Sweetwater Fly Shop | Livingston Montana Fly Fishing Shop

Livingston, Montana Fly Fishing Shop and Guide Service

Sweetwater Fly Shop is located on the outskirts of Livingston, Montana, at the entrance to Paradise Valley, beside the world-renowned Yellowstone River. Livingston is the quintessential Montana town with unique shops and eateries, encircled by the stunning, snow-capped Absaroka, Gallatin and Crazy Mountain Ranges. Our home at the edge of paradise provides us easy access to some of the most celebrated and diverse blue-ribbon trout waters in America: From placid Paradise Valley spring creeks—DePuy’s, Armstrong’s, Nelson’s—to the mighty Yellowstone River which tumbles through our back yard.


Livingston is also the ideal basecamp for exploring all of southwest Montana. We are 45 minutes from Yellowstone National Park–a beautiful drive, south from our shop, through the majestic Paradise Valley to the Park’s North Gate will lead to the Lamar and Gibbon Rivers as well as hundreds of small streams, lakes and ponds. Bozeman, Montana is a half hour away and the famous Madison and Gallatin River trout fisheries are just beyond that.
