Osprey Outfitters Guide Service takes great pride in offering fly fishing throughout Montana. We employ top notch guides, not only for their ability to put their clients on fish, but more importantly for their ability to teach novice and expert anglers about our home waters.
Each one of our guides spends the majority of each year on the water; either working or trout hunting on their own time. To work as a guide at Osprey Outfitters you must have river water running through your veins!
Although the majority of our guided trips are run on the Bitterroot River (our home water), we are licensed for almost all Montana rivers. The other “Big Three” are the Clark Fork and Blackfoot Rivers, which are just a short hour drive from the shop, and the Missouri, an approximate 3 hour drive. If you have the time, it is great to experience more than one of Western Montana’s rivers while you are here.
A day of fly fishing in Montana with Osprey Outfitters all begins about the same. We typically meet at the shop at a pre-designated time. However, we would be happy to pick up and drop off at the hotel or lodge where you are staying.
If you do not have any fishing gear, we will be happy to supply it to you at no charge. All your terminal tackle (flies, leaders & tippet) is also included. We typically fish at least eight hours a day and the trip includes a gourmet stream side lunch as well as snacks and refreshments during the day.
We suggest you bring a few items on your own if you have them:
- 4, 5 &/or 6 Weight Fly Rods
- Polarized Sunglasses
- Rain Jackets
- Several layers of clothing ESPECIALLY in the Spring & Fall months

We require a 50% deposit to book a guide. The deposit is fully refundable up to 30 days prior to the date of the trip. If there is a cacellation less than 30 days before your trip, the deposit is nonrefundable.
However, we will be happy to reschedule the trip for a different date. We will make exceptions due to weather, river conditions and emergencies on a case by case basis.
We work with several lodges and guest ranches and would be happy to find a place that suits your needs. Please inquire via email or at the shop for lodging options. You can also find several lodging options on our lodging page.
