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) and Mike Lovely (MT lic # 4955) have 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) or a 2 to 3 day trip to the West Boulder River headwaters. Guests stay in elaborate wall tent camps deep in the mountains and are accompanied by expert horseman. Both locations offer terrific small stream attractor dry fly fishing. Custom overnight wilderness fly fishing adventures can also be arranged.
