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 fifty years.

In 2024 we are offering a small group set departure trip to Elk Horn Basin in the Lee Metcalf Wilderness.  Our set departure trips are open to individuals and small parties. We will book to a final group size of six or seven guests.

 If you have a party of five or more we can put together a private party custom trip to Elk Horn Basin for you during the months of July or August.
