Welcome to Kootenai River Outfitters and NW Montana!

At KRO you will find fantastic Montana Fly Fishing,
modern, clean, comfortable & secluded Creek Side Vacation Lodge & Cabin Rentals,
miles of private access blue ribbon trout water, wilderness hiking and much more.
All set amongst the breath taking scenery and solitude of the Cabinet Mountain Wilderness in
Northwest Montana. Come stay, relax, fish, and enjoy friends and family. Leave the stress behind.

This is the "other" Montana. Far off the beaten path yet easily accessible, it is country dominated by millions of acres
of  rugged forested mountains, true wilderness, rivers, streams and lakes. Wildlife abounds here.

Fly fisherman will find quality water where they are outnumbered by Bald Eagles and Ospreys instead of other fisherman.
Whether you are heading out with a guide, or exploring on your own, many miles of un-crowded trout filled rivers,
streams and high mountain lakes are waiting for you to discover.

Now going into our 3rd decade your hosts Robert & Jeanie Winstrom have guided and welcomed folks to this corner of Montana.
If this is your first time here...welcome! If you are a seasoned returning guest we look forward to your return!

Feel free to Contact Us.  We will help make your Montana vacation memories exceptional!
