Our Rivers

Missouri River

The Missouri River is a large tailwater dry fly fisherman's dream. Consistent hatches of caddis, PMDs, tricos, and grasshoppers bring large numbers of wild rainbows and strong brown trout to the surface throughout the season. A float trip can run from 2 - 15 miles with 5,000 fish per river mile. With that many fish, you're bound to catch a rainbow trout averaging 18" with an occasional brown trout over 2 feet long. The Missouri River is a very technical stream so we provide you with the top guides to insure the most "Xstream" fly fishing experience ever. Size of flies and knowing the prime spots to fish are all things we at X-Stream Fly fishing study so all you have to do is catch "the big one".

Blackfoot River

One of the most famous and beautiful rivers is just an hour away. The Blackfoot River is a freestone river that offers any fly-fisherman the opportunity to try their skills at native west slope cutthroats. These trout as well as rainbows, browns, rare brook trout, and bull trout can all be caught on this magnificent stream. Using large attractive patterns almost guarantees that these fish will strike as if they have never eaten. The Blackfoot River offers countless riffles, pools and runs for you to try your nymphs, streamers and dry flies with the anticipation of catching a fish over 20 inches long on every cast.

Wade Fishing

Get out of the boat for a change and try wade fishing in smaller mountain streams just minutes from the Lodge. These gin-clear waters rarely see fishermen. It is a real chance to get away from all civilization and try your hand at throwing 0-4 weight rods at mountain rainbows and brown trout. The excitement of occasionally landing an 18” trout in the high mountain stream on the light tackle is the essence of fly fishing.

Carp on the Fly

The Missouri River Lodge and X-Stream Fly Fishing is now offering fly fishing for carp. The world’s next game fish on the fly! These fish are incredible, with their size, power, strength, and wariness to a fly. These fish will test any angler’s patience, skill, and ability. Fishing for these big fish is a lot like bone fish or red fish on the flats. Averaging ten pounds, they'll give your five weight rod everything it can handle. To true fly fishermen that catch and release, these fish will offer you something new to try the next time you are staying with us at the Missouri River Lodge.

Land of the Giants

Join us on our exclusive day trip to the Land of the Giants. This section of river houses some of the biggest rainbows and browns this country has to offer in a wild setting. After spending their winter months in the lake, these giant trout move into the river to spawn and spend the summer months gorging on the rich bug life. The average rainbow is around 24 inches, with the elusive brown around 26 inches. This is truly an X-Stream adventure. There is no place in the lower 48 that is going to give you a comparable opportunity to catch wild, trophy, explosive, and sheer numbers of amaing trout as you'll find here. The Land of the Giants truly is one of our special places. Bookings fill up fast due to the limited space. Be sure to request the number of days your would like upon booking your trip.
