Fly Fishing the South Fork of Montana’s Flathead River in Kayaks is a Dream

This is the way to fly fish the South Fork of the Flathead River in style and get to those more remote fishing gems.

Follow these guys from Della Bay as they fly fish the South Fork of the Flathead River to catch wild bull and cutthroat trout in the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex.

On the South Fork, you have some of the best trout fishing in the United States all carefully managed and preserved in the Bob Marshall Wilderness. The South Fork provides 98 miles of cold water angling with most of it in pristine wilderness. With increasing angling pressure on western rivers the best way to beat the crowds is to put the work in and do a classic fishing and camping trip by following a waterway.

The South Fork of the Flathead River still provides remote campsites and wild trout areas, inaccessible by vehicles. Kayaks and rafts provide the perfect craft to navigate the river and reach those areas that rarely see human fishing pressure; which is probably the most important step in getting on some superior wild trout fishing.

Put space between you and the crowds and get on trout fishing the way it used to be before superhighways and monster cities grew up across the nation.
