Offering the ability to cover expansive stretches of water in an outing, driftboat fishing is the most popular means of exploring southwestern Montana’s larger rivers. Suited to both novice and experts, a day of working the water from the comfort of a McKenzie style drift boat exposes anglers to a wide variety of water conditions and trout fishing scenarios while immersing them in the splendor of Montana’s wildlife and scenery. Whether casting from the moving boat or stopping to wade prime riffles or holes, float fishing provides options and access to spots that can’t be reached on foot.

Destinations include the Yellowstone, Upper and Lower Madison, Gallatin, Jefferson, Missouri, Boulder, Stillwater and Bighorn Rivers.
