Looking for that Montana experience? Want to throw dry flies on pristine Western Freestone Rivers? Not only is Lakestream a fly shop, we are also a guide service that offers full and half day guided fly fishing trips. Since 1984 we have cultivated a group of hard working guides that care about your day of fishing. If you have never heard of a fly rod, a family that wants to have a fun day on the river or a seasoned pro….. We’ll help you catch fish or help fix that nagging tailing loop.

From our home waters of the Flathead River System all the way east to the Missouri River. Let’s get you out for a fun day on the water.

What should you expect from your day on the water? Your guide will provide all the gear needed for the day, high quality rods, reels, clean fly lines, leaders, tippet and all the flies you could ever need. Trips are based from a drift boat or raft depending on the piece of water you’re fishing. You’ll learn how to cast, mend and most importantly….. Set the hook when a fish eats your fly! Full day trips included a river side lunch that’s usually half way through the day. We’re not serving up beans and wieners for lunch either. From riverside picnic-style lunches for families and groups to vegetarian choices, we have you covered.

Our home water is the Flathead River system. These trips are in close proximity to anywhere in the Flathead Valley. If our rivers are blown or you prefer a lake we also guide on Whitefish Lake and have other lake options. In less than 2 hours we can be on the water at the Clark Fork or the Blackfoot Rivers. Let’s not forget about the Missouri River, it’s one of our favorites and can show you what it’s all about!
