The Bighorn River is arguably the finest trout stream for flyfishing in Montana if not the world.  Big Sky Country, long summer days, cool, clear starry nights and plenty of big trout.  There are many great fishing lodges throughout Montana, but the Fort Smith Fly Shop & Cabins has the finest accommodations and the most incredible view overlooking the fabulous Bighorn River.  If you are looking to catch big, wild, powerful trout that will take you into your backing, the Bighorn is the place for you.

Fort Smith is a small, former cavalry outpost nestled in the foothills of the Bighorn Mountains.  

We specialize in guided fishing floats on the Bighorn.  We also have lodging, dining, boat rentals and a fly shop.  We provide the most personalized service of any shop in Fort Smith.  The comfortable and friendly atmosphere is only one reason people come back year after year.

After decades of guiding on the Bighorn, master angler and outfitter Michael Mastrangelo has developed a loyal following of clients, and has personally selected a group of the finest guides on the Bighorn. Michael offers many tips, tricks, and other helpful information on this website to help make your trip a success and entertain you when you are only dreaming of fishing here.
