Fishing Bob Marshall Wilderness
What’s The Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex?
The Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex is often overlooked in Northwest Montana. When vacationers are planning Montana adventures, names like Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park cast a shadow over this pristine mountain ecosystem. Created through the Congressional Wilderness Act of 1964, “The Bob” as people call it, is a preservation of land that is only accessible by foot, horseback, and plane, therefore its one of the quietest and most natural places in the Mountain West.
At an impressive 1.5 million acres it is the third-largest designated wilderness area. Within it is the densest population of grizzly bears in the lower 48. If you’re looking for a true Montana wilderness trip, the Bob Marshall is the place for you.
Best Fishing In the Bob Marshall Wilderness
In addition to its beauty, The Middle Fork is known for the best fishing in the Bob Marshall Wilderness. It’s fairly difficult to access, therefore it receives little fishing pressure, making it a great Montana fly fishing trip. Later in the summer (July and August), the river is teeming with thousands of native Westslope Cutthroat trout, providing anglers with excellent dry fly fishing.
The Bob Marshal Wilderness doesn’t receive many visitors. As a result, competition with other anglers is non-existent and many of our guests experience a very exclusive wilderness fishing trip. Our Bob Marshall Wilderness fly fishing trip provides guides from an Orvis endorsed outfitter, gear, and a lifetime of memories. We invite you to leave your cell phones behind and take an unforgettable fishing trip in the Bob Marshall Wilderness.
Take it from New York Times writer Chris Santella!
“Whether I cast Chernobyl ants into the riffles, Stimulators against granite walls bordering deep pools, or Elk Hair Caddis in the seams of faster runs, the fish were often ready.”
