All our trips run on the North and Middle Forks of the Flathead River along the border of Glacier National Park.

Best way to start our Vacation

Best way to start our Glacier National Park Vacation Our guide Ben was awesome. He was funny and informative. This was the perfect start to our trip and I’d highly recommend it.

My husband had prepaid for the trip, but was ill that morning. I figured we would have to take it as a loss, but they worked with us to make sure he still had the experience of a lifetime. They went above & beyond for our family. A shout out to Jamie for being an amazing guide!

Great first fly fishing experience!

Wow! We couldn’t believe we learned so much in 4 hours! Elijah was such a great teacher, he knew exactly how to talk so my kids would learn. My kids loved catching fish!

Tons of Cutties

I use an outdoor wheelchair and was able to get to the float boat. Chris put me on so many fish we lost count. The water is crystal clear, eagles, and the shear beauty of the scenery made this one of my top fishing trips. Oh, and tons of fish! Thanks again Chris FISH ON!
