Fly Fishing

Big Sky and Yellowstone are the heart of fly fishing country with their beautiful pristine waters. Cast your line in the Gallatin River and Upper or Lower Madison River, or head to the vast array of spring creeks to fish and float amidst breathtaking scenery. Set amidst the solitude of the mountains in high alpine lakes, rivers, and streams are blue-ribbon trout and an angler’s dream that promises a magical experience.


Since 1984, Gallatin River Guides has been a year-round source for fly fishing the Gallatin, Madison, Yellowstone, and Paradise Valley Spring Creeks. We fish a ton. From beginner to expert, from the Madison River to a technical spring creek, we are your source for all things fishy under Montana`s Big Sky.

n April 2014 Grizzly Outfitters expanded our business by building a dedicated fly shop on the Gallatin River just 3 miles from our main store; designed to further satisfy our customers` cravings for all that Montana has to offer. Over the past 20 years Grizzly Outfitters has been Big Sky`s top alpine skiing and mountain biking recreational store; with a dependable group of talented customer service professionals dedicated to our customers needs which is second-to-none. With this reputation to uphold we have carefully gathered the most experienced guides and knowledgeable shop staff in the region to assist visiting anglers, whether they are novice or old hands at the sport. We`re here to help pick what flies and equipment to use and where to go on the many world-class rivers and Blue Ribbon streams our fine state has to offer. The new river shop is also catered to those wanting to enjoy and learn the art of fly fishing without breaking the bank. Visit other shops and you`ll quickly note the sport has reached a point where it`s getting too expensive and not as inclusive as it should be; because of this we carry a wide assortment of affordable gear designed with the budget conscious angler in mind; while still carefully selecting those brands where quality and dependability are staples. We also offer quality camping and hiking gear for those wanting to break up their fly fishing trip hitting the thousands of miles of public trails which are right outside our door.
