“Fly Fishing with a local guide on the Missouri River in Craig, MT”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

If you are planning a fly fishing trip on the Missouri River and want an awesome experience with a local guide, request Russell Dobrzynski, a local fly fishing guide who works for several outfitters in Craig, Montana.
Not only is Russell an avid outdoorsman, he's also an expert fly fishing guide.
Russell is enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the rivers in the area. He will put you where the fish hang out and teach the fly fishing skills you need to hook fish and land them.
He's popular, so you will need to request him ahead of time. We found Russell through Head Hunters, but any of the local outfitters can hook you up with him :-).
Russell will make your fly fishing experience not only awesome; but truly a memorable vacation.

“Fishing in a crowd”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

Float trip with guide. Covered about 6 miles of water. Lots and lots of other drift boats, shore anglers and joy ride rafters. Caught a few average rainbows. Friendly, informative guide but fishing quality only average. Outdoor experience poor.

“Not That Special”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Didn't love this. Scenery was not that amazing, and the lengthy time spent retelling the story about the sad tragedy of the firefighters was really disheartening. We did get to see an osprey and an eagle so that was cool.

“Missouri River”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

It depends on which part. If the Gates of the Mountains (Holter Lake) it is beautiful. If along the Interstate it's only ok.

“Very Scenic”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

You can almost picture yourself there with Lewis and Clark when they were going through the narrow canyon. The Missouri is now damned but that allows for the tour. The walls of the canyon arise from the water edge and you can see lots of wild life.
