Gallatin River Learn & Guided Fly Fishing

Join us for this fun half-day activity geared towards families and first time anglers with interest in learning the basics of Fly Fishing. The group lesson will take place on private river front property with a prime fishing hole on the Gallatin River and we provide all the gear and detailed instruction throughout. The Gallatin is one of the best wade fishing rivers in Montana. The area used to be the historic Karst Camp and is famous for the scenery featured in the movie, “A River Runs Through It.”

In the Learn to Fish Lesson, the guides will begin instruction on fish and fish habitat, reading water, identifying insects, selecting flies, and familiarization with fly fishing gear. The course will flow into dry-land casting practice without hooks at targets. Once the group is comfortable with the basics and understand some river safety tips, we will slip on the waders and head to the river in search of the big bite!

After your Learn to Fly Fish Lesson, continue the afternoon with a Guided Walk and Wade trip on the Gallatin for a full day of fishing fun! Stay with your guide for an additional 3 hours and really get comfortable with the rod in the water! There is no fishing from a boat allowed on the Gallatin, so your guide will be able to take you to some great holes and give pointers on how to keep improving your skills.
