Fly-Fishing Outfitter Service


If you are in need of a professional guide or some local expertise for some fly fishing, while you are in Bozeman.


Schnee’s Powder Horn Outfitters offers full-day and half-day guided fishing trips on all the area rivers: Yellowstone, Madison, Gallatin, Big Horn, and Big Hole plus numerous smaller and private waters. Our guide, Jamie Benedickt, has been guiding and outfitting for more than a dozen years and has experience all over the western United States, Alaska, Canada, Mexico, and the Gulf States. We offer full equipment rental if necessary.


My wife Amy can tell you first-hand what her experience was like out on the Madison 2 weeks ago! She is in the 3rd photo down. This was her first time fly-fishing. Jamie (her guide) gave her a 30 minute casting tutorial in parking lot and off they went. You will be able to read all about her trip in a future post, as she will be a guest writer!
