Montana Angler Fly Fishing offers backcountry wilderness fly fishing trips in the summer and early fall. Our guests access remote backcountry fisheries near the border of Yellowstone National Park via horse back. Our partner outfitters and wrangles Cameron Mayo (MT lic #10925) has permits to access some of the wildest country in the lower 48. Both day trips and multi day adventures can be arranged for backcountry excursions. Day trips leave from a trail head outside of Gardner, MT and near McLeod, MT. Multi day remote wilderness fly fishing trips are also offered. Guests ride deep into the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness and spend several days camping and fishing in either the Hellroaring Plateau (5 day trip) where guests stay in elaborate wall tent camps deep in the mountains and are accompanied by expert horseman. Shorter one night trips or customized progressive trips can also be arranged.
If you can't spare 5 days to get into the Hellroaring plateau, we can arrange a shorter 2-3 day trip with our pack partners to fly fish small mountain streams or high alpine lakes. Camps for shorter trips are not as elaborate as the 5 day trip but still offer great cowboy cuisine in a remote wilderness setting.
The Hellroaring Creek Base Camp is located high in the mountains just north of Yellowstone Park. Guests ride deep into the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness and spend 5 days camping and fishing. Accommodations are elaborate wall tent camps and guests are accompanied by expert horseman as well as fishing guides.
