CROSSCURRENTS FLY SHOP MONTANA
CrossCurrents Fly Shop in Helena and Craig, Montana
1Two Locations to ServeSince 1994, our original fly shop has been at the same location in Downtown Helena and is open year round. In 2001, we opened our second fly shop on the Missouri River in the tiny trout town of Craig, Montana. Our Craig shop is open seasonally from the end of March through October.
2Rental Boats-RaftsOur Craig store is the location for all of our Boat Rentals. We rent Drift Boats, Rafts (for fishing or fun), Single-Person Kick Boats, Inflatable Kayaks and Stand-up Paddle Boards (SUPs). Most of our boats are used on the Missouri River but our rafts can be rented for the Smith River, Blackfoot River or other waters. We are your Smith River Experts!
3LodgingWe built a 2-story fly shop and motel right in the middle of the trout town of Craig, Montana to provide more room for our expanding Guide Service, retail business, boat rentals and to help provide much needed lodging for the Missouri River area. Our retail fly shop is open from the end of March through October. However, our Craig lodging, is open all year long.
Give us a call or stop by and see us in both our locations!
