RV Fly Fishing In MT, ID, WY, ??

We're on the last leg of a loop that took us from Washington's upper Olympic Peninsula to Wisconsin by mostly I-90 and returning by mostly I-80. We're in Boardman, OR, at the moment on the banks of the Columbia River. On the way east, we were reminded of the beauty and majesty of the northern Rockies and the high plains.

It struck me that it would be fun to go fly fishing in MT or ID or WY while using the coach for eating and sleeping. In a cursory Google search it seems, logically enough, that most of the fly fishing, bird shooting, etc., resorts offer the whole enchilada - transportation from/to the airport, room at the inn, guide, gear, licenses, etc.

That's all well and good but we were thinking more along the lines of an RV park, near where "a river runs through it". A place where access to the fishing activity is on an a la carte basis.

Anyone done something like that?

TIA,

Head up US 12 from Lewiston ID.....but go to Enterprise OR and take the "Rattlesnake" down to the Grand Rhond River and back up to Lewiston......GOOD fishing RIGHT NOW...then head east on US 12 fishing as you go to Powell JCT, then south of LOLO MT hit the Salmon River at Shoup ID .....28" is common RIGHT NOW....then go to Stanley area to waste your time....bring your own rock to sit on......

I did a week long rafting trip last year on the Selway River in Idaho, just before purchasing our rig. It made even a lousy fisherman like me look good. All catch and release with barbless hooks. On the trip out from the takeout, there was a really neat looking area called Three Rivers Resort I think I could stay there a month, no problem. The area is called Lowell, ID and it's a couple hours south of Missoula, MT.

Haven't done the fishing thing, but, there is a very nice RV Park near the river that Norman Maclean wrote about in "A River Runs Through It and Other Stories". Jim and Mary's RV Park in Missoula, MT (Jim and Mary's RV Park) is close to the Blackfoot River. There's another beautiful section of the Missouri, near Craig, MT, that's not far away, too.

If you like Maclean's "A River Runs Through It", be sure to read his "Young Men and Fire". The site of that fire (Mann Gulch) is very nearby (in Montana miles), too.

Take care,
Stu

P.S. While in Craig, be sure to stop for dinner at Izaak's Restaurant.

How about 3 rivers, the Selway, the Clearwater, and the Lachsa.

Look into Yellowstone's Edge RV Park outside Livingston, Montana (A River Runs Through It). One of the co owners is a guide/instructor and will be happy to fix you right up.
