Montana - The Big Sky

The Bob Marshall Wilderness

The South Fork of the Flathead

Pure – that sums up your experience on the South Fork of the Flathead. Pure fishing bliss - one of the largest populations of Westslope Cutthroat Trout in America and home to the largest stronghold of Bull Trout in the lower 48. The pristine conditions within the Bob Marshall are pure joy to behold - seven days in the world’s first wilderness has a way of de-bugging the soul and re-zeroing the scale like nothing else. The trout beckon, but it is the wilderness that enhances you, reminds you of the pure joy of nature. Join us for an unforgettable fly fishing float trip that is pure Montana at its finest.
