Swan Mountain Outfitters is privileged to be permitted by the Flathead National Forest and the State of Montana with guide rights to fish the Swan River in the Swan Seeley Valley. This river offers anglers the opportunity to catch and release Montana Rainbow Trout, Montana Bull Trout, Montana Brook Trout and Westslope Cutthroat Trout in a section of truly “wild and scenic” waters. Unlike so many of the better known rivers in Montana, the Swan River is a best kept secret. If you are looking for less crowds and a more intimate river float experience, add the Swan River to your list! Our fly fishing float trips are some the most enjoyable guided fly fishing trips in Northwest Montana.

At Swan Mountain Outfitters, our primary goal is to ensure that our guests have the most safe and enjoyable fly fishing float trip experience possible. That is why the price of this Montana fly fishing trip includes both lessons and a lunch or a snack (depending on the duration of your trip). For those guests who need an introductory lesson or a refresher on fly fishing, our professional fly fishing and river rafting guide will be there to provide fly fishing lessons and make sure you feel completely comfortable before you get out on the river.

Overnight Float Trip

For those looking for a float fishing/camping experience, Swan Mountain Outfitters offers a two-day/one-night float/camp trip. We start our float at a launch spot and enjoy a full day fishing on the river ending the day at the State of Montana Pt. Pleasant Campground where our staff has set up a full camp. We’ll enjoy a hearty camp dinner and sit by the fire ring closing the evening on the river. After breakfast we’ll float another full day, upon completion having covered 20 plus miles of the scenic Swan River. Swan Mountain Outfitters is the only outfitter permitted to offer this special trip in the Swan Valley!

There’s nothing better than fly fishing in the Swan Valley. Imagine yourself floating along the river on a beautiful sunny day, taking in the pristine beauty of your surroundings and relishing in the excitement of outstanding fly fishing conditions. Come experience the best of northwest Montana fishing with Swan Mountain Outfitters today!
