“I have fished with Donn Dale for most the past 15 years. I have learned most of the fly casting skills I use from Donn. I have caught some of the largest trout I have ever seen from Donn Dales’ drift boat. I have not known a more engaging and entertaining personality streamside. Fish with Donn and prepare to relax and learn.”


“I have been a guest at Clark Fork River Outfitters for the last seven years. Each visit lasted for one week and involved fly fishing for 5 straight days each trip. The dry fly fishing on the Clark Fork is the best I have ever experienced. Throwing a dry fly to rising trout is a frequent occurrence and hook ups are a thrill. Twenty fish days were often the results.

Accommodations are rustic and access to the river is excellent as cabins over look the river. Food is plentiful and the home cooking is yummy. Guiding on the river is offered and the guides are intimately familiar with the whims of the Clark Fork River. I have fished areas of the river from Missoula to the Flathead River with good results in all areas. For an overall excellent fly fishing experience there is little to compare.”

“I have been coming each year to Clark Fork River Outfitters for the past 13 years and have enjoyed each visit immensely. The fishing is great, accommodations are super, food is beyond gourmet, and the surroundings and the river are beautiful. Donn Dale, my guide each year, willfully teaches and shares his long years of gathered knowledge and understanding to make my fly fishing a superb experience. Donn is very good company and has become a close friend.”
