Flathead Fish Finders hosts guided  fly fishing drift boat charters to anglers of all levels of experience from complete beginners to experts. Fishing the Flathead River in Northwestern Montana is a great fishing experience whether fishing fly gear or light tackle and is a wonderful way to experience the scenery of Flathead Valley!

On our drift boat fishing trips, our guides take care of everything (an experienced guide, all gear and soft drinks) – so you and your group can relax and focus on the fishing!

Montana’s Flathead River is a spectacular, freestone river – draining a sizeable portion of Northwest Montana. The waters of the Flathead River flow swiftly through some of the most beautiful scenery Montana has to offer.

We guide our fly fishing float trips through the upper Flathead Valley, home to Whitefish, Columbia Falls, and Kalispell. Here, the River is wide and quite deep in many sections making fly fishing from a drift boat your best bet.

Being fed by mountain lakes and snowmelt, the Flathead River is usually quite cold even well into the summer keeping our wild cutthroat trout hungry for dry flies through the warmest time of year!

Your departing location will be determined by your guide & communicated to you prior to your trip date

This experience was 5 stars from stem to stern. My initial convo with the office manager, Rebecca, was responsive, professional and so helpful. Captain Glenn’s luxury fishing pontoon was immaculate, well stocked and had high tech fishing equipment. Captain Glenn was the icing on the already perfect cake – extremely knowledgeable, friendly and so very helpful to newbie fishers. This was an amazing day that created memories that will bring a smile to my face even when I’m an old woman….

We took a half-day trip with Captain Mike last week and had a GREAT experience. We caught a lot of fish…we caught BIG fish, but most important to us, we had a great time as a group. Captain Mike has a boat perfectly (and personally) designed to be a lethal fish finding/catching machine. Captain Mike got us on – and kept us on – fish for our entire trip (he knows his stuff). He has extensive knowledge of the area and lake as well, so if you’re not from around here, you might find that very interesting. Mike’s passion for catching fish is contagious and set the tone for the trip 10 minutes from the dock. Overall, I can’t recommend Captain Mike enough! Go with Captain Mike and have fun!!…
