River Choices for your 3 Guided Missoula Fishing Day Trips

*Read more about your river choices or leave the choice up to us and your guide. They track hatches and the fishing successes to make sure to get you out on the best river for the season and time you are visiting.

The Blackfoot is diverse in its reach with a mixed population of rainbows, cutthroat, browns, and Bull trout. This river is near Missoula that has become a treasured destination for anglers fishing in Missoula Montana. The scenery is unmatched and the fishing is consistent. As a note bull trout are rare and never targeted. They are merely the sign of a clean, clear, free flowing river in Western Montana.

The Clark Fork River near Missoula Montana is a river of two worlds. The Lower Clark Fork river is our home river and a native home to our biggest population of wild rainbow trout. Montana doesn’t stock any fish in our rivers and it is joy to fishing in long flats of the Clark Fork river for wild risers with small dry flies just minutes from our River Shop.

The Upper Clark is a small meandering meadow river whose trout population is over 90% brown trout. She is lightly fished with most anglers focused on the lower 20 miles before it meets the Blackfoot river near Missoula Montana. Fishing with streamers and big dries are the most effective techniques and can produce exceptional results.

The Bitterroot River is Missoula’s most dynamic watershed with over 90 miles of floatable water. The boat ramp options begin near Missoula Montana and stretch all the way to 25 miles south of Darby. In the upper river the main species is the West Slope Cutthroat trout. They are plentiful and rise easily to dry flies. If you decide to enjoy some Missoula fly fishing, then the Bitterroot river will be at the top of the list.

For the last 44 years Adventure Missoula has provided professional Missoula fly fishing guide services on the Bitterroot River, Blackfoot River, and majestic Clark Fork. We have created a reputation as family friendly, a history of hiring guiding teachers who consistently produce a high quality on the water experience for our guests. We often get best lunch on the river. We relish the opportunity to teach a new angler and are willing to offer new advice for the advanced. We are personal, local, and friendly. Owned by two school teachers, Adventure Missoula hires hard working Missoula fly fishing guides to service your trips. All you have to do is show up and fish! Enjoy a three day adventure for your guided Missoula fishing trips.

*Missoula Montana has three rivers that require a permit to be able to provide fly fishing guide services. Not all outfitters have these permits, but we have a full suite of whitewater fishing, fly fishing, and spin fishing staff for our area to provide maximum access to our guests and families. We believe our guests should be able to fish all the water that Missoula has to offer and so we offer this trifecta adventure to share our world with you.
