Excellent guide on the Stillwater River. Very professional but friendly and enjoyable to spend a day on the river with. Certainly knows his business fly fishing this river, and others in the area. Can't go wrong using him as your guide. JDR of Billings, MT

Owner and Guide Chris Fleck is one of the most genuinely nice guys and a heck of a fishing guide. My Father and I had a great day on the Yellowstone and look forward to our next trip. His store is right off the main road in Columbus and is well stocked.

A friend and I, had the opportunity to spend a day fishing the Bighorn River with Chris Fleck of Stillwater Anglers recently. We had a great day, hooked up some big Browns and Rainbows and have nothing but positive memories of the day. Chris picked us up at our hotel and we launched his drift boat out of Fort Smith. Chris set our rods with the right rigging and flies for the conditions and our target fish. It was immediately obvious that Chris knew this great river well and brought us to all the best spots to fish. It wasn't long before we both had big Browns on our lines! The rest of the day we continued exploring what could best be termed very “fishy” waters that Chris knew held big fish, successfully netting more hard fighting trout. Chris not only navigated the river but offered useful advice as this was our first (of hopefully many) trips to the Bighorn.

The next morning we drove out to Columbus to visit Chris’s Fly Shop and ask his advice for fishing the nearby Stillwater River. Chris provided directions to the best walk-in spots, advice on choice of flies, and rigging suggestions for the river flow on that day.

We highly recommend you consider hiring Chris Fleck of Stillwater Anglers for an adventure you'll remember on the Bighorn, Stillwater, or Yellowstone Rivers.
