the best in big sky country

A guided trip is the best way for anglers to experience the awesome fishing and diversity of waters in our area.

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.

A day or two of fly fishing with us will help novice anglers cut the learning curve and give the more experienced angler a chance to hone skills or learn new techniques. The first time a large trout peaks its nose out to sip your dry fly, you will be addicted. It may be the fishing that first grabs you, but it’s the experience of an entire day spent on the river in good company that will make you a lifelong fly fisherman and, hopefully, a lifelong friend of Big Sky Anglers.
