Customize a guided trip
Our guided fishing trips and vacations access some of the best locations for spin cast and fly fishing in northwest Montana. We can fish a variety of rivers, lakes and streams throughout the Swan Valley or put together customized over night, floats, or pack trips to allow your group to experience Montana back country fishing at its finest.
Going guided certainly has it’s advantages! These folks not only know their stuff when it comes to great fishing techniques and secret spots, but they are also super safety conscious and familiar with the territory, so you are in good hands. Our guides are compassionate and friendly people. They are deeply committed to giving our guests the ultimate custom fishing trip in Montana.
Customize a self-guided trip
We offer drop camp services that may be just what you need. A drop camp means you’ll give us your gear and we’ll pack it onto mules and get it to the pre-determined “drop” spot, where you’ll meet up with us and take it from there. We can do a one way drop, or meet up with you again in a few days to haul it back out. Let us help you build your dream fishing vacation!
Customize with our business partners
Its possible that the Swan Valley and Swan Mountain Outfitters doesn’t cover the scope of what you need. If that’s the case we are happy to get you pointed in the right direction with other outfitters and fine business partners that provide fishing/rafting services on other rivers in Northwest Montana.
