My son and I are coming out west in July to fish in Yellowstone and wanted to do a day trip on the Bighorn on the way home. Have checked out a few lodges in Fort Smith and we're thinking about Bighorn Anglers or Bighorn River Fly Fishers. We are limited with funds so we are wanting to do the self guide thing with a drift boat rented from 1 of these places. My question is that I see these places also offer a 2 night stay with boat rental for 1 day and meals for a very cheap price. Are these offers to good to be true? Has anyone ever done this before and what place would you recommend? We've been planning this trip for well over a year and we don't want any surprises. I know we should hire a guide for the 1st time on a new river, but I don't have the extra cash.
Please, any help would be greatly appreciated.
