A full day trip on the "Land of the Giants" section of the Missouri River. This trip meets at the Gates of the Mountains marina 20 miles south of Helena Montana on upper Holter Lake. The guide/USCG licensed captain will meet you at the marina on upper Holter Lake where you will launch a custom jet boat and motor roughly 15 minutes across the lake to the Missouri River. The Boat is a 16 foot G3 skiff powered by a 30hp Yamaha outboard jet. The skiff is equiped with oars, casting braces and seating, which allow it to function much like a drift boat. The fishing is float style fishing with the guide rowing down the river as anglers cast flies from the boat. The motor is used to navigate across the lake and to the various streches of the river for floating. The guide will provide all the flies and tackle that you need for the day. All you really need to bring is a Montana Fishing license, appropriate clothing and sunglasses for eye protection. Floats are typically around 7 hours of floating but can vary depending on the preference of the customer. All of the fishing is usually done from the boat, which makes wearing waders optional and not at all nessesary. At mid day you will take a break on the bank and enjoy lunch provided by your guide. At the Land of the Giants, we target numbers of large trout with nymphs, streamers and ocassionally dry flies. This river will typically will fish well from mid April through June and again from September through October. Trout typically range from 16-24 inches with fish over 24 inches possible. Fish in the 18-21 inch range are normal and the bigger fish of the day typically range from 22-25 inches. The river flows through a steep scenic canyon with beautiful cliffs above. Sightings of eagles, deer and mountain goats high on the cliffs are frequent. This is a truly amazing trip that frequently produces big numbers of large rainbow trout with an occasional brown trout.
