40 years of guiding experience under our belts has given us a reputation as the most knowledgeable guides for fly fishing Montana (Jared Forsythe, Outfitter #10749.) We track the river flows, follow the hatches, and understand how the wild and unpredictable weather affects our rivers and streams. We pride ourselves on being true Western Montana natives. Western Water’s offers full day and half day trips on the Clark Fork and Blackfoot, Bitterroot and Western Montana rivers where we employ drift boats or rafts outfitted to navigate these rivers. The rivers are noted for Rainbow, Cutthroat, Brown and Bull trout, while neighboring forest banks provide views of deer, elk, beaver, osprey, eagles, kingfisher, geese, and the occasional moose. Whether you are an avid fly fisherman or a novice seeking a new way to spend time in the great outdoors, our guides will suit your needs! Come join us for a guided fly fishing Montana trip!

Wondering when the season starts and ends? Our season starts in mid-March and lasts until the middle of November. The month of April is a great month to start the fishing season. We have early baetis hatches and the big guys the fish are licking their lips at: the skwala, gray drakes, March browns and blue wing olives. In the months of June and July the stone fly and caddis hatches provide favorable fishing conditions. The fall season is a great way to end the season with Montana’s spectacular dog days of summer. The fall season provides October caddis and mahogany hatches that provide plenty of opportunity to catch fish before winter, and a great way to end the season fly fishing montana.
A Western Water’s Guide Favorite! If you want the chance to fish for the Clark Fork River trout in the Alberton Gorge and enjoy going through 15 rapids all on one river trip, give us a call. We are one of the few outfitters who have a commercial Alberton Gorge permit. Our 15 foot NRS raft outfitted with casting platforms, seats and lean bars provide the perfect comfort for fishing and rafting. A portion of the trip is spent casting streamers deep into the river behind large submerged boulders and into deep eddy lines. Dry fly action is plentiful with few fishermen on this stretch of river. If this trip interest you give us a call at 406.822.8282 or book online.
