacular views, our meals were healthy and tasty. Both guides were very knowledgeable, passionate and experienced. The guides as well as the service staff are great people. Everyone is upbeat, passionate about outdoor recreation, professional, safe and fun. It’s great being surrounded by like minded people. I will most definitely return to make some more memories.

    We booked half day fly fishing afternoon trip on float boat. My husband fly fishes several times a year. I did not fly fish at all until we booked this trip. We were blessed to have our fly fishing guide be Jamie Burkholder. He was FANTASTIC!!!! I caught fish after he very calmly taught me his simple techniques for fly fishing. I would recommend him every time if your looking for a smart and nice guide that definitely knows what he’s doing.
