Scenic Float Trips
For our scenic floats, our rafts feature a super comfortable, padded, high backed bench seat in the front and a single, molded, high backed jump seat (the princess seat) in the back. We can comfortably take four adults. We are always more than willing to customize the trip to your particular needs. Your guide will listen to what you want to do and then suggest departure times and places.
For instance if wildlife is important your guide may suggest an early departure somewhere on the west fork, while a float with scenic views of the Bitterroot Valley may be better in a more open stretch of river when the sun is higher in the sky.
Our full day Scenic trips generally float ten to twelve miles of river. Depending on which stretch and how fast the water is flowing these trips generally take six to eight hours. Full day trips include a picnic style riverside lunch of venison cold cuts, chips, fruit and veggies.
Fishing Float Trips
Experienced anglers from all over the world travel to Montana’s Bitterroot valley to experience fly fishing for wild trout on this 84 mile stretch of blue ribbon river. With it’s legendary hatches of Salmon, Caddis and May Flies, the Bitterroot starts fishing well in March and continues to produce trophy size fish in record numbers through November.
All of our guided fishing trips are flexible and customized for our clients. A trip with first time fly-fishermen is very different than a trip with anglers that have 20 years of fly-fishing experience. Our full day & half day trips with experienced anglers are all about fishing and having fun on the river. We fish from the raft and, depending on our clients wishes, use the raft as access to back channels and braids that are wade fished.
With our starters trip most of the fishing and instruction are done from the shore. We use the raft to move from spot to spot and each stop includes as little or as much instruction as you would like and the ability to practice your new found skills on fish.
Our number one goal is to laugh and have a fun day on the river with you, if we can have you casting a fly rod and catching fish by the end of the day that’s good, if we can get you addicted to fly-fishing by the end of the trip that’s even better.
