Fly Fishing
Guided Trips


Trout Stalkers offers many options for guided Montana fly fishing trips. The Madison River is our home stream, so we specialize in guiding on this great river. We cater to anglers of all skill levels, from beginner fly fishermen looking to catch that first trout on a fly, to the seasoned angler seeking a veteran Montana fishing guide who knows these waters like the back of their hand. Our experienced guides will work hard to help you have a first-rate Montana fly fishing experience.

Full-Day - Typically a 7-10 hour day departing between 6 and 10 in the morning. We will provide beverages, lunch, flies, guidance, instruction, and rods & reels if needed. This is best way to get the full experience of fly fishing from a drift boat.

Half-Day - Typically 3-5 hours either in the morning, afternoon, or evening. Whatever suits you best. We bring flies, snacks and beverages.
