South West Montana has some of the most famous spring creeks and match-the-hatch dry fly fishing in the world. Wading and sight fishing to 12”-20” rainbows, browns and cutthroats in gin clear water offers a challenge like no other. Within 45 minutes of Bozeman, you can complete or add to your bucket list of technical fisheries by heading out to the area’s most well-known spring creeks. *Rod Fees Apply

Still water fishing can produce some of the largest trout you’ll ever catch. Though most of us love the free-flowing water of our rivers and creeks, Montana has a number of amazing lakes that hold some HUGE fish and offer different types of angling.


From dry flies to streamers, the lakes of SW Montana can be a great option whether it’s a privately owned water or one of the states many larger public lakes.

Often overlooked when dreaming about all of Montana’s fishing options are it’s smaller rivers and streams. The “Last Best Place” is full of smaller waters loaded with colorful, hungry and feisty trout. Though the size of these fish are on average smaller than the rivers, it’s not uncommon to find that big boy hiding under a cut bank.


For those who love to throw dries with smaller rods and who are looking to catch a good number of fish, give some thought to spending a day on one of our many smaller streams.


  • East Gallatin River

  • Boulder River

  • Stillwater River

  • Little Blackfoot River

  • Marias River

  • *Others

Love to chase Bone Fish or Red’s on the flats? Well, MLBO can offer a similar experience right here in Montana. Carp fishing has become a new found fad for fly-fisherman across the west and MLBO’s guides have been doing it their whole lives.

Looking for a way to “hook up” when it seems every body of water is frozen? Want something different to add into that family ski trip? Well why not try ice fishing?!?


It may seem crazy to some, but for those of us growing up in Montana, it’s just another way to enjoy the amazing fishing that this state has to offer during the winter months.


From perch and walleye, to giant ling (pictured here) and HUGE trout, there are tons of fish to be caught. So come try something different and see what all that Fireball fuss is about!
