Welcome Anglers

We are happy to announce that we’ve recently added guided fishing trips to our repertoire of ventures! Mark Young Outfitters is fortunate to own one of the most pristine stretches of trout habitat in the state of Montana along the Sun River. The Sun (as locals call it) flows out of the Rocky Mountain Front only 10 miles away and runs through approximately 10 miles of our family operated ranch and farm, the Flying Shit House Ranch.  Book a trip in April through August with our guide or simply enjoy a peaceful day on the river for the more independent fishermen.  Our knowledgeable fly fishing guides welcome anglers with varied experience levels, and will show you the best the Sun has to offer.  After your day of fly fishing, we invite you to trade stories from your day on the river while indulging in an incredible dinner prepared and delivered to you hot and fresh.  In addition to our private access to the Sun River, we are excited to offer small stream and creek (including the larger Elk Creek) access to any guests that might be interested!


A special thank you to the JJJ Wilderness Ranch for being our fishing endorsed outfitter in the 2020 fishing season! To book a one of a kind MT dude ranch vacation or Bob Marshall Wilderness  horse pack trip, visit their website at https://www.triplejranch.com/.  Outfitter number: 3165.

Interested in experiencing the same amazing fly fishing in a more private setting? Book as many days and nights as suits you to explore our rainbow and brown trout fishing holes. Come alone or bring a group of family and friends. Our DIY fishing days recommend you to stay at our Oscar Kenck Lodge located in the heart of our cattle ranch just 1 mile south of Augusta. It’s location is truly ideal as the Sun River is just a short 5 miles away while Elk Creek can be reached on foot.

Combine DIY and guided days as you please as well as stay at our hunting and fishing lodge for a nightly rate for TWO nights minimum.

A deposit of half your total cost is required for each angler to secure your fishing dates with us. We accept cash, check, Visa, or Venmo. Please make checks out to MARK YOUNG OUTFITTERS LLC, with the remaining balance due upon arrival.  After we receive your deposit, you will need to get your license.



A valid fishing license is required PRIOR to arriving for your day on the river. To fish in Montana, most anglers need two licenses: a Conservation License and a Fishing License. A Conservation License is needed before you can buy any fishing or hunting license that Fish, Wildlife, & Parks (FWP) issues. A MT Fishing license is valid from March 1 through the end of February of the following year. For more information visit http://fwp.mt.gov/fish/license/ or Montana FWP at (406) 444-2950.


Licenses can be purchased online at https://app.mt.gov/als/index/index.html OR at Augusta’s local grocery store (Allen’s Manix) upon your arrival.
