About Your Trip

Float the Upper or Lower Madison, Yellowstone, or Gallatin River fishing with Ikaika and his team for an unforgetable fishing trip through the always gorgeous big sky state!

Open to fishing from Saturday of Memorial Day weekend through the first Sunday in November, the Gallatin River is a cold, high-elevation, freestone river with grassy meadows, thick willow banks, pocket water, healthy trout, and little to no crowds. This river won't have as many fish per
mile as other rivers closer to Bozeman, but it makes up for this with fish size, incredible scenery and low fishing traffic. Bears and moose have been spotted around here, so be sure to bring some bear spray!

On this 8 hour excursion, Ikaika will float you into the river from one of the Yellowstone Park access points. From here he'll give you some of his expert fishing tips and let you try your luck. Whether you're new to fly fishing or not, Nate is eager to teach and will get some fish on your line!

Regardless of your fishing needs, Ikaika's got you covered. Ikaika will provide all the rods, reels, flies and tippet you need to get out on the water and catch some fish. You will also need to purchase a special Yellowstone National Park fishing license (no state license is required) and pay a $20 entrance fee to get into the park. A hat, sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, and a rain jacket are recommended. Enjoy your day out on the water with Ikaika!

Everything Else to Know

You'll need to buy a fishing license before getting out there. Find out more about licenses here.
This trip is managed by an outfitter. Ikaika will be your point of contact and you will go out with one of their guides.

The deposit for this trip is non-refundable (but if the weather is too bad to go out, you will still receive a credit back to your account).

Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
