Montana Fly Fishing Pack Trips

If you enjoy getting away from the crowd to some secluded wilderness lakes for some great Montana fly fishing, you will want to come along with Beartooth Plateau Outfitters on a horse pack trip. For the summer months we are based out of our Orvis Fly Shop in scenic and historic Cooke City, Montana, which is just 4 miles from the northeast entrance of Yellowstone National Park.
When you go on our Montana and Wyoming wilderness fly fishing trips you will be exposed to infinite sightseeing and photography opportunities! Throw in great fly fishing, wildlife spotting, and beautiful wildflowers and you’ll flip.

Horseback pack trips and fly fishing the Montana wilderness

We conduct Montana fly fishing pack trips from late June thru September 15.

Beartooth Plateau Outfitters is also endorsed by ORVIS as a Fly Fishing Expedition Outfitter offering high quality, full service, backcountry fly fishing trips into the Absaroka-Beartooth wilderness and its roughly 1 million untouched acres. This area has hundreds of pristine, high mountain streams and lakes that are home to a wide variety of trout – Brook , Cutthroat, Rainbow, Golden Trout and Arctic Grayling. On our Montana wilderness pack trips you will find our secluded, wilderness base camp. Surrounding the camp is spectacular, unsurpassed scenery and terrific fly fishing.
