The Bighorn River hosts some of the finest trout fishing in North America. It’s a tail water fishery and the regulated flow maintains clean, clear, cold water, rich insect life, and it fishes well year-round. Whether you are a seasoned fisherman or a novice, we will tailor the day to suit the experience you are looking for, with a guide that is excited to have fun and show you a good time.
Although we can’t predict exactly what the fishing will be like on any given day, we take what the river gives us and fish to current conditions, whether its dry flies, streamers, nymphing or a combination of the three. If you are interested in a specific fly-fishing technique, let us know and we can suggest times of year that will be best for that type of fishing.
Guided Fly-Fishing Day Trip on the Bighorn River
While we do some fishing from the drift boat, we feel that the most authentic fly-fishing experiences occur out of the boat and we like to get our clients feet wet and into the river to experience the thrill of catching fish while wading. One to two anglers per boat. Includes: Guide, transportation, rods, flies, terminal tackle, and lunch. Not included: fishing license and gratuity. Trips available year round.
Guided Fishing Trips on Bighorn Lake
Bighorn Canyon and Bighorn Lake are Montana’s best hidden treasures and are a must see. If you’re looking to hook into some small mouth bass, trout, or want to catch surface feeding carp on a dry fly, then this experience is for you. The trip will be customized to your skill level and desired experience, and although we specialize in fly-fishing, we can accommodate spin fishing. We depart from the Ok-A-Beh marina into the Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area to view the dramatic scenery and to fish off the steep walls and narrow canyons, in our 18-foot Smoker Craft. Trips are available from Memorial Day to Labor Day, inquire on availability outside of these dates. Includes: Guide, transportation, flies and tackle, rods, beverages, lunch. Not included: Fishing licenses and gratuity.
