Our most popular trips since we started rowing boats down rivers in 1978, full day float trips are the best way for anglers to fish many of Montana's big Western Rivers. In addition to a fantastic way to scout for fish and soak in the scenic beauty that Montana has to offer, full day float trips are a great way for novice anglers to learn casting, mending, reading water, and landing fish in moving water. Float trips give your guides the ability to cover larger stretches of water in case the fishing isn't productive in one area. Truly a great way to experience Montana, our full day trips are available on the finest and most productive rivers in the state.
Full day float trips are available on the Upper & Lower Madison, Yellowstone, Gallatin, Boulder, Upper Missouri and Jefferson Rivers.
Float trips on the Big Hole, Bighorn, Stillwater and Missouri are available as well - see information on fees and rates above.
Generally our full day floats begin around 7:30 am dependent on conditions. Later in the summer, early trip times can be more productive. During the colder months, we try to get on the water during the most productive times of day. Transportation to and from the river can range between 25 minutes and 2 hours depending on the river, with the average drive time being around half an hour. A full day float or wade has an average of a 6-8 hour duration. The boats used are hard side drift boats with comfy seats that are nice to fish from or leg locks for those who prefer to fish while standing. These boats are designed to make your day on the water as comfortable and relaxing as possible.
