Meet the Outfitter

 Pierce Oja  owner/outfitter of Wet Net Outfitters began fly fishing as a youngster and  working in fly shops at 15. At 18, he was guiding and could not imagine a different profession.  Now spending over a decade working in the fly fishing industry. With a degree in biochemistry, his approach to fishing with a variable limiting, scientific approach to best discern how to catch fish. He possesses a passion for fishing with greatest joy is getting to show his guests something new whether it be techniques, casting, or new water. As a sixth generation Montanan Pierce has grown up with an appreciation for solitude and great fishing. Providing these luxuries with his guests through private water leases and exploring lesser-known freestones aboard specialized rafts to navigate the lower flows. That said, when the Yellowstone or Missouri Rivers are fishing well it is hard not to visit these famous rivers.

Montana Fly Fishing Trips

The waters of South West Montana harbor some of the finest trout fishing known to man. Wet Net Outfitters is pleased to offer our guests a range of Montana fishing trips that will satiate anyone’s fishing desires. Our guests can experience an amazing diversity of large Blue Ribbon trout streams from a drift boat, lesser known rivers that require the use of a raft, and private waters framed by undisturbed ranch land.

Day Trips

For anglers with time constraints we steer many of guests in this direction. Day trips are a great immersion for beginning anglers or those traveling to South West Montana for reasons other than fishing. Our day trips guests can expect the same high quality service and fishing as our guests that participate in multi-day expeditions.

The Trout Tour

For anglers that want to see what else is out there. Wet Net Outfitter’s “Trout Tour” provides our guests with a one of a kind, ultimate Montana Fishing Trip. Our guests can expect to find themselves on new water, fishing at it’s peak – every day. With so many great rivers, streams, and lakes in Montana we will build our guests a custom trip that will satiate any angler.

Private Water Trips

For a truly secluded experience we offer our guests an extensive array of private water options. From small streams harboring untouched trout to lakes teeming with trout that approach mythical size, Wet Net Outfitters strives to provide a prodigious private water experience to our guests.

Private Water

When most anglers allow their eyelids to droop and dreams to develop they see an immaculate trout stream, trout rising to mayflies, and no one in sight. Wet Net Outfitters has dreamt of this experience and provides it all season through our network of exclusive private water leases and limited access spring creeks.  Here anglers can expect to always “get the spot” and enjoy an intimate day with environment around them.

Cutthroat Haven

As the lessor of some of these bodies of water we find it imperative to protect their identity. Yellowstone Cutthroat, especially the sizable specimens, need to be treated with supreme respect. Because of this we offer a limited number of rods in a week to ensure that all of our guests have fresh, wild, native fish to catch. In my eyes I have witnessed very few fisheries that compare to this stream.  Anglers can expect to fish a variety of surface imitations from caddis to frogs. And streamers fished down and across.

The Season: Due to the high elevation of this fishery we do not experience much discoloration due to runoff and we begin fishing up here as early as May and will fish it well into October.

DePuy’s Spring Creek

DePuy’s is perhaps the most iconic spring creek in the Mouton West. Its fertile waters provide an optimal environment to grow and overabundance of insects and trout. Because of its ground sourced water, the creek provides stable flows and temperatures all year. From late March  through early October dry fly anglers rejoice for good hatches of beatis, PMD’s, sulfurs, midges, multiple species of caddis, damsels, and terrestrials. Year round anglers can expect some of the best subsurface fishing in the state from late fall into spring. While it is a gin-clear spring creek anglers that make a proper presentation with an adequate offering can expect to be rewarded.

The Season: We fish DePuy’s  12 months a year and each month offers up spectacular fishing.

Armstrong’s Spring Creek

Framed by the Beartooth Mountains, Armstong’s Spring Creek is the consummate spring creek. While DePuy’s has gained the present day notoriety, historically Armstong’s was THE spring creek in Paradise Valley.  In fact, the water that roars out of the Yellowstone Aquifer to form Armstrong’s is the same spring that feeds DePuy’s, the creek simply crosses a property line! Armstong’s provides an intimate angling experience and some of the finest dry fly fishing known to man. Solid hatches of beatis, PMD’s, sulfurs, midges, multiple species of caddis, damsels, and terrestrials keep fish looking toward the surface more often than not. Beautiful flats, broad riffles, and weed beds galore provide ample habitat for trout and insects alike.

The Season: We fish Armstrong’s  12 months a year and each month offers up something special. The dry fly scene begins in late March and runs into October
