paper texture
When it comes to pure dry fly fishing, the rivers in Missoula’s vicinity provide some of the best opportunities! Former NFL linebacker Joe Cummings is the owner of A Classic Journey Outfitters, the outfitter for the Missoula River Lodge. Throughout the season, his team of guides pursues trout on famed rivers, including the Blackfoot, Clark Fork, Bitterroot, Rock Creek, and the Missouri River. Accommodations for packages are at the Missoula River Lodge with three different fully-furnished locations, all on the centrally-located Clark Fork River. A Classic Journey Outfitters is our first pick in the Missoula area and is the total package when it comes to lodging and world-class fishing. The Missoula River Lodge has rightly earned a reputation for putting guests onto fish with a dry fly, making for a great Montana fly fishing experience.

Lodging Details
Nobody offers nicer accommodations at a more central location to all the great fishing around Missoula than the Missoula River Lodge. The Bitterroot, Blackfoot, Rock Creek, and Missouri are all within striking distance of the lodging and the Clark Fork is right out the back door. Perched on the banks of the Clark Fork River are three lodging options. Each lodge features its own private boat launch on the Clark Fork River, making for an easy start or finish to the day. These lodges are also fully outfitted with full-size modern kitchens, HD TV and Wi-Fi.  Families and corporate groups will love the privacy of the rural setting, with plenty of space to relax and enjoy the living room views of the Clark Fork. 

Food and Beverages
In 2017 their executive chef, Carrie Nowlen, was named by the Washington Post to the top 100 chefs in America and is featured in “America the Great Cookbook.” They are proud of her culinary excellence rooted in creativity and the farm-to-table ethic. Guests at the Missoula River Lodge choosing the all-inclusive package will have a diverse offering of meal options. Each dinner is unique and never the same during a stay. For fishing days, streamside BBQ-style lunches on the river are provided by your guides. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all included in the package.

Non-Angling Activities and Options
The riverfront lodging and its close proximity to Missoula make for some great non-angling options. A trip to Missoula and a visit to the Montana Museum of Art and Culture or the Montana Natural History Center are great for those interested in history and culture. Tours of the many breweries and wineries may interest some, as well as hiking, mountain biking, and river rafting trips. Festivals and fairs are held throughout the seasons, along with farmers’ markets and concerts. Missoula features a number of excellent restaurants as well. We are happy to assist you in the organization of non-angling activities and Missoula has no shortage of activities to enjoy after a day of fishing.
