Montana’s Bighorn River

Outfitter #215
Fly Fishing

April – October

Since 1981, this lodge has been offering some of the finest fly fishing in the American West. The Bighorn River in southeastern Montana is truly one of Montana’s blue-ribbon trout streams, with an estimated 8,000 trout per mile in some stretches. The rich biomass of this tailwater fishery supported by the constant optimum water temperature feeds fish all year long. The Bighorn is famous for its big Browns and Rainbows. These trout typically range in size from 12″-20″ with larger fish caught all the time. Unlike many other larger rivers in Montana, the Bighorn is best fished on foot, so Mckenzie-style drift boats are used like water taxis to get you to the best holding water quickly, quietly, and comfortably. However, you will also float fish from the boat. The main lodge and guest cabins are situated near the Bighorn Mountains. Rooms are air-conditioned and feature two queen beds and a full private bath. The main lodge dining area serves as the central gathering place to share fishing tales and enjoy a delicious meal.

"We had a blast on our trip!  Caught tons of fish (averaged 75 to 100 each day on a 5 day trip)  and our guide was second to none!  Both of us have never used a fly rod and they had both of use casting like pros in a very short time.  The scenery was awesome.  The lodge accommodations were good and then the great  guide topped off the experience."
(Paul V.)
