We felt very lucky to fish the Flathead with Hilary as our guide. Her wise, patient counsel helped us catch fish and expand our knowledge. She even provided a kosher-friendly, gluten-free lunch that was perfect. We could not have imagined a better experience.

Even though it was late season and the water level was down, we had a blast. This was a highlight of our trip, despite being in Glacier during the wild fires.

Trip was pleasant, but guide was not helpful and did not offer advice or untangle lines or offer any tips on fishing on the river. Would not book with them again for fishing.

We used Glacier Raft Company on Sept. 6, 2017. Our guide, Lauren was knowledgeable and good sense of humor. Saw bear, bald eagle, raven fish. Box canyon on the float was beautiful. Give them a try! Robert and Jean Olander

We were there in early May, so 30 days before you. You'll be working that paddle, so between that and the wetsuit, we didn't feel cold at all. And it was sleeting during our trip (but it didn't matter -- was still amazing).
