THE BLACKFOOT RIVER
The Blackfoot is the beautiful river that Norman McLean wrote
about in the book " A River Runs Through It ". It begins in
the high mountains of western Montana and flows for approximately
130 miles before it joins the Clark Fork river near Missoula.
The Blackfoot is one of the prettiest rivers in Montana and
offers fly fishing opportunities for browns, rainbows, cutthroats
and bull trout. The Blackfoot is classic troutwater and with
hatches of Skwala Stoneflies, Salmonflies, Golden Stones, Baetis,
March Browns, Caddis, Green Drakes, Midges, Pale Morning Duns
and Hoppers it provides wonderful dry fly fishing.
We can provide day trips on the Blackfoot River and we can
also arrange for overnight lodging in a beautiful new 3 bedroom
log cabin located on one of the most scenic portions of the
THE BIG HOLE RIVER
The Big Hole is another beautiful river in southwest Montana
that offer a wide variety of fly fishing opportunities for rainbows,
browns, brookies and grayling. From the flat meadow water in
the upper Big Hole Valley through the pocket water in the rocky
canyons and the grassy undercut banks on the lower sections
the Big Hole is a productive river with spectacular scenery
providing great dry fly, nymph and streamer fishing.
THE SUN RIVER
The Sun river begins in the remote Bob Marshall Wilderness
Area in western Montana and is absolutely stunning as it emerges
from the rugged Rocky Mountain Front. Flyfishing for rainbows,
cutthroats, browns and brookies in this gorgeous setting is
a great day trip to include when fishing the Missouri. In some
parts of the upper river the bottom of the stream is solid bedrock
and this area is a geologists delight with magnificent formations
including clearly delineated thrusts, folds, uplifts and layers
of sedimentary rock illustrating how this land was formed.
Of course we have a few that are too special to put on the
World Wide Web, contact us for more info.
