Check Montana fly fishing off your bucket list with a Full Day Glacier National Park Trip. You’ll fish on either the Middle Fork or North Fork of the Flathead River, which form Glacier National Park’s southwestern border. These federally protected, Wild and Scenic waters support native Westslope Cutthroat, along with Rainbow and Brook trout. You’ll fly fish from a dory which can accommodate 2 people and your guide.

Guides are very knowledgeable. If you don’t have much experience they are happy to teach you. These trips last all day and include a delicious, largely locally sourced and organic lunch on the river. The North and Middle Forks of the Flathead River typically become fishable around the end of June and remain enjoyable into autumn. Bring your own gear or use your guide’s.

Montana Fishing License

All trips require the purchase of a Montana fishing license prior to your arrival at our office. We recommend printing one online — you can click HERE to access the Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks website. Most fly shops and sporting goods stores in Montana sell them as well.

Glacier National Fly Fishing Meeting Notes

Guests should call our office the day prior to departure at 406-387-5555 to check-in. In July and August, meet your guide at our office at 8:30 AM. In September, due to cooling temperatures, meet your guide at 10:30 AM. We are located 1.5 miles west of West Glacier on Highway 2. Look for our Glacier Guides and Montana Raft sign on the north side of the highway between mile marker 151 and 152. Our property is just off the highway tucked in the trees. When you see our sign turn to the north and you will see our office shortly thereafter.
