Bighorn River, Montana

The Bighorn River is indisputably one of the finest trout fisheries in the world, providing miles and miles of blue ribbon fly fishing for rainbow and brown trout. Its cool temperatures and steady flow, combined with prolific insect life, provide an ideal environment for trophy trout.

The Bighorn River holds a greater number of large trout — fish in the 15-20 inch range — than any river in the United States. With around 8,000 trout per mile, it is not uncommon for an average angler to land 20 fish between 15 and 20 inches in a day and most manage to hook into fish over the 20 inch mark during their stay.

Year-Round Fly Hatches

Host to phenomenal hatches nearly year round, the Bighorn provides excellent fishing from April through November. From the blue winged olives of spring to the mid summer pods and yellow sallies to the black caddis and tricos of late summer, there is dry fly fishing to be had nearly every day of the season. As a tailwater fishery heavy run-off is never a problem, making it one of the few fisheries in the west where fly fishing is as good in April and May as it is during summer and fall.

Our Bighorn River Fly Fishing Guides

The professional fly fishing guides for this trip are knowledgeable, courteous and gifted with unlimited patience and enthusiasm. As qualified fly fishing instructors, they can teach the fundamentals to beginners, help intermediate anglers improve their casting form or introduce experts to new techniques for taking trophy trout.

Bighorn River Fly Fishing Equipment

A first time angler can arrive almost empty handed and receive personal instruction, utilize this outfitter's quality Orvis fly fishing equipment and depart with the skills to begin a lifetime of fly fishing enjoyment. You can even allow the staff to assist you in purchasing your personal tools of the trade from the on-site Orvis retail shop.

Upper and Lower Bighorn River

The crew is one of the few outfits to guide on both the upper and lower stretches of the Bighorn River. Our experience on the lower Bighorn presents opportunities for exceptionally large trout and allows guests to fly fish this world famous river in near solitude. Bighorn River trips combine float fishing trips from McKenzie-style drift boats with traditional stalk and wade techniques. See the fishing equipment that we use.

A Tradition Of Lodging Excellence

In 1985 this lodge was built along the banks of the Bighorn River. In 1986 it was chosen among the inaugural group of lodges to receive an endorsement from the the Orivs Company for fly fishing excellence. The lodge earned the first Orvis endorsement for wingshooting in 1990, marking this lodge the first operation to achieve endorsements for both wingshooting and fly fishing. The lodge continues to be operated with the same care and attention to detail that has made it a world premier outdoor destinations.

Nestled amongst the cottonwoods along the Bighorn River, this lodge perfectly combines the rustic beauty of Montana with the comforts of the modern age. The lodge caters to small groups of anglers and hunters who will accept nothing short of the very finest service available.

This lodge has always presented an atmosphere that encourages relaxation and camaraderie. In the great room — complete with trophies, a wet bar and the warmth of a wood stove — the tales of the day’s adventures takes on a spirit of tradition as they are spun out over cocktails and appetizers.

The large screened porch, complete with log furniture and an old-time swing, provides a quiet evening retreat where guests can unwind from the aggravations of the ‘real world’.

Guest Rooms

Each guest room is appointed with two beds, a full private bath and is decorated with an artistic touch of the Montana outdoors.

Lodge Hot Tub

After a day on the river or in the field, slip into the hot tub and enjoy the beautiful Big Sky Country!

Dining

Dining has always been a prominent element of every guest’s stay and many have affirmed it is amongst one of the main reasons for their return. Meals feature such elements as local Angus beef, rack of lamb, upland game prepared with subtle spices and home-grown herbs, wild asparagus, pies filled with Montana berries and, of course, fresh vegetables.

The dining room is a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere that fosters an air of fellowship among people who share common interests.

Although it is usually the trout fishing and bird hunting that first draw guests to the lodge, we feel that it is the distinctive elegance of the setting, the wonderful cuisine and the genuine Montana hospitality that brings them back year after year.

A. We have lots of beginner fisherman and our guides are fantastic. The majority of our guides and staff have been with us for over 14 years. They are great with beginners and advanced fisherman alike.

A. That would depend on the condition of the water and hatches. Our typical float is anywhere from 10 - 13 miles per day.

This area almost always the biggest fish!

A. YES. We have great cell coverage and WiFi (Sorry, no cell coverage on the river though).

A. We spray for mosquitoes so they are usually not an issue here at the lodge. Typically they won't bother you on the water.

Q. Why should I book with this lodge?

A. There are great choices along the Bighorn River. However, we believe we offer a unique experience which is why we have been so successful with our repeat guests. The majority of our staff and guides have been with us for over 10 years. We encourage our guides and staff to get to know our guests. You're more than welcome to come into the kitchen to talk to our chef and check out what's for dinner. Our guides enjoy coming back to the lodge after a day of fishing and spending time with guests on the back patio. We strive for great service and hospitality. Sure there is great fishing on the Bighorn, but it's the whole package that brings you back. We hope to see you here on the Horn!
