Bighorn River Drift Boat Rentals

New top of the line drift boats waiting for your arrival

Renting a drift boat is the best way to access the endless trout filled riffles and runs found throughout the Bighorn River. Before you head out on the river one of our expert staff members will help you pick what section of river to float, which flies you should have and what techniques to use.


We try to make the drift boat rental process as simple as possible. After deciding which section of the river to float, a member of our staff will put the boat in at your desired starting point. When you are finished with your day of fishing simply secure the drift boat to the side of the boat ramp you will be taking out at and we will pick it up. While you are floating the river we will shuttle your vehicle from your starting point to the take out so it is there when you are finished. The drift boat rental rate Rental boat times are from 7am until dusk. We will do our best to accommodate earlier put in times when possible. Late night boat pickups for parties arriving after dark will be subject to a $20 pickup charge.
