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.

Floating the Swan River

Swan Mountain Outfitters is privileged to be permitted by the Flathead National Forest with guide rights to fish the Swan River in the Swan Seeley Valley. This river offers anglers the opportunity to catch and release rainbow trout, brook trout and west slope cutthroat trout in a section of truly “wild and scenic” waters. Although there are bull trout in this river and we do occasionally incidentally catch them, we are not allowed to target them. 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!
