Q. I don't own any fishing gear so will you be able to provide?

A. Yes, we have a full-line of fishing gear available to you upon request for your float trip. We do not charge for the use of the gear during our float trip. If you want to rent for wade fishing while in the area, please contact for availability and rental fees.

Q. What should I pack or buy for my trip?

A. We have compiled a list of recommended items to pack before leaving home to assist in enjoying your fishing experience. If you prefer to shop locally our guide shops or sporting goods stores will have all of these items available.

  • Camera
  • Binoculars
  • State Issued Drivers License
  • Sweater or light jacket
  • Rain gear
  • Long pants/shorts; weather dependant
  • Sunscreen and insect repellant
  • Sunglasses; recommend polarized
  • Wading footwear; waders, sandals, or shoes that can get wet and provide traction
  • Personal care items for trip duration
  • Waterproof bags to protect personal items

If you don't have fishing gear we are more than happy to provide you with them, with the exception of flies. This way you can travel light and upon arrival you may purchase your Montana fishing license and personal flies customized to the current fishing conditions and hatch patterns. We also have rain gear available since the weather can be unpredictable.

Q. I have special dietary needs can these be accommodated?

A. Yes, if we are notified prior to trip we will make every attempt to provide meals tailored to your dietary requirements. Sack lunches are available in vegetarian.

Q. One of us has a health condition, how is this handled?

A. As a licensed outfitter I am current on my CPR certification. Any personal care items should be brought with you since you will be on the river from launch to take-off and we will make accommodations as needed to get them on the vessel.
