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 (industry standard is 20%), and a 4% 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.
