Full Day Fly Fishing Belt Creek is truly a hidden gem in central Montana. While called a creek, it is larger than some rivers. The pinnacle of Belt Creek is the Sluice Box Canyon section that flows through the Sluice Box State Park. Fishing will take place in a beautiful limestone canyon with sheer cliff walls rising up hundreds of feet. Deep pools, and fast boulder strewn runs hold lots of hard fighting rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout. You will break for lunch and then back out to the water to fish for these low pressured trout. Minimum age is 12 years old. Half Day Fly Fishing Half day fly fishing takes place on Belt Creek. After wading through several miles of trout filled waters you will break for lunch on the banks of Belt Creek before you head back. Minimum age is 12 years old. Sluice Box Canyon Float This seasonal fishing trip is one of a kind and consid¬ered one of Montana’s best kept secrets. Float through 200 ft canyons and have lunch on a beautiful river bank that will create memories that will last a lifetime. Overnight Fishing Trip This signature experience is one to remember. An all day fishing trip will lead into a gourmet dinner next to the water. Breakfast will be prepared at the campsite and the fishing trip will continue with you walking right out of your tent and on to the water.
