LOCATION 1 RIVERS FISHED  # OF NIGHTS
Craig, MT. Missouri River 4

After arriving in Bozeman we will transport you to the small town of Craig, just under two and a half hours away. This will be our base for four nights and three big days of fly fishing on the Missouri River.

The Missouri is famous for it’s incredible hatches, with pods of rising fish feeding throughout the day.


LOCATION 2 RIVERS FISHED  # OF NIGHTS
Dillon, MT. Beaverhead, Big Hole, Madison. 3

The second stage of this trip is based out of Dillon, Montana. This typical Montanan town offers a multitude of fishing experiences. From the famous 50 mile riffle on the Madison, to the intimate, willow-lined Beaverhead.

All these rivers offer a fabulous mix of dry fly and nymph fishing, with the strong chance that we could see hoppers early this summer.

After three days of guided fishing and three nights lodging in Dillon, the trip will end the following day at Bozeman airport where you can fly home or continue onto the next leg of your trip.




TRANSPORT

On this trip, we provide all of the transport so you don’t need to worry about car rentals, the cost of fuel, having reception for Google Maps; or driving on the opposite side of the road! It also means you’ll have one of our guides to show you this unique region and ensure everything goes smoothly.

We collect clients from Bozeman Airport at the beginning of the trip, and drop them off at the same location at trip’s end. Travelling in late model SUVs, there will be plenty of room for both you and your bags to travel in comfort.

This trip is jam packed with great fishing and there really isn’t much time to spare. If you wish to sightsee or fish longer, you can stay on at trip’s end and fish solo. Alternatively you may choose to do our two week trip that includes nine days of guided fishing and some interesting travel/rest days to see more of Montana beyond the river. These 11 day trips are booked out for 2022 but we are taking bookings now for 2023.



ACCOMMODATION

All accommodation is included. On this trip due we will be using basic hotels and small homes as the cost of accommodation has skyrocketed since covid and there is next to no availability across the whole of Montana.



MEALS

As stated, lunch is provided on the fishing days. Breakfasts and dinners are pay your own way, with the former easily purchased prior to fishing. In regard to dinners, there are a number of good dining options in each of the towns we visit.



LAST WORD

This 7 day Montana Trip provides a great chance to fish a number of world class rivers in a single week. The fishing is excellent as the trip dates fall right at the peak of the northern hemisphere, high-summer fishing season. Think hatches of caddis/mayfly and hopper fishing.

With all of the fishing being done out of drift boats, there is no need to walk big distances, navigate rough terrain, or pack waders and boots in your luggage. This is a high-summer shorts and sandals trip.



INCLUDED IN THE PRICE

  • 6 days of guided drift boat and/or walk/wade fishing.
  • 7 nights of comfortable accommodation.
  • lunches on all guided days.
  • Transportation in late model Chevy Suburban (or similar) vehicles.
  • GVFFC staff members to ensure the smooth running of the trip.


NOT INCLUDED IN THE PRICE

  • Flights to and from Bozeman.
  • Breakfasts and Dinners.
  • Fishing licences.
  • Flies which we purchase from local flyshops. Budget $30 U.SD. per day.
