About our Fly Fishing trips:

Yellowstone National Park is the place you visualize when daydreaming about being on a gently flowing river, surrounded by the majesty of soaring mountain peaks and broad meadows, making the perfect cast across the sun-dappled water. No other location in America offers quite the same combination of natural beauty and great fishing that you’ll find when fly fishing the legendary Yellowstone River and other rivers within the park. And Flying Pig Adventure Company is ready to take you there.

Steve has put together a team of guides who eat, sleep, and breathe fly fishing. Most importantly, he has chosen guides who are outgoing and want to share their passion for fly fishing and the waters of Yellowstone with our guests, regardless of whether they have fished their whole lives or just want to give fly fishing a try for the first time. The Flying Pig team has a desire to teach and in the end wants everyone to walk away with an appreciation and love for fly fishing that will last a lifetime.

We welcome new fly fishing enthusiasts and experienced anglers alike. Based out of our fully decked out Fly Shop, our guides and fly fishing trips are set up to accommodate any level. We love seeing the excitement and satisfaction on the face of a guest when the hook is set and they land their first rainbow or cutthroat…or even their hundredth!

Looking for a Yellowstone River Float Trip? We can take you there, too. Just outside Yellowstone Park, the upper stretches of the Yellowstone River are lightly fished but hold large numbers of native cutthroats, rainbow and brown trout. Our private access to the river allows our guides to put you where the fish are without fighting the crowds.

The Flying Pig is always working on developing new adventures for our guests. We are so proud of our most recent addition, the Overnight Fly Fishing Adventure on the Yellowstone River. This amazing adventure packs two full days of spectacular fly fishing on the Yellowstone River with an overnight stay right on the river in our comfortable wall tents or cabin. We will handle all of the details so you can sit back and enjoy the one-of-a-kind fishing and scenery that can only be found on the upper Yellowstone River. We also have some other Yellowstone Park lodging options.

  • Half Day Float $375 for One to Two People

Trip Details

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!

What other’s are saying about our trips on

“My husband and I took a half-day guided fly fishing trip in Yellowstone and we thoroughly enjoyed it! Buddy was our guide, and he was extremely knowledgeable on everything. He was a great teacher and made fly fishing easy for us two newbies lol. We each caught a brook trout! Whenever we come back to the area, we will definitely be using The Flying Pig (and Buddy!) for our guided trips! We highly recommend this company!”

“This is our 3rd year using Flying Pig for fly fishing guide services. These guys are great. Besides putting the adults on fish, they work extremely well with the kids too and have them all hooked. (pun intended)”

“Brogan and Jordan, were fabulous! They were Very patient and extremely knowledgeable in teaching rookie fly fisherman! We had a great hike and caught fish! Be sure to plan for a nice hike and getting your feet wet!”
