Let us help you create beautiful memories on Montana's Bighorn River

The Bighorn River in Fort Smith, a small, former cavalry outpost nestled in the foothills of the Bighorn Mountains, is arguably the finest trout stream for fly fishing in Montana if not the world. Big Sky Country, long summer days, cool, clear starry nights and plenty of big trout. If you are looking to catch big, wild, powerful trout that will take you into your backing, the Bighorn is the place for you. We specialize in guided fishing floats and have have personally selected a group of the finest guides on the Bighorn.
