Fly Fishing Expeditions in Montana and Yellowstone Park

Medicine Lake Outfitters is a wilderness expeditions outfitter specializing in fly fishing horseback trips into the backcountry of Montana and Yellowstone Park.

Our trips are interpretive and offer instruction in horseback riding, fly fishing and ‘light on the land’ horse camping.  We have been host to the Yellowstone region’s visitors for the past forty nine years.

In 2023 we are offering set departure pack trips to three fly fishing destinations:  Slough Creek and Specimen Creek in Yellowstone Park, and Elk Horn Basin in the Lee Metcalf Wilderness on the western edge of Yellowstone.

Our Set Departure Trips are scheduled with a set destination, date, and trip length.  We will book individuals and small groups on these pack trips until we reach our capacity of six guests.  If you have a party of five or more we can put together a custom trip to these or several other destinations.
