River Knight Outfitters provides experienced guide trips on the Missouri River in the Craig Montana area.  Many consider the Missouri river to be the best dry fly river in the world with Pods of rising fish eating the multitude of bugs the river provides.

If you’re interested in nymphing or streamer fishing, any given day usually provides an opportunity to try any of the above methods. Join even if you’re new to the sport of fly fishing. Your guide Rick loves to fish with couples, youth, beginners, and experts alike. He’s eager to share his knowledge of the river and make sure you have an amazing experience on your trip to Montana.

There’s enough room for 2 guests to join. You’ll be using a brand new, 15’ Ro drift boat. Your main targets for the day are Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout. All catch needs to be released, so the only way to keep your trophy is by snapping photos before you release the fish back.

The main technique you’ll be using is fly fishing but you can also combine it with drift fishing. Catching fish on a fly requires precision and patience, so make sure to practice as much as you can during your trip.

All fishing equipment is covered by the guide. Make sure to purchase your fishing license and pack some snacks and drinks. It’s recommended to bring hats and sunglasses.

Join River Knight Outfitters and enjoy a relaxing day on the river.
