world class fly-fishing, none would dispute Montana as one of the
premier domestic destinations. The famed Gallatin
is so close to the Sioux Lodge, you can have your flies in the water
in less than 15 minutes.
Big Sky has the rare privilege
of close proximity to the world class Gallatin river, a true blue
ribbon trout stream. Perfect for fly-fishing! And just one valley to the east and west
lay two other world class rivers, the Madison and the Yellowstone.
In addition, tucked away in the Rockies lay
countless small bodies of water that can be reached by hiking or
pack animals that lay home to trout you have only dreamed about!
There is so much high potential water in the area,
you could spend weeks hitting just the most productive spots! Montana
trout counts in these waters reach as high as 3000 to 4000 trout per
Just one such pack trip as noted by a local
outfitter explains : "The
Spanish Peaks in the Lee Metcalf Wilderness is home to some of the
most pristine high alpine lakes in North America. After a two- to
four-hour ride you will arrive at one of these lakes, and fish
for Cutthroat, Rainbow, Golden Trout or Arctic Grayling. These
fish receive little fishing pressure and the scenery is spectacular!
After a morning of riding and fishing, enjoy a lakeside lunch and
more fishing in the afternoon before heading back. On the overnight
trip, you will be able to fish the entire evening and next morning."
The Gallatin River. Yellowstone
River. The Madison River. The Big Horn and Missouri Rivers. Then
there's Ennis Lake. Lewis Lake. Yellowstone
Lake. And Slough Creek. If a Fly-fishing Hall of Fame existed, these
would all be in it. And all are here within easy reach from Big Sky
and the Sioux Lodge.
Big Sky, Montana is truly world class for fishing.
