You’ll be accompanied by one of the most experienced, knowledgeable and personable guide staffs in Montana while you fish these breathtaking rivers and streams for beautiful browns and rainbows in a range of sizes.

Accomodations: You’ll enjoy clean, comfortable, spacious rooms with two queen sized beds, private bathroom and porches with magnificent views. Laundry service, a large outdoor hot tub, and an exercise room are also available. Meals are fresh and well-balanced, often featuring herbs and produce from local gardens.

Healing Waters Float

Fishing Program:

In the morning your guide will pick you up at your front door, you’ll discuss the day’s game plan and head out to your elected river or stream. If you’re not sure where you want to fish, your guide will of course have recommendations. On the water your guide will provide refreshments, bottled water, a hearty lunch and snacks. You’ll be returned to the lodge in time for appetizers and refreshments at 7PM and dinner at 7:30PM.
