The Flying Pig Adventure Company is proud to offer guided float trips on the Yellowstone River. We make our living on this water all summer long so no one knows the river better than we do. While we offer floats trips all the way to Livingston, our specialty is floating the upper reaches of the Yellowstone from our home base in Gardiner, MT to the Tom Miner area just downstream of Yankee Jim Canyon. This stretch receives lots of recreational rafting use but relatively light fishing pressure due to the expertise needed to navigate the rapids and rocks. But don’t let that scare you, our guides are expert rafters and these waters are full of eager cutthroats, rainbows, and browns that readily take dry flies all summer long.
Our float trips depart from our riverside headquarters in Gardiner and can last a half-day or full day depending on your preference. Bring your own gear or use ours and don’t forget your appetite as a hearty lunch is included on all of our float trips! Our fly shop is loaded with everything you need for a successful day on the water so if you forgot something, don’t sweat it.
Anglers should be sure to stop in to our Flying Pig Camp Store and Fly Shop at 204 Park Street in Gardiner. Our Fly Shop is fully stocked and offers all of the hottest flies. Rods and Wader rentals, too!
