Wilderness Adventures

For a real adventure, we can take you into the Bob Marshall Wilderness, via horseback and raft, to fish the pristine South Fork of the Flathead River. The "Bob", as this vast wilderness area is known, is adjacent to Glacier National Park, forming a huge backcountry area.

We'll join up with wilderness outfitter John Way for this ride in - float out adventure! The west slope cutthroats are as large and numerous as anywhere in the western U.S. Some scenic mountain lakes and streams can be fished on this trip as well. This 5 - 7 day expedition is one you'll long remember! Prime time is late July through August. The fish are easy and abundant. It's a throw back to the "good old days"!

Reservations need to be made well in advance.

What to Expect: After flying into Helena, Great Falls or Kalispell, we will pick you up and get your fishing licenses and any last minute items. We will then travel 1-2 hours to lodging and dinner. Please arrange an early flight, as we need to get all gear to the horse packers by 6:00 p.m. the night prior to our first day into "The Bob".

The first day of your trip begins at 6:00 a.m. with a hearty breakfast followed by a drive to the trail head where we will meet up with our horses. This day will be the longest, riding horseback for 7+ hours. The scenery is breathtaking, and offers the possibility of seeing an abundance of wildlife including black bears, an a occasional grizzly bear, elk, deer, mountain goats, wolves, eagles, osprey, hawks, plus many more. Once at the first day's camp, you will have time to hike, wash in a near by stream, possibly fish, or just relax while we set up camp and prepare your dinner.

Day two is generally a shorter horseback ride, ending at our launch point on the South Fork of the Flathead in early afternoon. You will have the remainder of the day to wade fish, while we set up camp and prepare another feast in the Rockies.

Each day thereafter will begin with a hearty breakfast. We are usually on the water around 9:00 a.m. and fish five to fifteen miles per day. 50+ fish days are not uncommon, as West Slope Cutthroats averaging 12-22 inches are easily taken on large attractor patterns. Bull trout up to 15 lbs. are often seen, but are currently in a "no catch" status. You can expect camp to be set up when you pull ashore and a gourmet meal in the works.

The river journey will end at Meadow Creek Gorge in early afternoon. From here you may choose to walk or ride out via horseback approximately one hour to the pick up point. Once at the pick up point you have the opportunity to be driven or flown out. We can arrange a charter flight to pick you up and add an adventurous twist to your Bob Marshall experience. The flight will be about 20 min. to Kalispell. This charter service also offers scenic flights over the Great Bear Wilderness, Bob Marshall Wilderness, and/or Glacier National Park. Whatever you decide we are sure you will have an experience of a lifetime.
