New "Fishing Buddy" trip option! *Attention Local Anglers*
Are you a single angler? Do you live in Gardiner, Livingston, or (heck) even Bozeman? Have you ever wanted to go on a guided fishing trip? Do you sometimes have a hard time convincing your friends to go fishing with you? Have you ever wanted to have someone else tie on your flies and row the boat? Do you want to learn more about fishing your local waters? Do you like having a good time?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, our new “Fishing Buddy” trip option may be just what you are looking for!
What is a “Fishing Buddy” trip? This trip option allows 2 separate anglers to enjoy the benefits of a guided trip with half of the cost! And… you could meet a new fishing buddy… after all- a stranger is just a friend you haven’t met yet.
HERE AT YELLOWSTONE RIVER OUTFITTERS, WE WANT EVERYONE TO GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET OUT ON THE WATER AND LEARN SOMETHING NEW ABOUT FLY-FISHING. THE COST STRUCTURE OF OUR FISHING TRIPS ARE FOR ONE OR TWO ANGLERS- $395.00 FOR A HALF DAY AND $495.00 FOR A FULL DAY(NOT INCLUDING CARD FEES) . WE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS NOT A SMALL AMOUNT OF MONEY TO SPEND… AND WE ARE ALWAYS SURPRISED TO HEAR THAT THERE ARE MANY GARDINER, LIVINGSTON, AND BOZEMAN LOCALS WHO HAVE NEVER FLOATED THEIR HOME WATERS! SO, WE DEVELOPED OUR “FISHING BUDDY” TRIP WHERE WE CAN BOOK 2 DIFFERENT SINGLE ANGLERS ON A TRIP WITH ONE OF OUR FANTASTIC YELLOWSTONE FISHING GUIDES.
FOR THESE TRIPS, EACH SINGLE ANGLER PAYS HALF OF THE TRIP. THIS BRINGS THE PRICE TO 197.50 (HALF DAY) AND 247.50 (FULL DAY) PER ANGLER. OBVIOUSLY, THERE NEEDS TO BE SOME FLEXIBILITY ON THE PART OF THE ANGLERS AS TO DAYS THEY ARE AVAILABLE, BUT WE WILL WORK VERY HARD TO LINE YOU UP WITH YOUR DESIRED DAYS. OUR RATES AND TERMS STILL APPLY FOR THESE TRIPS.- SO PLEASE BE FAMILIAR WITH THEM. ONCE WE RECEIVE PAYMENT FROM BOTH ANGLERS, YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED BY EMAIL THAT THE TRIP IS A GO! YOUR GUIDE WILL CONTACT BOTH PARTIES THE NIGHT BEFORE THE TRIP TO DETERMINE A MEET LOCATION. WE CAN DO “FISHING BUDDY” TRIPS ON EITHER FLOAT TRIPS OR WALK-WADE TRIPS.
GIVE US A CALL, AND WE WILL GET YOU ON THE LIST!

*”Fishing Buddy” trips are not exclusively for locals… we just understand that if you live here you likely have more availability/flexibility to schedule a trip of this nature. If you are from out of town, we are happy to put you on our list for the time that you are here in Montana.
