The Missouri River below Holter Dam is an unbelievable Trout fishery. Broken down into three distinct sections; The Upper River, Canyon, and Prairie. Each of these distinct sections hosts astonishing numbers of both Rainbow and Brown Trout. Without a doubt the Missouri is the best day in and day out Trout Stream around. If there were a better one, I would probably be guiding on it. The size of Trout, variety of hatches, size of the river, and many more attributes make it a must try for any angler. With rising fish from the middle of April until November, there really aren't too many factors that can make the Missouri unproductive. The Missouri River has excellent Mayfly, Caddis, and Midge hatches. The banks provide excellent habitat for terrestrial insects. I tend to focus on targeting trout using a variety of methods, and like to show my anglers something new. Whether casting hoppers along a bank, wading with nymphs, stripping streamers, or targeting all of our rising Trout. While the Missouri River is an Trout excellent stream, fishing with the local experienced guides definitely ups the anglers odds of building memories that last forever.
Upstream from where I guide on the Missouri is the Land Of The Giants Tailwater. Below Hauser Dam, this fishery must be accessed via motorboat with a certified Captain. I work with the finest Guides who guide on this short piece of water. The Rainbows and Browns are gigantic, and the scenery is epic.
I maintain the necessary permits to float and guide on the Big Blackfoot River. The Blackfoot is a classic Western Freestone, and different from the Missouri. A beautiful river, with Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Bull Trout, and Cutthroat Trout. A good day on the Blackfoot will have anglers raving for years.
I posses the necessary permits to guide on the Madison. While I will typically hand off those days to another experienced guide. If you are interested in Fishing the Madison along with the Missouri, I can certainly help you plan a great trip.
It's true, we also guide other places. Many of them have no place being advertised on the internet. We work with government agencies and landowners to secure access. These can be either floated in a drift boat, raft, or we can wade them.
