Prices & Lodging

Full Day : two customers/guide/boat $500

Day rate includes: gourmet lunch, all tackle and flies - including rods.
You bring: fishing license, rain gear/waders, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, your favorite rod (if you want) and a new 3x leader is always appreciated by your guide.

2/3 Day : two customers/guide/boat $465

This is a shorter option designed for someone with time constraints -lunch isn’t provided and these days do not start until mid-day so we do not undercut the folks paying for a full day.

The prices above are only for the Missoula Area, Missouri River spring prices coincide with summertime prices below.

Deposit policy:

A 50% deposit is due upon booking to hold dates. This deposit is fully refundable if trip is canceled 30 days prior to dates booked. Inside of 30 days, we will do what we can, but if we cannot rebook the guide that was canceled, the deposit is forfeit.


There is any number of nice places to stay in the Missoula area. The two we recommend are the Doubletree Hotel and the Holiday Inn Parkside because of the walking distance proximity to Downtown and all of the fabulous restaurants. With these two options they provide airport pickup and drop off and your guide will meet you at the hotel for your day(s) of fishing and drop you back off at the end of the day. There isn’t any need to rent a car at all!

The Grizzly Hackle Fly Shop can handle all your fishing and outdoor needs, from rods to waders and rain jackets. The “Hackle” has been the premier fly shop in the area for over twenty years and has everything a fisherman will need for his/her adventure in western Montana. They are located in downtown Missoula within walking distance of both the hotels I have listed on this page.
