For the angler looking for a shorter day our half day offers a taste of fishing from a drift boat - giving the angler on a time constraint the opportunity to fish the bigger Western Rivers. Half day floats are done under a stricter time and travel constraint, we will not travel more than 80 miles round trip and trips are limited to 4 hours on the water, no exceptions. Due to the time and travel constraints, half day float trips are more limited as to where your guide can float for the day. Trips can be taken at any time during the day, so if you'd like to get on the water for an evening hatch, your guide will be more than happy to start the day later with you and fish into the evening. Food is not offered on half day trips so we encourage clients to bring along their own snacks on half day trips.
Half day float trips available on the Lower Madison and Yellowstone Rivers only.
Generally our half 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 4 hours. Transportation to and from the river can range between 25 minutes and 40 minutes depending on the river, with the average drive time being around half an hour. A half day float is usually around 3.5-4 hours on the water. The boats used are hard side drift boats with comfy seats or leg locks so you can stand and cast. These boats are designed to make your day on the water as comfortable and relaxing as possible.
