Why Fish with Backcountry Anglers?
Backcountry Angler Montana fly fishing lodge in
Dillon is in close proximity to some of the most famous Southwestern trout streams
the lower 48 have to offer: the Beaverhead
River, the Big Hole River, the Madison River, and the Ruby
River. Our rivers are legendary and your experience will be also. Come Join
Our cottonwood, evergreen and willow
lined streams produce prolific hatches of Caddis flies, Mayflies, Stoneflies,
Salmon flies, and Midges as well as Terrestrials. Come test your fly
fishing skills against truly wild trout.
Our select staff of
professional guides can ensure a quality experience while fishing on our famous
waters for truly wild trout. We cater to the experienced as well as the intermediate or novice angler.
Float fishing is the most productive method to
fish our blue ribbon streams. Your guide with years of expertise will position
the boat to give you the best possible cast into the finest holding water. You
will also wade fish the most productive runs and riffles. Float trips are
accentuated by a tasty streamside lunch. For the best trout fishing adventure we suggest our 5 day/6 night package.
April, May and October
can be great fishing while enjoying a solitary experience. However, storms are
possible. In the spring hungry trout come alive with the warming waters. The
spring can be some of the best fishing of the year with early Caddis, Mayfly,
and Stonefly hatches . October is the time that the big Brown trout get
more aggressive and the cottonwood trees change into brilliant colors. It is a
special time to fish our waters and watch the native wildlife.

Backcountry Angler's River Lodge is located within a stone
throw of the Beaverhead River near Dillon, Montana. Southwestern Montana is
widely known as one of the great fishing destinations in the Rocky Mountain
West. Most fishing is for Browns and Rainbows on the rivers. However, there are
also Cutthroats, Brook Trout and Grayling in the area we fish. The excitement of
a wild trout hitting your fly - and the test of wills that follow - is an
unforgettable experience in a truly beautiful setting. This cozy Rocky Mountain
style lodge was built by Tom and Mary Smith. The location and comfortable style
that they choose for the lodge was based on a lifetime of guiding fly fishermen.
Every detail has been carefully thought out to give you a wonderful time away
from your day to day life. It is a special place that you will want to enjoy
with family and friends year after year after year.
Do you remember your feelings when you are on
a beautiful stream with your fly rod in hand - a strike hits - the beauty of the
fish caught - the gentle release back its own habitat - looking around at
all the scenery of the hills, mountains, trees, and sagebrush - listening to the
rush of the water - the stillness of the stream. Life is too short and too
hectic to let these moments escape even for a year. Treat
yourself to the beauty of nature and a wonderful time away from your day-to-day
existence. We anticipate hearing from you and sharing with you a Montana fly
