One of the great advantages of providing Montana fly fishing trips in the Greater Yellowstone area is the large diversity of fishing waters found in our region. Although large rivers like the Madison, Gallatin and Yellowstone deservedly draw a lot of attention, some of Montana's most unique fishing can be found on streams and ponds on large ranches in the region. Many of these land owners have generously offered permission to our guests to access their ranches and enjoy unique opportunities for stillwater fishing for trophy trout as wells as secluded small stream fishing.
We have access to numerous ranches in Southwest Montana and the each offer a unique fly fishing experience. Permission is always limited when we are fishing private access waters. We generally charge a trespass fee for most ranches in the region that we pass along to the ranch owners.
Several of the ranches we visit offer outstanding opportunities to hook and land trophy trout up to 28". Other locations provide fast action and high catch rates. Some locations, such as spring creeks, offer challenging and technical fishing over prolific insect hatches. A fishing trip to one of Montana's working ranches is one of the best ways we can think of to experience the Big Sky State!
"I've fished with multiple outfitters in Montana, and I keep coming back to Montana Angler. They have access to some of the best private waters that I've fished, and their guides are consistently the best I've fished with." -Scott Simonet
