We used Montana Angler for a 5 day float trip on the Smith River. The trip was outstanding in every way. The guides were knowledgeable and personable and each one taught us something different. They were fun on and off the water. The men who set up camp and cooked each day did an awesome job. The scenery was spectacular and the fishing exceeded our expectations. I would recommend this trip to anybody.
Everything here was top notch. The food was 5 star, the staff was friendly. Planning was easy and their communication was great. My guide Josh was knowledgeable and patient. He put me on the fish and taught me tons about fly fishing. I definitely plan on coming back.
We had an incredible experience at the Madison River Lodge. This trip was a graduation present for my son who had just graduated from VA Tech and we couldn’t have been more satisfied! We did a 5 night lodging / 4 day fishing package and couldn’t be more please with our time there. Amy Allen greeted us on Day 1 at check in and she acted like she had known us for years. She was a great host throughout the trip and bent over backwards to meet our needs. Shawn Strickland took great care of us and made sure that no request went unmet. Josh Wheal is a Super Guide! He put my son and I on quality fish every day we were there. He has the super power of being able to dislodge almost any hang-up you can get into…providing you with more fishing time and less re-rigging time. Josh didn’t hesitate to take us on a wading trip to the Ruby River after two days of float the Madison…and yes, we caught quality fish and lots of them once again. And finally, Scott & RJ got us off to a great start each morning with an awesome breakfast and kept our bellies full at the end of a long fishing day with top notch dinners at night. If you want to experience Montana fly fishing at its finest, you should visit Montana Angler and the Madison River Lodge!
Stayed at the Madison River Lodge by Montana Angler. This place is unbelievable! The staff was overwhelming friendly and attentive. The food was like eating at a five star restaurant each day. If you are looking for a top notch lodge, meals, guides and fishing…look no further than the Madison River Lodge. You will not be disappointed!
Our trip DEFINITELY met (and exceeded) our expectations. Heather did an outstanding job getting us there, and ready to fish, without any hassle. She was a great help and SO patient with a couple of novice fly fishers. She got us rolling and had us on fish the whole time we were out in the boat. She was very knowledgeable about the river, the environment and kept us engaged and entertained the whole day. We couldn't have asked for a better guide experience. Everything from start to finish on the trip couldn't have been any easier. You have a wonderful system for reservations and communicating what needed to be done from our end. And you have a great guide in Heather - I would have no doubts your other guides would be up to the same standards. I would recommend Montana Angler to anyone looking for a guide trip in the area.
