Fly fishing is one of my passion. I grew up fishing the Beaverhead behind my house. I have traveled extensively fishing the world. Hands down the best fishing is the Beaverhead. All guides do a great job and you can't go wrong with any of the outfitters.

Guided float trip with 4Rivers in Twin Bridges! Excellent guide. Caught several large fish. Definitely would go back and book another trip. Great scenery!

We travel from Oregon to fish this river once a year. We always have good luck. And the fish are big and smart. It is not the most beautiful river you will fish in Montana but you will have a great time.

Beautiful fish full of fight. Can be very technical. There are many access sites maintained nicely by the state. Check the shops for what is working.

The river was filled with grass when we were there, but the fish are in there. Go into this expecting to clean your hook alot.

Drift fished 2 sections of the river on 3 different days with excellent guides from Frontier Anglers. Caught many (lost count) fish both drivting and from a few stops along the banks. Fish ranged from 9" to over 20" and were healthy and beautiful. Will do this again.

If you stay at lodging with a pet, confirm cleanliness with staff before leaving. Otherwise the next pet will mark your pets scent and you will be charged if management is duped.
