Attraction details
Owner description: Montana is legendary for its fly fishing. Experience it for yourself in the waters that surround Glacier National Park. We offer daily and multi-day guided trips on the beautiful North and Middle Forks of the Flathead River, and multi-day trips into the Great Bear Wilderness to fish the acclaimed Upper Middle Fork. This is prime habitat for eager Westslope cutthroat trout and rainbow trout that you catch and release. Bring your own gear or let us supply everything you need. A Montana fishing license is required for all fishing trips with the exception of private pond fishing.

We initially booked one half day guided fly fishing trip, but ended up doing TWO half-day and ONE full day trips! In part, our multiple day bookings included the incredible staff working the outdoor center. We had some unusual (and last minute) requests that were always met. CHRIS was our first tour guide. We learned so much about the waters, and where he said fish would be, they were. His guidance on casting, stripping, and hooking the fish were spot on! Our second day we once again had Chris with the addition of a second boat lead by KELSEY. The full day was masterful! Again, the day on the Middle Fork was full of catching fish (bigger than the first day), and mastering our styles! The final day was impromptu and last minute and we had the opportunity to fish with TATE, who took us to new waters and navigated our raft through more Flathead Beauty! Whether it's CHRIS, KELSEY, or TATE you won't go wrong! Personable, helpful, and patient are just a few of their qualities during these guided trips. The time went by so quickly. Take your camera for some incredible pictures!

I just experienced this trip for the second time, and again rate it amongst my all time favorite wilderness river fly fishing trips. The entire staff, from reservations, to wranglers to the river guides is professional, skilled, and top notch. Being guided by Darwon Stoneman, the owner of Glacier Raft Company, and a veteran of over 150 descents down this river is an experience like no other. The food was outstanding, the scenery unmatched, and the numbers of cutthroat trout that land in your net is the most prodigious I have ever experienced. I will return to do this trip again, and again, as I thrive on the healthy dose of remote wilderness, beautiful scenery, and unmatched fly fishing this trip provides.

We have done a little fly fishing before, but this was our first boat trip. Our guide Chris was very helpful and patient giving us some instruction and untangling lines when it was needed. We went on a really cold, wet, and sometimes very windy day. The fish were not biting. But despite the less than ideal weather, as a group we probably caught maybe 10 fish. Chris knew where to put us on fish and the best flies for the conditions. The lunch was pretty good, and the scenery was outstanding. A really nice day.

Great experience for all skill levels and top notch guides - Shane, Scott and Dave. Two day fishing package left me wanting to stay the rest of the week. I had not done any fly fishing for river trout prior to this trip, but Shane and Scott managed to get us on fish early and educate throughout the float. These guys were passionate, patient (mending is not as easy as it sounds!) and professional the entire time. I will highly recommend this outfit and can't wait to head back out there.

First time with Glacier Anglers, but not the first time with fishing guides. Scotty, Dave, and Shane made our 2 days of fishing a tremendous experience. Their hard work, patience, and excellent teaching skills with mostly beginners in our group made the trip great. And they were just fun guys to spend 2 days on the river with! These guys obviously love their jobs and they hooked me on fly fishing. I checked this off my bucket list. They put it right back on. Can't wait to do this again someday. (One day 3 boat fish count was 193...Seriously!)
