Just like any fly fishing destination, getting to Montana can require some homework before you leave for your trip. Before you string up your rod streamside, there are several things to consider like flight reservations and car rentals.
The Stonefly Inn has put together this Outfitters Trip Planner page to assist you with your planning. Starting from the top, we hope this will take some of the frustration out of dealing with your travel arrangements.
We encourage all of our our guests to arrive in time for dinner (generally around 8 p.m.) the night before the first day of your fly fishing trip - keep this in mind when making flight reservations.
You will need to book air travel into Bozeman (Gallatin Field) or Butte ( Bert Mooney Airport ). Twin Bridges is about an hour and 15 minutes from Bozeman, and 45 minutes from Butte. As a general rule, most of our guests find better connections in and out of Bozeman (BZN).

You'll find links to all major airlines servicing these two airports. Links for the local car rental agencies are also on each web site above.
If you are flying private air, consider landing right here in Twin Bridges, or 25 miles to the SW in Dillon. Below are the links to the local airports and facilities available.
New for 2008 - The Stonefly Inn will be offering Airport Shuttle Services if you don't want to hassle with renting a car. We ask that you contact Jesse at One More Bend Shuttle Service - 406-925-2575 with your flight schedule.

Turn right at West Legion Avenue and travel approx 4/10 of a mile to MT-2/MT-55/MT-69. Turn left and head south on MT-55. MT-55 will eventually change to MT-287/MT-41 just before the small town of Silver Star. Continue on this road, and you'll run right into Twin Bridges. Look for the Stonefly Inn on your right, just as you come into town. From Whitehall to Twin Bridges the driving distance is about 27 miles or so.
