Clark Fork River Fly Fishing
The Lower Clark Fork River offers large rainbow and brown trout fishing opportunities. Although the concentration of fish on the river may not be large (less than 100 per mile) the fish can get extremely large sometimes exceeding 30 inches.
Available in full day trips only.
The Clark Fork River starts along the continental divide near Butte, Montana. It is the largest river by volume in Montana and flows north to Idaho and eventually flows into Lake Pend Oreille in the Idaho Panhandle which in turn flows via the Pend Oreille River through Washington and British Columbia eventually flowing into the Columbia River in Washington.
Once the Clark Fork meets the Flathead River near Paradise Montana it become the largest river in the state. Float fishing is normally done below Missoula to the Idaho border. Very large rainbow and brown trout have been taken from the Clark Fork and fishing pressure is normally light in comparison to other Montana Rivers.
The Clark Fork is a fantastic dry-fly river at certain times of year. The fish are large and really fight hard. The guides always love the Clark Fork trips. cutthroats, rainbows and hybrids makeup a majority of the catch.
We can do day trips from the Flathead valley but its best to overnight at a lodge on the river.
