With world class Montana fly fishing in every direction, First Cast Outfitters is perfectly poised to offer any variety of angling experiences.

First Cast Outfitters guides on many of the waters in Montana, for a variety of species. But our home water will always be the Missouri River. We call Craig, MT “Home” for most of our summer months. With large, technical trout, feeding on excellent hatches, there is truly no place we would rather be.
While First Cast Outfitters may call the Missouri River home, we also fish a number of other waters in Montana. We regularly spend a considerable amount of time at the Land of Giants, Blackfoot River, and running Montana Pike trips. Whether you prefer to sight fish for technical feeding trout or work on newer fly fishing skills, First Cast Outfitters can craft the perfect Montana Fly Fishing trip for you.
First Cast Outfitters hires only the best and most professional guides. Our guide staff all boasts many years of fly fishing and guiding experience and are able to teach anglers of any ability new skills.

About Jeff

My love of fishing began at an early age. Growing up along the banks of the Yakima River, in Central Washington, it became pretty obvious that fishing was in my blood. In 1997 I moved to Bozeman, MT to attend college a little and fish a lot. This is where I really began to hone my skills, eventually trout bumming for entire summers on the Missouri and other area rivers. After an 8 year stint chasing steelhead up and down the coastal rivers of the Northwest, I have returned home to the rivers I love and First Cast Outfitters is born.
When I am not in Montana guiding for trout, you can find me during the cooler months on the Gulf Coast guiding for redfish, sea trout, tarpon and jacks in Rockport, TX.
