Floating a western river in a Drift Boat is a fly fishing experience not to be missed. The lure of big rivers, sweeping vistas and trophy wild trout make our regional float-fishing options world famous!
Floating Montana’s Bighorn River is an outing that has developed a well-deserved reputation for some of the best fly-fishing in the West. The Bighorn River is known for being a tremendous resource for brown and rainbow trout, many over 18 inches that will fervently eat a dry fly. If you want to enjoy Big Sky Country with long summer days, cool, clear water and plenty of big, wild, powerful trout; the Bighorn is the place for you.
Wyoming’s North Platte River offers anglers a chance to hook some of the strongest rainbows, cutthroats and browns Wyoming has to offer. The North Platte River (Grey Reef) is situated on the high windswept plains of central Wyoming and runs some 62 miles before it stops holding trout. It is home to some extremely large fish without the traffic or pressure associated with today’s tail-waters. The North Platte River has become renowned for the sheer attitude of its trophy-sized trout. Book a float trip with a Rock Creek Anglers guide, and you’ll soon see why.
Wyoming also has its own Bighorn River. A hundred miles upstream of Montana’s famous Bighorn lies another forty miles of great tailwater trout fishing without the large crowds that Montana tends to draw. Although somewhat seasonal as well as slightly more technical Wyoming’s Bighorn is home to some seriously jaw-dropping trout with a sophistication that can humble the most seasoned of anglers. This piece of floatable water can offer the dry-fly enthusiast a shot at some of the largest (and smartest) trout the Rocky Mountain West has to offer. If you are considering a trip to Wyoming during our shoulder season (Spring and Fall) inquire about this blue-ribbon option.
Another great Spring option, particularly if fishing from a boat suits your fancy, and if you don’t shy away from adventure are Rock Creek Angler’s private 1-man float options. When some of the area’s smaller creeks swell with Spring runoff, the trend is that they clear very quickly. We have access to a few short, but distinctive, float fishing options that are unlike any other offered. Smaller streams and smaller boats make for an adventure unparalleled in the industry. Another “trick” up our sleeve to keep you submerged in variety.
