Welcome to Stillwater Anglers —
A Montana Fly Shop and Fly Fishing Outfitters

Enjoy the beauty that is Montana!

Fishing is the life blood of many Montanans and it's been that way for generations. A love of fly fishing has been handed down from father to son, grandfather to grandaughter, brother to sister, friend to friend. Stillwater Anglers Fly Shop & Outfitters carries on that tradition by passing on the knowledge to help you hone your skills and experience the thrill and serenity of fly fishing at its finest — all amidst our stunning backcountry.

Stillwater Anglers is located in Columbus, Montana, deep in the heart of some of Montana's premier blue ribbon fly fishing waters. Our specialty is guided fly fishing float trips for wild trout, including native Cutthroat, Rainbows and Browns. Basic services include half or full day trips on the Stillwater and Yellowstone Rivers in and around the greater Columbus area. In addition, with prior arrangements, we also offer full day trips on the Bighorn River or upper Yellowstone River. Our newest offerings for guided trips include the Paradise Valley Spring Creeks and the Boulder River.

If you're an experienced fly fisherman looking to book a destination trip, or a beginning angler wanting to learn how to fly fish, let Stillwater Anglers help you plan your next trip to the beautiful waters of south central Montana.

Join us along our rippling rivers — it's one of the best places on the planet!

A Typical Day of Fishing...
A Favorite Local Spot or a Montana Fishing Vacation

At the start of our day, we meet at a pre-arranged location and head to one of the nearby rivers. Current fishing and weather conditions, as well as your preferences and experience, will determine the specific river and section to be floated for that day. We're usually on the water fishing by mid-morning. At mid-day, we stop for a streamside lunch that also provides an opportunity for additional wade fishing or just a chance to relax and do some nature watching. Fly fishing continues through the afternoon and we arrive at a pre-arranged take out by late afternoon to early evening, based on the timeframe coordinated with you at the start of the day. Return transportation is provided back to a pre-arranged location and concludes the day.

All our Montana fishing trips provide you with "one stop shopping" convenience, the only thing you'll need to enjoy a great fly fishing experience — is you! We provide the rest. Our package includes a full day of guided fly fishing, transportation, lunch, snacks and beverages, all flies and tackle, and use of fly rods and reels. We also provide waders wading boots in common sizes.
