Glacier Angler, MT

Montana is legendary for its fly fishing. Experience it for yourself in the waters that surround Glacier National Park. We offer daily and multi-day guided trips on the beautiful North and Middle Forks of the Flathead River, and multi-day trips into the Great Bear Wilderness to fish the acclaimed Upper Middle Fork. This is prime habitat for eager native westslope cutthroat trout. Bring your own gear or let us supply everything you need. A Montana fishing license is required for all fishing trips with the exception of private pond fishing. Purchase your license at Glacier Outdoor Center or purchase online at Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks. If you're a beginner, we provide instruction on private ponds where no fishing license is required. One lesson and you may be hooked on fly fishing for life (if you're lucky).

"I was fortunate enough to meet Darwon and his team in 2010 for my very first fly fishing trip, a 4 day great bear wilderness float trip. Before I go on I want to say I have become a fly fishing junkie!! I have been back every year sense and will be back again this year for more than fishing. My 2013 trip was the best trip of all as I took both my boys for a 5 day float down the upper middle fork as a graduation present for my oldest son Cody. This trip was absolutely amazing to spend time with my sons and Darwon team. As a result of this amazing trip my son Cody has applied for a summer job at Glacier Anglers and will be working for Darwon this summer (2014). Not only were the boys absolutely stunned by the hospitality of the Glacier Anglers, but additionally awestruck by the sheer wonder of the nature around us. The guides are so knowledgeable of the river and put us on so many fish even the beginners we are caught an overabundance of cutthroat trout every day. The guides were so helpful to both my boys as they beginners and want to thank them for this. The trip will be an unforgettable trip for them but it doesn’t end there as the stories around the camp fire at night are still talked about today.
Thanks Glacier Anglers and I would recommend this trip to anyone regardless if you are a beginner or expert.

"For my high school graduation my dad bought me a week long trip to the upper middle fork of the Flathead River. I went with my dad, brother, uncle, and cousins. It was the BEST vacation I have ever had. Easily the best trout fishing I have ever encountered. The guides are great and very knowledgable. The guides will go to any lengths to help you with anything on the trip. The scenery is second to none. The wildlife is abundant and this area is very remote. We only saw one other person the whole trip and he was a park ranger. The food were excellent and there was a wide variety of it. Overall the experience was excellent, 5 stars."

Additional Thoughts:Glacier Anglers also gave me a great deal on an Orvis Fly Rod package
"I took Glacier Raft Company's Great Bear Wilderness Float Trip in July, 2013. It was the Trip of a Lifetime! The river is very technical, so I wouldn't consider taking it on with my floating equipment. The fishing was outstanding - incredible numbers of large cutthroat trout on dry flies. The guiding was excellent - each of the guides would put you over big fish with a good chance of hooking up. The service was incredible - from advice on what to take, packing the gear in, making sure the anglers had everything they needed, excellent fishing advice and pointers, camp set up, absolutely incredible food and plenty of it. The guides were excellent and extremely knowledgeable about the river, the fish, and the surrounding environment and Wilderness. Great Trip!"

"I am an avid fly fisherman, and have had the pleasure of experiencing most of the best wilderness river trout fly/flyfishing adventures around the western US. This trip is by far the best trout fishing experience that exists in the lower 48. Due to the inaccessibility of the canyon to anyone not affiliated with Glacier Raft Company, there is so little fishing pressure, and are so many cutthroat trout, bugs on the surface just dont stand a chance, dry flies get eaten. Period. Lots of big, beautiful, healthy cutthroat trout that fight hard.
The staff and guides at Glacier Raft Company are unsurpassed, from the information and reservation process, to the capable hands you and your gear are in from the mule packing of the gear and the walk/hike to the river, and the entire river trout fishing experience, the quality of the guiding is the best I have experienced yet.
I will be back every summer, to do this trip again and again. Thank you Glacier
