Fly fishing vacation packages in the
Last Best Place
If you plan to visit and fish in Missoula, staying at the Dry Fly Apartments and fishing with the Grizzly Hackle Fly Shop, located below the apartments, is a great choice.
Get out of bed, walk downstairs, and meet your Missoula fly fishing guides. When you book one of our fly fishing vacation packages, we'll take you to one of the three rivers that flow through the Missoula valley. The Clark Fork, the Bitterroot, or the Blackfoot. The Clark Fork flows just behind the Dry Fly Apartment’s back doors and through Missoula’s downtown. Fishing on the Clark Fork is consistent and scenic.
The Bitterroot flows north from the Bitterroot Valley and toward Missoula. The Bitterroot River lays in a wide valley between the Sapphire and Bitterroot mountain ranges and is home to big brown trout.
The Blackfoot, notable from its ties to Norman Maclean’s A River Runs Through It, flows south toward Missoula, has a large scenic corridor, lots of different accesses, and a beautiful canyon stretch.
Stay four nights and three days to experience all three distinct fisheries or contact us to design your own package.
I would enthusiastically recommend Grizzly Hackle for all fishing needs.
We are from D.C. & this was our first time to Montana and our first time fly fishing. My husband, two kids, and I visited the upper Clark Fork after a day of fishing with Kelly H. & Dave H., two of the BEST Grizzly Hackle guides. This was our second day of fishing this week; Kelly took us on the Blackfoot River on our first day and we had to come back for more. The guides made the day as convenient, relaxing, and FUN as possible. They picked us up from our home, drove us out the river, and were stocked with cold beverages and delicious lunch. The fishing was great and we appreciated Dave's expertise dry fly fishing - he put us on fish consistently throughout the day! Kelly took the time to pull over & take professional photos of us as a family with our beautiful trout. She even hung out for an hour at the end while our kids swam in the river and jumped off the rocks. Can't say enough about our guides or the rest of the staff at the Grizzly Hackle. We walked out with hatsand t-shirts for the entire family. All the staff was very accommodating, laid back and helpful. Thank you Grizzly Hackle for making our family vacation to Montana so memorable!
