The Bob Marshall has hundreds of miles of rivers and streams, but the South Fork of the Flathead River, one of Montana’s best kept secrets, is a fly fishing paradise with mile after mile of exciting, unforgettable water.
You can expect to catch between 20 to 40 Native West Slope Cutthroat a day, anywhere between 12 and 18 inches, with an occasional lunker over 20 inches.
The South Fork of the Flathead River is also one of the few areas in the lower 48 states that allows you to target and catch the Native Bull Trout. Bull Trout in excess of 28” can be caught and are often times considered a “bucket list” fish for many fly fishermen. Many of the drainages that empty into the South Fork of the Flathead River get very little pressure year after year and give our guests the opportunity to fish in a true wilderness setting.
Another option we have is to come stay in our base camp as many days as you please between August 21st and August 30th. You can either walk out of camp and fish the nearby stream and lake or we can travel by horseback for approx 7 miles to the South Fork of the Flathead.
