Wade Upper Blackfoot Remote Streams

Wade Upper Blackfoot Remote Streams

$495: Full Day Wade for one or two

We are proud to offer walk/wade trips in the Upper Blackfoot area. Some of these waters on our menu are small public freestones, a private spring creek and of course the Upper Blackfoot River. Native Westslope Cutthroat make up a large majority of fish that call these waters home. Included in these streams are rainbows, browns, cutbows, and native bull trout. Dry fly fishing is exceptional, the scenery borders on the surreal and you'll feel like you're back in the 1800's! Jim Bosshardt will be your personal fly fishing guide and is a resident of Lincoln Montana. He retired from Media One International and now fly fishes on average 125 days a year on the local streams and the Blackfoot River. He has learned when and where to fish these local waters and enjoys sharing and teaching this art and sport. During the spring, Jim teaches the Montana FWP "Hooked on Fishing" program to the 6th Grade Class where they then practice these new skills on a school sponsored day of fishing. *Upper Blackfoot trips begin in Lincoln, MT
