Summer Activities Fishing

Fish Locally

Learn from some of the best fishermen in the area, and let them guide you on one of the many nearby rivers.  We have listed a few of the available Fishing Guides and Outfitters that can help you get the most enjoyment out of your fishing vacation.

The Stonefly Fly Shop

Nestled next to the continental divide, this is the place to come for the Montana fly fishing trip of your dreams. There are more blue ribbon fisheries nearby than any other location in the state.

The StoneFly proudly opened its doors in April of 2006. The shop is the culmination of years of hard work and dedication by partners Chris Bradley and Mike Marcum.

Our fly shop is stocked with all of the latest gear, flies, and fly tying materials to ensure your Montana experience is a memorable one. Whether you prefer fly fishing rivers, lakes, or small streams, we have what you need.

Great Divide Outfitters

Great Divide Outfitters is a fly shop and guide service located in Divide, Montana, just steps from the world-famous Big Hole River. Our central location on the Big Hole allows for easy access to the entire river.

We can help you arrange full day guided fishing trips, or multi-day guided float trips with lodging. The fly shop carries a huge variety of flies intended for trout fishing in and around southwest Montana. We proudly carry flies from local tyers, who create patterns that are unique to the Big Hole River, as well as patterns from multiple other brands. GDO is here to help you get your necessities so that you can enjoy your time on the water.


Troutfitters was started in 1983 by Frank and Edith Stanchfield (Big Hole Valley Natives).  They are assisted by next-generation Stanchfield’s, Lance, Becky, and Kenzie.  All have grown up and fly fished on the Big Hole River.
