Whether a beginner, intermediate or expert angler, you can float with an experienced Orvis endorsed fishing guide down the beautiful Bitterroot River or West Fork tributary for a memorable day of trout fishing. Fly Fishing Always guides are the best in the area when it comes to knowing these waters. Complimentary Orvis fishing gear is available from Triple Creek Ranch and your guide will furnish the rods, reels, flies and his or her expertise. Your guide will pick you up in the main parking area of the lodge at your scheduled time. Some guides have "boat dogs," if you prefer not to have a "boat dog," please let us know upon booking your trip.
The Bitterroot River is a freestone, blue ribbon river with its headwaters at the south end of the Bitterroot Valley, just west of the Continental Divide. It flows north through the valley into the Clark Fork River, west of Missoula. Our river is about 98 miles long including the East and West Forks. These waters offer several species of trout including rainbow, brook, brown, westslope cutthroat and the elusive bull trout. Notorious for heavy aquatic insect hatches, the Bitterroot is the place to fish for big trout on dries during the spring skwala hatch. The history of the area, the amazing scenery and excellent fishing make the Bitterroot one of the best places to fish in any season.
We practice catch and release fishing as there have not been any fish introduced into the Bitterroot since the 1940’s and all fish caught are wild.
