Fly Fishing

High alpine lakes, blue-ribbon trout streams, and rivers of an angler's dreams promise a magical fly fishing or lake fishing experience amidst the solitude of the mountains. The beautiful pristine waters of Big Sky and Yellowstone make this the heart of fly fishing country. Wade through the Gallatin River and Upper or Lower Madison River or head to the many cool spring creeks to fish and float amidst spectacular scenery.

Grizzly Outfitters

Grizzly Outfitters

In April 2014 Grizzly Outfitters expanded our business by building a dedicated fly shop on the Gallatin River just 3 miles from our main store; designed to further satisfy our customers` cravings for all that Montana has to offer.

Over the past 20 years Grizzly Outfitters has been Big Sky`s top alpine skiing and mountain biking recreational store; with a dependable group of talented customer service professionals dedicated to our customers needs which is second-to-none. With this reputation to uphold we have carefully gathered the most experienced guides and knowledgeable shop staff in the region to assist visiting anglers, whether they are novice or old hands at the sport. We`re here to help pick what flies and equipment to use and where to go on the many world-class rivers and Blue Ribbon streams our fine state has to offer.

The new river shop is also catered to those wanting to enjoy and learn the art of fly fishing without breaking the bank. Visit other shops and you`ll quickly note the sport has reached a point where it`s getting too expensive and not as inclusive as it should be; because of this we carry a wide assortment of affordable gear designed with the budget conscious angler in mind; while still carefully selecting those brands where quality and dependability are staples. We also offer quality camping and hiking gear for those wanting to break up their fly fishing trip hitting the thousands of miles of public trails which are right outside our door.

So take a look around our new website and see what else we have to offer. Then book directly online or pick up the phone and give us a jingle; we`ll be happy to help you make your next trip to Montana one you`ll never forget!

Wild Trout Fly Fishing Outfitters

Wild Trout Fly Fishing Outfitters

Established in 1988, Wild Trout Outfitters has its fly shop set amongst breathtaking Gallatin river and mountain scenery in the resort community of Big Sky Montana. Our expert staff is supported by a fully-stocked fly shop featuring the best flies from Umpqua, Montana Fly Company and Yellowstone Fly Goods. Accessories from Sage, Simms, Rio, Loon Outdoors, Fish Pond, Temple Fork Outfitters and Mystic Rod company.

Owner of Wild Trout Outfitters (License #614), JD Bingman has lived in Big Sky since 1973 (starting at age 9) fly fishing the Gallatin and eventually all the surrounding water in Montana, Idaho and Yellowstone Park. In 1984 J.D. began his professional Guiding career on the blue-ribbon waters of S.W. Montana. "Taking Visitors on guided fishing trips was something I knew I could do for the rest of my life." Guiding fishing trips is as natural to him as teaching people to relax and enjoy themselves while they fly fish and the same goes for his fly fishing guides. With many years of guiding/fishing experience and locally crafted fly fishing patterns, top of the line equipment and a professional and seasoned guide staff make this possible. Inherently, guiding is much more than just catching fish. A guide is a person who takes an individual`s raw ability and molds it into skill. We want you to feel confident in our staff`s understanding of what it truly means to make this experience as comfortable, safe, and memorable as possible. Spending a day on the river with one of our guides is a great experience. Our guides set the standard for excellence, sharing with you the most productive wild trout fishing in the world. The one thing we all have in common at Wild Trout Outfitters is our passion for the sport.

Wild Trout Outfitters also offers guided fly fishing trips to a multitude of public and private water destinations in Southwest Montana and Yellowstone National Park. The amount of permits that we hold, and the variety of water they represent, allows our guide staff to put you on the hot spot, no matter what time of year. When you come fly fishing with us, we will strive to meet and exceed your expectations with uncompromising customer service.

We offer unforgettable BIG SKY COUNTRY Fly Fishing Trips, Vacations, and Adventures. Our fly fishing clients experience the best fly fishing Montana and Yellowstone Park has to offer. If spending your day floating past majestic mountains, casting to rising trout, watching bald eagles soar overhead and some remarkable scenery and wildlife found in the Greater Yellowstone area all sound good to you, one call to Wild Trout Outfitters can make it all happen. Whether you are a novice or expert angler, our fly fishing guides can personally customize a guided trip to create an unforgettable fly fishing experience that brings everyone home safely with fish stories to last a lifetime.
