Montana Float Fishing

Float Fishing

Our float fishing is done mostly on the rivers and lakes however there are few a streams big enough to float . Most of our guides use expedition grade rafts with fishing frames set up for two anglers and your guide. These are quieter, lighter and handle the lower water later in the season easier than a drift boat. We generally float from six to fourteen miles in a day depending on the water levels and how much time guests want to spend on the water. This is a great way to access places you can not walk to.
Float fishing is super for fly fishing, you can cover a lot of water in one day. When you fish out one hole you move on to the next and don't have to worry so much about the brush behind you. We can put together day fishing trips and vacation packages that cater to your individual needs. Montana fly fishing float trips are a Montana experience you will never forget. Let us help you make a memory that will last a lifetime.

Wade fishing

Wade Fishing

We offer walk and wade trips to some of the best fishing in Montana. We teach a lot of people how to fly fish. A Walk and Wade trip is a great way to get one on one personalized attention. Your guide won’t be rowing so his full attention will be on teaching you to fly fish for trout. Whether it’s for a half day or a couple of days, beginning and novice fly fishers can quickly learn what it would take them years to learn on their own. Our guides are patient instructors who teach the fundamentals of fly casting, knot tying, fly selection, line control, reading water and safe wading...

Tenkara Fishing

Tenkara is the traditional Japanese method of fly fishing, which uses only a rod (no reel), line and fly. Very simple and extremely effective. Tenkara fly fishing is particularly well suited for mountain stream fly fishing and is a great way to get introduced to fly fishing. If you’d like to learn about fly fishing in its absolute purest form that focuses on reading water and finding fish while catching Montana trout on a small stream or river then come Tenkara fly fishing with us.

I have been Fly Fishing in Montana every year for over 20 years, and can honestly say Jim Mitchell (MONTANA HUNTING & FISHING ADVENTURES) has been our guide for many of those years. Just return today from another 6-day float trip with him and had a great week. Jim and his team are the best.

Have been fishing with Jim on our annual trip for several years now. He is a consummate host and professional. He and his guides go above and beyond not just to ensure a productive fishing day but also to provide a great overall experience. It is particularly convenient that he arranges lodging as well. This can be particularly challenging for a large group such as ours (10 fishermen) but he pulls it off every year without a hitch. I would highly recommend him for your next trip to this region of Montana.

Just spent 4 days with on the Blackfoot and Bitterroot rivers with Jim, Chris, and Jason and had a blast. They consistently put us on good fish and kept a positive relaxed vibe through every snag, birds nest and missed set. Will definitely be coming back.

This was my first drift boat fly fishing trip to Montana ..... Jim and his crew were excellent .... fished the Blackfoot and the Bitterroot .... 4 days of amazing fishing .... lots and lots of fish ... great information about technique, fly selection etc.... riverside lunches were fantastic and the cabins along the lake with sunset bass fishing was an added bonus .... definitely returning next year
