I just fished the Missouri river with Channel and Brown. I have previously hunted with Dave Brown in Saskatchewan. His partner, Lindsey Channel, guided for us and was excellent. The trip was great with big fish and the service was as good as it gets. I have fished for almost 25 yrs with multiple guides on multiple rivers. They really don't get better than Lindsey. Very knowledgeable, helpful, and a great teacher. We really enjoyed fishing with him and will definitely try to schedule another trip with Lindsey and Dave. Highly recommend these guys.

Dave and his team are great instructors, accommodating, and (most importantly) know how to put you on fish.

Fished the Missouri River in Montana last week with Dave Brown and his two guides. Trip was great from accommodations, picnic lunch to catching lots of fish each day. Guides are fun, patient and very experienced. Equipment first class. You will be a better fly fisherman after a few days with these guys. Highly recommend Channel & Brown Outfitting.

Had the chance to get down to Montana to do some fishing with channel and brown outfitters . It was early season so the dry fly fishing was tough , but the streamers where happening and the fish where crushing them off the banks and mid river . Great time on the Missouri River fishing with channel and brown.never a dull moment !

I’ve fished with Dave and his team for years. He always takes good care of us and makes sure we have a good time. Dave had been guiding for over 20 years but still has great excitement for the sport. He will also keep you entertained during slow stretches. He’s a hoot!
