Meet the Owners

Steve and Peggy Temple live in Superior, Montana along the banks of the Clark Fork and frequently fish the local waters for their own satisfaction. They are both active pilots and have been known to fly into the backcountry for a fishing trip or two.

Peggy offers classes focused on helping women become competent, self-sufficient anglers in a fun learning environment. It is a goal of the Temple’s to help lifelong fishing partners share many enjoyable days fishing together. They hope to see you on the river!


Lodging is accommodated at Quinns Hot Springs Resort and our local motels are near the shop in St. Regis. If you bring an RV along there are numerous fee free Montana campgrounds right along the river. Take a day off fishing and explore the nearby Hiawatha Bike Trail which takes you over breathtaking trestles and cool long dark railroad tunnels. There is plenty to enjoy along the Clark Fork River.
