Craig Montana – Trout Town USA

Welcome to the last true trout town in the US. With more drift boats in town than people, this community is the quintessential fishing town, located on the banks of the Missouri River. There’s a campground, three fly shops, two watering holes, a restaurant, camper trailer crash pads, a few summer cabins, some rooms to rent. That’s it. There is no grocery store, no gas pump. This is a fishing town through and through.

Craig is tucked in a scenic canyon between Helena and Great Falls, Montana, each a respective 40 minute drive. The nearby town of Cascade, 15 miles to the east, offers the nearest grocery, gas and other services. Those flying to Montana will find Helena or Great Falls a perfect option.

Things to do

While fly fishing is the primary draw for guests visiting Craig, Montana, here are a few other options while in the area.

Located just 30 miles from Craig, the Gates of the Mountains offers scenic tours on upper Holter Lake. Enjoy a ferry ride along the lake and historic site of the Man Gulch Fire.
While most of the lands surrounding Craig are private, there are still options available. Multiple access sites follow Little Prickly Pear Creak through the canyon, and numerous boating and water activities are available on Holter Lake.
First Cast Outfitters is proud to be working with the Missouri River Ranch for some of the most luxurious accommodations in the Craig area. We are happy to help suggest other lodging options in the area as well, to best suit your needs.
Lodging options are a few along the canyon. Izaaks is the sole option in the town of Craig. Other options are available in Wolf Creek and Cascade as well.
With both Helena and Great Falls a quick 40 minutes away, guests have a variety of options in either town. Dining, shopping, museums and any other city type entertainment can be found in either town.
