Fly Fishing Guides
Smith River guide extraordinaire, John Howard.

The following two seasons at Healing Waters Lodge, Mike contracted with Bill Kemph, owner of Lilly & Kemph Outfitters to supply well seasoned guides familiar to returning guests and the waters we fish, along with miles and miles of private water access.  At the end of our 2015 season, Mike added to his outfitting business and bought Lilly & Kemph Outfitters fly fishing business serving southwest Montana on rivers such as the Beaverhead, Big Hole, Jefferson, Madison, Ruby rivers and miles of private water access on spring creeks, streams, ponds and lakes.  We are extremely fortunate that LKO guides joined us as well, and, continue to take our guests fly fishing on area waters.

Lewis & Clark Expeditions and Healing Waters Lodge continues to boast a highly respected force of professional, knowledgeable, dedicated, proud, personable, enthusiastic and quality fly fishing guides that are at your service whether you are on a five day float trip on the Smith River with us or staying at Healing Waters Lodge.
