Our Guided Fishing Rates

Our goal is for you to go fishing and have fun - not to spend time reading the fine print. Our guided fly fishing trip rates are All-Inclusive: personalized guide service, wading and fishing gear, tackle, flies, non-alcoholic beverages, and lunch on full days.

Not included are a fishing license or permit, guide gratuity, and a 3% Big Sky community resort tax. If you are unsure of a reasonable gratuity for your guide, please inquire. Our guides are professional Montana fly fishing guides - they are dedicated to ensuring your trip exceeds all expectations.

Gallatin River Guides has been providing fishing services in Montana for thirty-plus years. So we've been there-and-done-that. If you have any questions about your Montana or Big Sky-area fishing trip or trip planning, send us an email or call us 406-995-2290.

Deposit & Cancellation Policy

Making a Reservation

Advanced reservations are strongly suggested, as our core group of fly fishing guides is booked well in advance. As soon as you know your fly fishing trip dates we encourage you to make a reservation so you can have first choice of guides, locations and lodging. At the time of your reservation please let GRG know of any health concerns or dietary restrictions we should be aware of for your comfort and safety.


Deposit and Final Payment

Gallatin River Guides requires a 50% deposit when booking a trip. Customer balance is due at the culmination of the trip. For trips booked within 30 days and up to the day of the trip, a 50% deposit is required. Final balance is due at the end of the trip.

Receipt of a deposit constitutes your agreement to our payment, deposit and cancellation terms.


Cancellation and Refund Policy

Your deposit will be refunded with 30 days or more notice of cancellation. Cancellations within 30 days of your trip date, including bookings made within 30 days and up to the day of the trip, your deposit will be forfeited if we cannot rebook the guide for your date(s). If we can rebook the guide, your deposit will be refunded minus a $50 processing fee. We understand unforseen circumstances can lead to canceled trips, and we reserve the right to make refund decisions on a case by case basis. Trips cancelled by the guide or mutual guide/client decision due to weather, state or federal closures, or other uncontrollable circumstances will have the entire deposit refunded. No-shows will result in full-payment to your card.
