Rock Creek Guided Fishing Trips


John Perry is a local outfitter who lives on Rock Creek and has been providing guided trips since the early 80s.  Several of his guides got their start working in our fly shop, and we consider them some of the best Montana has to offer.  John himself is considered one of the top Montana guides and is also well-known for creating the excellent fly pattern, "The Bugmeister."

John possesses the most trips for float fishing on Rock Creek and accommodates fly fishermen of all ages and skill levels.  He also routinely guides on the Clark Fork, the Bitterroot, the Blackfoot, the Missouri and several other bodies of water.  If you are looking for a guided fishing trip, you can't go wrong with Perry and his guides.

Headed by Joe Cummings, a long-time outfitter and former NFL linebacker, Classic Journey Outfitters provides trips for all the rivers in the Missoula area, including Rock Creek.  Working for him are guides with some of the best knowledge and experience around.  Joe and company will get you into fish no matter where you are.


Russell Parks, a local outfitter and former owner of Missoulian Angler, heads an excellent group of guides and has a permit for guiding on Rock Creek during the coveted salmon fly season.  When Parks and his guides aren't out on the river, you can often find many of them in their Missoula-based fly shop.  They are incredibly knowledgable and some of the most down-to-earth people you will meet.
