The Story

Join Orvis for a fly-fishing group trip to Montana: Orvis Adventures and PRO Outfitters invite you to undertake a true bucket-list adventure on the Smith River. This river is a masterpiece and one of the most sought-after float trips in the country. PRO Outfitter's Smith River adventure is a 5-day and 4-night float down 61 miles of pristine water in remote country. Towering limestone cliffs, deep pools, fast riffles, abundant wildlife, and fantastic fly fishing for wild browns and rainbows make this a trip of a lifetime. While you float and fish all day, part of our team floats ahead so that camp is set and hors d'oeuvres are ready when you arrive in the late afternoon. Two guests to a tent and boat. All fishing and camping gear can be provided.

A touch of class, in a unique setting, brings you to the tables of PRO's accomplished chefs on the Smith River. You'll be treated to culinary enjoyment that celebrates Montana. Fresh, organic and locally grown herbs and produce complement any entrée. Careful consideration is given to menu planning, and any dietary requests are easy to accommodate; just let us know in advance. PRO provides beverages, including wine and beer. They are unable to provide hard liquor. Please bring your own if you prefer cocktails. They can make a stop locally for liquor upon request.

*Please note that this is a sample itinerary, and this is a wilderness-based trip, therefore the actual itinerary may change due to water levels, fishing conditions, and/or weather.

Guests typically fly (or drive) into Helena (HLN), where they have arranged lodging. We meet guests at their hotel the night before launch and go over details of the trip and give everyone their dry bags (to keep their belongings safe). We can provide sleeping bags, pillows, Thermarest pads, and any fishing gear you may need.

Day 1, Launch:

You’ll be picked up at your hotel around 6:00 am and be transported to the launch, where you will start your 5-day, 4-night float down the Smith River.

Day 2-4, Overnight on the Smith River:

Wake up to streamside breakfast at the campsite. After breakfast, you will float and fish all day, while part of the team floats ahead so that camp is set and hors d’oeuvres ready when you arrive in the late afternoon.

Day 5, Take Out:

Enjoy your last day fishing the final stretch before takeout. We recommend staying in a hotel back in Helena after your last full day on the water.
