It doesn’t matter what your skill level is, Bent Fly Fishing has a guide for you.
For those of you who have always wanted to learn how to fly fish, you have found the right place. Maybe you inherited grandpa’s old fly rod and it’s just been sitting collecting dust waiting for you to learn, or maybe your significant other is a master at the trade but not the best teacher for you. We are here to help. All of our guided fly fishing trips are executed from either a drift boat or rubber raft on a body of water. We conduct our lessons once the boat is launched in the water and then continue instruction throughout the rest of the trip. Bent Fly Fishing guides are knowledgeable in all aspects of fly fishing, from reading the water and navigating the boat to tying on flies and netting fish.
For the more experienced angler, our guides can offer insight into the specific body of water that you are fishing as well as our tried and true tactics for getting fish into the boat. Let us know when booking what your skill level is and we may suggest a river with travel.
OUR MISSION IS ALL ABOUT YOU. OUR FISHING GUIDES HELP TO CREATE LASTING MEMORIES ON THE WATER. BY SHOWCASING THE MONTANA WAY OF LIVING AND OUR LOVE OF FLY FISHING AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS, WE HOPE TO SPARK THOSE SAME FEELINGS IN YOU!
Most of our fishing trips take place in the western half of Montana, this part of the state is full of rivers, lakes, and streams of all sizes. Native westslope cutthroat trout, bull trout, and whitefish still swim the waters with the addition of rainbow trout, brown trout, lake trout, brook trout, and even some bass in certain places. Trout thrive in the cool, clear waters of Montana where most of the water comes from snow melt. We follow the snowpack levels closely during the winter months as it can impact the upcoming fishing season. Well-timed rain also plays an important role in river health. While the heavy spring rains put can a damper on fishing our freestones, a rainy day in August can be just what the river is craving.
There is always something to learn by spending a day out on the water whether it is fishing or life-related. We would love the opportunity to show off Montana’s beauty from our perspective, get ahold of us to get your fishing trip on the books.
Our fishing guides are licensed and insured in Montana and trained in first aid and CPR. Your guided fishing trip will take place on a boat either on a lake or in a river.
