CrossCurrents Fly Shop in Helena and Craig, Montana

  1. 1
    Two Locations to Serve
    Since 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.
  2. 2
    Rental Boats-Rafts
    Our 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!

  3. 3
    Lodging
    We 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 March through October.  However, our Craig lodging, is open all year long.

Plenty of snow this year is making for high river flows now and will be around through June. It will be great fishing on nymphs and streamers in the higher water but then dries should take off gangbusters as the river drops. CALL NOW to book your Guide Trips and Boat Rental for July and August!

Call us in Helena (406-449-2292) or Craig (406-235-3433) or stop by and see us in both our locations.

The MO continues to fish extremely well this Spring. The last couple weeks have seen pretty steady flows in the mid 6000s the cfs and our water temp is slowly climbing, but the stairs are pretty steep right now. Floating the river is the most ideal way to fish the MO right now, but wade.. read more →

Why you should consider getting a boat bag, even if you don’t have a boat. If you think of a boat bag as more of a gear bag, this might just make sense. I describe my boat bag as more of a portable fly shop. Even if I am just going to some small stream.. read more →
