Frequently Asked Questions

After spending the time, energy and money to come to Montana to fish for trout, you shouldn’t gamble on the quality of the guide you’ll be fishing with. If you spend some time inquiring locally or on a national level, the one name that you’ll hear over and over again for guiding excellence in the Missoula area is The Kingfisher. The more you check, the better we’ll look!

For most of the fishing season, guided trips meet at the shop at 9 a.m. and the client cars are left at the shop or motel. The length of fishing day is at the client’s discretion but usually lasts between eight to ten hours on a full day float. The river fished and the meet times are purely a matter of fishing conditions and are generally flexible. Guides hire shuttle drivers who will move the guide’s rig so that there is no waiting around at the end of the day. When you reach the take out, the vehicle will be waiting for you.
