South Fork Flathead River, Montana Fly Fishing Trips

South Fork Flathead River Fly Fishing

This gin-clear river runs thru the heart of the Bob Marshall Wilderness for nearly it’s full length, south to north. Horses and mules transport us, our boats and gear 20 to 26 miles (depending upon which trail we take in), then float the 50 miles out over the course of 5 days.

The South Fork is home to an incredible number of Westslope Cutthroat, and the huge Bull Trout (Dolly Varden). The South Fork is one of the very few places in the lower 48 where we may legally fish for these carnivorous monsters.

When you go on a South Fork Trip, you will fly into either Missoula, Kalispell, or Great Falls, depending upon which trailhead we begin the trip from. Each trip may take a different route in, but all will end the same place, which is nearest to Kalispell.

We conduct very limited, and highly coveted South Fork trips in cooperation with Outfitter Joe Sowerby, and Permit Holder and professional Packer, Joe Muretta. There is lot’s more you need to know about a South Fork Trip, so please call today for more information!
