Smith River Float, Montana

The Smith River is a freestone River in Central Montana to the west of Helena. The trip is earmarked for May 27th to May 31st of 2023. If least than 8 members, the cost will be $4950 per person and $4350 if there are 8 members. We need to reserve spots sooner than later so a deposit of $600 will be require at sign-up.

The river corridor is largely untouched by major developments and offers magnificent views of scenery and wildlife, towering limestone cliffs and excellent fishing for brown and rainbow trout. For many, this is the fishing trip you have been waiting for.

The trip features 4 nights glamping on the riverbank and 5 days of fishing (largely drift boat). Meals, drinks, snacks are prepared by a chef. Tents and cots are included (BYO sleeping bag) are included. You will need to bring yourself and maybe a favorite fly rod or two.

There should be ample opportunities for dry fly fishing and frequent nymphing. The end of May would likely focus on Caddis Fly and Salmon Fly hatches.
