Swan Mountain Outfitters offers the best of fly fishing in northwest Montana. Fly fishing in Montana is world renowned; just one visit here and our guides will prove that the reputation is well deserved. Anglers from all over the world come here to fish for the Montana rainbow trout, Montana bull trout, Montana brook trout and Montana cutthroat trout that fill our lakes, rivers and streams. Over the years, we have found that different anglers want very different types of Montana fishing vacations. The unique feature of fishing with Swan Mountain Outfitters is that our guides will customize your trip, so you get the type of experience you want.
The richness of our surroundings allows us to offer Montana fly fishing trips that meet the needs and desires of all types of anglers, trips include: fish and float the Swan River day-trips or multi-day, walk and wade, fishing clinics, horseback pack and fishing trips, semi-guided or fully guided customized fishing trips, multi-day hiking and fishing with llama packers (llama trekking), and non-hatchery grown wild trout fishing in our new location at Salmon Forks Outfitters, within the interior of the Bob Marshall Wilderness.
Orvis once named the fisheries within in the Bob Marshall one of the top five in the world. It's a rare opportunity to fish native trout in their original habitat. Salmon Forks Outfitters, newest addition to Swan Mountain Outfitters, operates out of the most coveted spot within the Bob Marshall: guiding anglers to the “source” of the wild hatch for trout. Whilst many of the other Bob Marshall float trips get you close to these areas, you float away from some of the best fishing. With a Salmon Forks Outfitters trip, you camp at the headwaters of the fishery, and each day break out to a variety of areas to walk and wade. Your precious time isn’t spent setting up and breaking down camp, but rather enjoying your wilderness experience.
Home to westslope cutthroat and bull trout, the waters in and around the Salmon Forks present some of the finest fly fishing offered in the state of Montana. Because this is located 21 miles into the interior of the Bob, the fishing experience is truly a wilderness experience. Only a handful of lucky anglers access this area annually.
Additionally, many of our guests combine horseback pack trips with fishing excursions. Swan Mountain Outfitters is happy to help guests plan unique trips based on specific needs, to help plan your Montana fishing trip of a lifetime.
