Fly Fishing in Glacier National Park

Fly Fishing in Glacier National Park

We brought a fly rod along on our family vacation to Glacier National Park and had several opportunities to do some fishing in multiple regions of the park. Not only did we get to experience some of the beautiful scenery of the Rocky Mountains but also caught several fish, including some native west-slope cutthroats! This was a trip I will never forget. Hope you enjoy the video!

    The color of those rivers is amazing!

    Even in MT you guys can’t even break 14"!! Absolutely amazing. A real handicap taking away those barbs and the nets huh?! And just because the system is oligotrophic doesn’t mean inverts, especially macros inverts, are limiting to the population size or the size of the trout. Do you even science, bro? Rainbows aren’t even native to the area!! Good video quality, bad video content.

    Another good vid! Subbed!

    Great video. I go to Victor, Idaho in September and we fish Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado and Montana, time is limited so we pack it in. I think the beauty out weighs the fishing, sort of, not really.

    Hi! Which camera did you making this video? 👍

  6. George S. on December 25, 2019 at 4:01 am

    Thank you, for an absolutely wonderful video!

  7. TheGRider56 on December 25, 2019 at 4:01 am

    Beautiful video!!!

  8. Colin Long on December 25, 2019 at 4:01 am

    Which spots did you fish? I’m going in a week and am incorporating some fly fishing into my hikes.

  9. Dawa Phutty Lepcha on December 25, 2019 at 4:03 am

    Its brook trout bro. Nice catch.

  10. ABADDON 247 on December 25, 2019 at 4:04 am

    Beautiful water man, wish I were there casting flies with y’all.

  11. Austin Young on December 25, 2019 at 4:06 am

    That fish definately wasnt a rainbow. It looked like some hybrid of the golden trout

  12. Cylus Stremel on December 25, 2019 at 4:07 am

    The best part about this video is I recognize most of the places you’re fly fishing. I live about 20 minutes away and learned to fly fish in the park. I’m glad you enjoyed.

  13. Jamppa Peltotalo on December 25, 2019 at 4:09 am

    A tenkara rod would have been great. Wind and deep pools not ideal for it though.

  14. GoBlue576966 on December 25, 2019 at 4:10 am

    Amazing video!! That was a rainbow. Any trout with cutt at that size will always have a slash mark. I’ve caught smaller cutts than that and it had the slash.

  15. Glen Oya on December 25, 2019 at 4:10 am

    Noticed that you both were catching very little brook trout toward the end of your video. And yes, it’s always great it you can get outside with nature.

  16. Adrian G on December 25, 2019 at 4:10 am

    What time of year did you go?

  17. sandwich eater on December 25, 2019 at 4:14 am

    Do you even fish bro? No net rookie!!! Oh your video needs more adds.

  18. Backyard Angling on December 25, 2019 at 4:16 am

    Hard to believe people are netting tiny fish like that. Learn to release fish without netting. Even a silicone or catch and release net dangers the outer slime of salmonids. I’m totally barbless and have released hundreds of fish between 3- 7 lbs easily without ever netting.

  20. Cheez Head on December 25, 2019 at 4:17 am

    You guys did a wonderful job. I’ve flyfished all over the country. Never in GNP. I know there’s bulls and Arctic Grayling up there. Grayling remain on my Bucket list. Curious to what admission to the park is and non-resident fishing fees are?

  21. chris p on December 25, 2019 at 4:17 am

    truly wonderful video thank you for sharing you hav rejuvenated my spirit today, creeks and rivers in Glacier can’t wait to get back

  22. Deeply Driven Outdoors on December 25, 2019 at 4:18 am

    Your camera looks great! What are you using?

  23. David Unger on December 25, 2019 at 4:21 am

    What were the names of the trail hikes you showed at the end of the video? Great views!

  24. trevor Mcfadden on December 25, 2019 at 4:23 am

    I live around 15 min from there

  25. Bill Knox on December 25, 2019 at 4:25 am

    Nice video but you need to bend the barbs and try not to handle the fish if you can – will ensure a much higher survival rate

  26. richard tedesco on December 25, 2019 at 4:25 am

    Any grizzly bear incidences?

  27. Justin Simmons on December 25, 2019 at 4:26 am

    Hey guys, just wanted to tell you that this is one of my favorite fly fishing videos I’ve ever seen! I’m from Oklahoma but my heart is in N.W. Montana. Been there and loved it! I’m just now trying to learn fly fishing but would love to try it in Glacier National Park. Thank you and keep up the good work!

    Nicely done, guys! I visited the park a couple of years ago, with my daughter, and I didn’t even think to wet a line. And, I recognize a couple of those waters you fished. We also stayed at Fish Creek Campground a couple of days. Thanks our video gets me exited to go back and see all those many parts of the park we didn’t get to visit, and for me to toss a but into the water.

    What time Of year did you go, and how long did you stay?

  29. pfrillele on December 25, 2019 at 4:31 am

    Hello,do you know why the trees did die at 1.26 min ,17 min and 18.05?Thanks.

  30. Dane Lobe on December 25, 2019 at 4:31 am

    Montana resident for +5o years the best fly fishing in my opinion are Big Mo, Gallatin river, Madison, Big hole and the Yellowstone !! but my favorite getaway is with out a doubt is the Mussleshell. Glacier park is my favorite park in the united states, with the Frank Church river being my second choice with Yellowstone NP. love your guy videos, a little more panoramic views would be appreciated !!!

    {Musselshell on fly rod with 3-4 b small mouth is a fisherman’s thrill. I have caught the occasional 5 pound bass, what a fight.
    cutthroats up north are plentiful and big, you got walleye 5 pound browns 12" brook and some rainbows. There is also paddle fish in the lower parts. SSSSSShhhhhh secret }

  31. cpf383 on December 25, 2019 at 4:32 am

    Is it worth it to bring waders with me? Looks like you did lots of fishing from the side of the rivers. Going there in September with the family. I’m the only one fishing. (Similar situation as you). Trying to minimize the luggage. Great video!

  32. Sheldon on December 25, 2019 at 4:33 am

    Great video! Very beautiful place! I live in Russia, and your videos help me learn English. Thanks! In my country fly fishing is rarely occurs so it very interesting for me. (Sorry if i wrote somthing wrong)

  33. Gaffneydaniel92 on December 25, 2019 at 4:34 am

    Sounds like PA native. Great footage. Enjoyed watching

    What trails were you guys on?

  43. J Coats on December 25, 2019 at 4:44 am

    Why would you continue to catch juvenile fish endanger their survival?

  44. Dawa Phutty Lepcha on December 25, 2019 at 4:45 am

    The place truly magical. Nice healthy native trout n da ones u mentioned tiny rainbows its called brook trout..doesn’t get much big.
