Why Fish with Backcountry Angler

Backcountry Angler is one of the most experienced outfitting and guiding operations in Montana and one of the largest special use permit holders on the Beaverhead river, and the Big Hole river as well as a permit holder for the Madison River. And, we are one of the few fishing outfitters that hold permits to fish high mountain lakes and streams in the area for Grayling, and Cutthroats. Backcountry Angler’s exclusive River Lodge is located within a stone throw of the Beaverhead River near Dillon, Montana. Southwestern Montana is widely known as one of the great fishing destinations in the Rocky Mountain West. Most fishing is for Browns and Rainbows on the rivers. The intimate Rocky Mountain style lodge location and comfortable style were chosen, designed and built by Tom and Mary Smith based on a lifetime of guiding fly fishermen.
