Fly Fishing in Glacier National Park

We brought a fly rod along on our family vacation to Glacier National Park and had several opportunities to do some fishing in multiple regions of the park. Not only did we get to experience some of the beautiful scenery of the Rocky Mountains but also caught several fish, including some native west-slope cutthroats! This was a trip I will never forget. Hope you enjoy the video!

    Your camera looks great! What are you using?

    It’s a scene from the movie.

    저도 이런 멋진곳에 가보고 싶어요~

    Is this a fishing vid or a talking vid?

  5. Tony lowry on December 12, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    Type of rod bro please

  6. tooter1able on December 12, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    No waders?

    Just stumbled across your channel and really enjoy the videos! I fly fish for bass and bream in Texas. Could you do a video explaining your thought process in fly selection when you arrive at new waters?

    Looks like the waterfall from Red Dead Redemption 2

    The most beautiful NP in the lower 48, but I am prejudiced. Lived just North of YNP. Itty bitty fish in that narrow stream. Water so clear because no nutrients to color water or to sustain big fish. You should look at backpacking into high mountain lakes in Beartooths, etc.

    Thanks for posting. I visited the park in ’94 but couldn’t fish it and always regretted that. Good to see you doing it!

    Beautiful video!!!

  13. Cliff Hall on December 12, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    What camera did you use for this?

  14. tom parker on December 12, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    What did you say? "you literally can’t touch one" like to remove the hook? its like falling in a cave and the guide says "uh, well you’re really not supposed to touch them"……

    “ one more cast” the wife’s worst nightmare

  16. Pat Aherne on December 12, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    Holding catch and release fish in the centre, out of the water, with one hand damages their nervous system resulting in a mortality rate of 80% within 3 days of release.

    Note to people visiting Glacier with a flyrod: The cutts are predatory. When you [often] can’t get a rise on a dead drift, skittering a caddis in the riffle will draw a strike (especially at the lop of a pool).

    Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwsome beauty.

  19. Nathan Marraccini on December 12, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    What types of flies are you throwing? Heading out there this summer

  20. David Ramsey on December 12, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    Nice video. Glacier is, by far, my favorite trout destination. Keep up the good work. And btw, it’s Fish Creek, not FishING. Getting the place names right will help you build your cred with viewers. Good luck!

  21. Axel G on December 12, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    what is your reels ?

  22. Александр Тенигин on December 12, 2020 at 10:24 pm

    What time of year did you go?

  24. Red Awktober on December 12, 2020 at 10:28 pm

    Wonderful video! Do you mind sharing the soundtrack? Very soothing.

  25. Glen Oya on December 12, 2020 at 10:28 pm

    Noticed that you both were catching very little brook trout toward the end of your video. And yes, it’s always great it you can get outside with nature.

  26. Joseph Gomes on December 12, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    New rule: if you feel you MUST hold a fish out of the water for a photo op then YOU HOLD YOUR BREATH TOO. HOLD YOUR BREATH THE WHOLE TIME THE FISH IS OUTA THE WATER!!

  27. The Trout Adventure’s - Kashmir on December 12, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    Hey you guys do beautiful videos, I love your videos, you really catch some beautiful trouts. been following you since some long. You guys inspired me and I started a YouTube channel, I am based in the other part of world in North India based in Himalayas, Place known as Kashmir, I hope you would have heard about it. We get one of the best rivers to fish, Kashmir Also known as the paradise on earth. I am trying to show the world about our streams & trouts we have. Hopefully you would love it. Thanks 😊.

  28. Bill Knox on December 12, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    Nice video but you need to bend the barbs and try not to handle the fish if you can – will ensure a much higher survival rate

  29. Gerald G on December 12, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    Beautifully filmed, and very well done overall. What a wonderful experience. The fish at the 18min. mark were gorgeous! I am for eating the rainbow anywhere in cut territory. Only one thought if you don’t mind: Too much false casting will really cut down on your takes.

  30. Jordan Cook on December 12, 2020 at 10:37 pm

    Super nice video

  31. Cory Hallett on December 12, 2020 at 10:38 pm

    Great stuff on your video! This is my favorite thing to do! I made a video as well, but not near as good (: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1Z3iTsyi34

  32. Colin Long on December 12, 2020 at 10:42 pm

    Which spots did you fish? I’m going in a week and am incorporating some fly fishing into my hikes.

  33. sandwich eater on December 12, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    Do you even fish bro? No net rookie!!! Oh your video needs more adds.

  34. Sung Kim on December 12, 2020 at 10:44 pm

    When Plan B is actually Plan A…hah great video.

  35. PAKLeow on December 12, 2020 at 10:44 pm

    In the park, can you spin or only fly fishing is permitted?

  36. Pavlin Rachev on December 12, 2020 at 10:45 pm

    Check this out. Good online shop for fishing gear http://www.fishmansworld.com

  37. sultan munsani on December 12, 2020 at 10:47 pm

    beautiful scenery I pay this like Indonesia, comfortable, peaceful, and cool, I had a nice vacation, sultan from Indonesian

  38. David Straub on December 12, 2020 at 10:47 pm

    This proves that trout don’t live in ugly places …. beautiful scenery. Take care.

  39. pfrillele on December 12, 2020 at 10:48 pm

    Hello,do you know why the trees did die at 1.26 min ,17 min and 18.05?Thanks.

  40. Mountains and Marshes on December 12, 2020 at 10:49 pm

    make sure you guys hit the N. Fork of the Flathead on your next trip. Rent a raft and float that sucker, gorgeous, and tons of fish (not a lot of size but there are some good ones)

  41. 빅원피싱클럽™ on December 12, 2020 at 10:52 pm

    😀

  42. Pat Spangler on December 12, 2020 at 10:53 pm

    I really enjoyed your video. My wife and I went to Glacier 5 years ago after I retired. I could not find out any info on fishing in Glacier anywhere but I always pack a fly rod everywhere I go. We hiked just about every trail there. The scenery is second to none anywhere in the world. My fishing experience was similar to yours but I was lucky enough to catch many beautiful small cutthroats almost anywhere I tried. Definitely a hiking and scenery place to put on your bucket list. Take a fly rod to fish while your wife/partner/family takes a break. Don’t forget your bear spray!!!!

  43. Juba Adhi Nugroho on December 12, 2020 at 10:53 pm

    Great video and good spot….👍👍👍

  44. José Carlos on December 12, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    My God, what a beautiful place! You are blessed to have such a place! And still with lots of fish! It really is a paradise! Greetings from Brazil!

  45. Ahmet geril on December 12, 2020 at 10:55 pm

    Unglaublich schöne Landschaft, cooles Video.

  46. scott haney on December 12, 2020 at 10:55 pm

    This was a great video to watch very beautifully done. I’m 60 and new to fly fishing so I used your video is a tutorial I’m looking forward to seeing more

  47. jhall2691 on December 12, 2020 at 10:56 pm

    Leave those little trout alone. Fish for the big ones with a hornberg, muddler, gray squirrel tail, white maribou, jassid, adams, cahills, and maybe even some concoction made from feathers on an old lady’s hat. My cousin once caught a 16 inch, two pound brook trout on some wet fly that he tied on his first cast.

  48. Chris F on December 12, 2020 at 10:57 pm

    Is it worth it to bring waders with me? Looks like you did lots of fishing from the side of the rivers. Going there in September with the family. I’m the only one fishing. (Similar situation as you). Trying to minimize the luggage. Great video!

  49. Esteban Martinez on December 12, 2020 at 10:59 pm

    i just loveee the smell of trout on my hands

  50. jhall2691 on December 12, 2020 at 11:00 pm

    You need a big gob of worms on a #4, or #6 eagle claw hook. That’s how you get the big trout!
