Glacier National Park Fly Fishing

Do you dream of a summer afternoon Glacier National Park fly fishing? Welcome to reality. We can help!

Glacier Guides and Montana Raft’s professional guides can get you into the Glacier National Park 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 two outfitters in this area with permits to fish on the North and Middle Forks – come see what makes this area such a special fishery!

It offers exceptional brown trout fishing for anglers, and epic bird and wildlife watching opportunities for everyone. Learn more about what makes this 5 Day Adventure so special!

Fly Fishing Equipment

Whether you’re signed up for Glacier National Park fishing, or slaying browns with us on the Smith, you’re welcome to bring your own equipment. 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. Because of the need to protect our area fisheries, we are strong believers in catch-and-release fishing. We hope you’ll assist us in our efforts.
