Based out of West Yellowstone, MT, we are a full service fly shop and outfitter, specializing in guiding and teaching anglers of all ages and skill levels.  We offer guided fly fishing throughout the region on the legendary waters of Montana’s Madison River, Yellowstone National Park, the Missouri River to the North, and we are the only fly shop in West Yellowstone that has an outfitting license on the Henry’s Fork of the Snake River and Henry’s Lake in Idaho.


West Yellowstone is located in the heart one of what is arguably the greatest fly fishing region on earth.  We enjoy easy access to famous and lesser known waters in three states (Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming) as well as throughout Yellowstone National Park.  The diversity of waters around here is truly astounding, and finding good or great fishing any day between April and November is usually just a matter of knowing where to look.

One lifetime is not enough to explore and learn all of the rivers, streams, spring creeks, lakes, and ponds within a two hour drive.  Expand that driving range to three hours, and 10 lifetimes would probably not be enough!  This page is intended to give you a description of just some of the waters that we guide on and enjoy fishing ourselves.  We welcome you to come and explore these and others either by yourself, with friends, or with one of our experienced guides.


At Big Sky Anglers, we’re more than just fishing guides. We are stewards, outdoorsmen, naturalists and conservationists who do what we do because fishing is who we are and what we love. Fly fishing holds a special spot in our lives and we want to help visiting anglers discover that same extraordinary place for themselves.

Top quality, but gentle instruction is the trademark of our focused and relaxed style of guiding. Big Sky Anglers employs some of the Rocky Mountains’ most patient and experienced guides to provide you with an unforgettable fishing experience. Whether you’re a novice, expert, or somewhere in between, there is always something to learn from a day of guided fishing.


We are based in West Yellowstone, MT and consider ourselves lucky to call the amazing streams, rivers, and lakes of this region our home waters.  But like you, we also love travelling to fish and experience different cultures.  Yes, Big Sky Anglers offers hosted trips to a number of destination fisheries, but we have also traveled to and fished many more awesome destinations just to experience them for ourselves.  As such, we are great source of information for anyone out there who might be looking to plan a fishing getaway.
