For the fisherman who is looking for something a little different and off the beaten path in Montana we are happy to offer up at Montana Troutfitters our Carp Fishing Trips. Carp have been overlooked for years by the fly fishing crowds in favor of the more beautiful species out there, but over the past two decades, we've been happily pursuing these golden beasts with fly rods around Montana and having a blast while doing it. Carp aren't just bottom feeders, in fact they are quite discerning when it comes to feeding in trout country as their diets consist of many of the same food items that trout dine on. Carp aren't for the novice angler either, the difficulty of casting, presenting the fly, and enticing an eat makes these one of the most difficult game fish to consistently catch, which is why you don't want to trust your Carp trip in Montana to just anyone. Our guides are avid Carp anglers and would enjoy putting you onto a new species that just might become your favorite thing to fish for.
Carp Trips are offered as both Walk and Wade Trips on local area Lakes and Reservoirs, and as Float Trips on the same Lakes and Reservoirs as well as certain stretches of rivers around the area. Prime season for Carp angling is from July through early September - outside of those time periods the fish are lethargic and not found in large catchable numbers and we don’t pursue them at these times with clients.
