Montana Fly Fishing

Linehan Outfitting Co.

Montana fly fishing inherently means different things to different people and the destinations are many and varied. Here in Kootenai Country we can honestly offer a different experience. This northwest corner of the state is far less traveled and is more like the Pacific Northwest ecosystem than traditional big sky country. It’s green, lush, mountainous, and we’re not exaggerating when we say less crowded. Seriously, we only see a couple other drift boats on the water each day. If we’re fishing remote smaller rivers, we don’t see anyone…for days.

The Linehan Outfitting Company staff of Montana fly fishing guides are some of the best in the state. We don’t see ourselves as a means to an end. We want you to learn, to experience facets of the sport you have never encountered before, and to come away from fishing with us with that “wow!” sense of accomplishment. It’s wrong to guarantee lots of fish or lots of big fish every day. Mother Nature does what she wants. Period. But we can guarantee our knowledge and can guarantee that you will be a better angler after you fish with us. And that’s what we believe you’re paying for anyway.

So continue to poke around the site, read carefully, and know we’d love to hear from you.
