Better pay for guides is a cause that we strongly support. Higher pay ensures that we attract good quality, professional guides to our area. All fly-fishing guides in Montana are independent contractors which means they can work for any outfitter of their choosing. It is a little-known fact that many of the outfitters and lodges keep up to 45% of the cost of the trip. When making bookings, we encourage you to please enquire about guide pay, and choose the outfitters that pay the guides the highest.
