Trout don’t live in ugly places!

Madison River

Montana is full of beautiful rivers, creeks and lakes that hold healthy populations of wild Brown, Rainbow and Cutthroat Trout.

McKinnie Fly Fishing Outfitters are lucky to have access to many locations where you can catch dozens of fish and soak in the amazing scenery that Montana is known for.

Missouri River


The Mighty Mo is known for prolific hatches and for its stunning numbers of trophy Rainbow and Brown Trout.  Montana Fish Wildlife & Parks estimate that some stretches of the Missouri hold over 6,000 rainbow trout greater than ten inches long per mile.

Madison River

The world famous Madison River, known as the 50 mile riffle, is a Blue Ribbon trout stream with breath-taking views and scenery.

Rock Creek

Rock Creek Brown

Rock Creek is a hidden gem amongst the other “big name” rivers around Montana.  The creek offers a healthy population of Brown and Cutthroat Trout and offers great opportunities for wade fishing.

Bitterroot River


The views from the Bitterroot are worth the float alone; the Sapphire and Bitterroot mountain ranges frame this scenic valley.  The root also see some epic early spring hatches which make it a famous fishery.

Clark Fork


For most anglers the Clark Fork is somewhat off the beaten path.  For what the Clark Fork lacks in numbers it makes up for in solitude, scenery and still plenty of chances at nice trout.

Yellowstone River

The longest un-dammed river in the lower 48, the Yellowstone flows through diverse country and provides plenty of opportunity for trophy trout.  The stone is also a great destination for multi-day floats.
