Fish Vibrant Headwaters

The Snake river is a favorite spot for keen eyed nymphers, wade fly fishers, wind whipped rafters and river guides, and adrenaline seeking kayakers alike. In the world of fly fishing, the most important aspect of the Snake river is its head waters. The headwaters of the snake river are world renowned for their pristine clarity and  they lead to heart lake which pierces nearly into the center of Yellowstone's eco system. 
Come book a guided fly fishing trip with us in one of our favorite blue ribbon filled ecosystems.  
Chad Olsen of Greater Yellowstone Flyfishing Outfitters is a first-rate fly fishing outfitter. I've fished with him on the Missouri River in Craig, Montana, and plan to fish with him again when I return to Montana or Wyoming. He guided me, my son, my dad, and some other friends and relatives over several days on each trip. He's one of the best outfitters in the region based on his experience on the water and his ability to read local conditions and hatches. He has a gentle manner to him and is always friendly and encouraging. His beloved late chocolate lab, Ursa, was a welcome and fun addition to the trip. He's also an excellent photographer and took the time to take many photos and provide them to us after the trip. I highly recommend Chad wherever you may be fishing in Montana or Wyoming. He's the first person I plan to turn to when I return.
