Hi Folks

After a hiatus of a few years we are heading back to Missoula, Montana this July with a bargain trip on the Bitterroot and Clark Fork rivers during prime time! All my friends know that I consider the Bitterroot and Clark Fork rivers, along with the Missouri, among the best dry fly rivers in the world for big, wild, sipping browns and rainbows on the dry fly!

The rivers, accommodations, and guides are the best and the price is low at $1895. My space is limited to 7 anglers plus myself so call me now for more details on this low cost/high quality trip.

Read on for all the details:

July 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 2011 Trip to Missoula, Montana on the Bitterroot/Clark Fork Rivers

Clark Fork and Bitterroot: We will stay in the great town of Missoula Montana, at the luxurious Double Tree Hotel right on the Clark Fork for four nights while we float the Clark Fork and the Bitterroot!

I can't be more emphatic about the quality of the 'rising trout/dry fly sight fishing' on the lower Clark Fork (and the Bitterroot). Big wild rainbows and browns sip mayflies and caddis and zip into your backing. They call these rainbows "firecrackers" and they are considered the "hottest" fish in the West!  Click here for more information and photos!

In the past we've hooked 30 plus fish per boat, per day - these sipping fish are 17 to 20+ inches with some browns going to 23 inches. I've made special arrangements so that our floats start 9:00 A.M., and go till about 9:30 PM, 12+ hour floats are a rarity in the West. They include our mid afternoon rustic streamside alfresco dining right on the river with grilled elk, beef or chicken with salads, veggies and breads. A bottle of Merlot, Cabernet or Chardonnay (your choice), topped off with a nice cigar, if you wish - it always tastes better on the river.

After a well deserved streamside rest on the bank, if you like, then it's back to sipping trout until dark. It is not a problem for those who want to get back earlier in the evening, just tell your guide and he will take you back. The Bitterroot, Clark Fork (along with the Missouri River) are simply the best dry fly 'sight fishing' venues in the world today! And this is the best part - aside from our own party, you will rarely see another boat or wading angler on the Clark Fork the whole day, truly amazing!

The price for the trip is $1895 and includes 4 nights accommodations at the Double Tree Hotel in large deluxe balcony rooms with queen beds overlooking the Clark Fork. Three 12 hour guided float trips down the Bitterroot/Clark Fork rivers, dinner on arrival day and 4 luxurious breakfasts at the hotel's "acclaimed Finn and Porter Restaurant overlooking the river, lunch and alfresco dinner on the river including soft drinks, wine, and beer during the float trips, round trip transportation from Missoula airport to and from the hotel.

Price is based on 2 persons per room (large deluxe rooms with two queens), and 2 persons per guide. Everything is included except airfare, tips for guides and additional meals, drinks and incidentals at the hotel. Extra days accommodations and guided floats are available at $450 per day double occupancy.
