Madison River Outfitters, West Yellowstone

In 1978 Brad Richey, the owner and outfitter of Madison River Outfitters, made his way to West Yellowstone towing a Lavro boat behind his old Chevy pickup. He began his guiding career at Bud Lilly’s that summer, then spent the next two years managing another shop in town. In 1981 Brad opened Madison River Outfitters. As a full time guide, Brad spent his days on the river with clients while the shop was kept open by a single shop employee. As time went on the shop flourished – new employees were hired, additional guides joined the team, and eventually the little log cabin that housed the shop was moved to its current location where it was added on to. Brad continued to guide until the early 2000’s when he transitioned from guiding to running the shop and outfitting business full time, which he continues to do to this day.

  • Excellent fly shop! Super friendly staff who are very willing to help with flies, locations and fishing techniques. Can get Yellowstone licenses or Montana licenses here. Highly recommended!
  • Had exactly what I was looking for, a rain jacket. Awesome customer service and the sweetest little shop puppy that made the experience even better. Bonus they had cute Yellowstone shirts and hoodies!
