Blackfoot River Fly Fishing
The Big Blackfoot River, made famous in the movie “A River Runs Thru It,” is a gravel bottom, boulder-strewn “Freestone” river running from the Continental Divide near Lincoln, down thru the Blackfoot Valley where it joins the Clark Fork River at Bonner, Montana. A Blackfoot River fly fishing trip will provide you with one of the most memorable fishing experience of a lifetime!
This is one of the most beautiful, scenic rivers in Montana and it is hard to keep your eyes on your fly when you’re surrounded by breathtaking scene of pine forests and towering cliffs.
And the fishing? Awesome! Our guides know it like their own backyards and know how to help you get these powerful, fast-water fish on the end of your line! Even first time beginners enjoy great success, as the aggressive West slope Cutthroat is not as finicky as some trout. The prolific hatches of huge Salmon Flies, Golden Stones, big Mayflies, Caddis, and a smorgasbord of terrestrial insects work these opportunistic feeders into a fly-grabbing frenzy.
Most fishing is done from a raft using big dry flies on a short line in fast, broken, gin-clear water filled with Westslope Cutthroat, Rainbows, Browns, and the huge Bull Trout, better known as Dolly Varden. Enough cannot be said of the beauty of the Big Blackfoot and the quality of this fantastic fishery and the level of knowledge and experience our guides have on this pristine freestone river.
