Bighorn Fishing Vacation: A Different Pace, A Different Place Featured

Written by

Venture out to Bighorn River for your very own luxury fishing vacation.

Fishing season is upon us and what better way to make lasting memories with your loved ones than hitting the water with a rod and reel for the ultimate Bighorn River Fishing Vacation.

If you’ve dreamed of Montana fly fishing for years, anticipating your reel singing the song of a running fish, you will not be disappointed with the wonder and natural beauty of the Bighorn River in Montana. The Bighorn River is considered one of the finest trout streams not just in Montana but also in the United States. Famed for its gentle, cool, clear waters and abundance of rainbow and brown trout, the river is situated on the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains just north of the Wyoming-Montana state line. Unlike many rivers in Montana, the Bighorn is a high-quality fly-fishing river for the entire year, offering anglers who don’t mind the elements the opportunity to catch large fish year-round.

Nothing speaks to the soul of Montana like fly fishing. Fly fishing takes you to places that you would never normally go. As you follow the river, you see a whole new view of nature from a perspective that you wouldn’t get otherwise. Seeing the mountains rising up above you, watching an eagle soar over your head as it makes it's way downstream, and spying on a moose as it drinks from the river’s edge are more magical when seen from the middle of the river.

Stay In Style

Entering Montana more than 150 miles downstream from its origin in Wyoming, Bighorn River flows into Bighorn Lake, formed by the Yellowtail Dam, and Big Horn River Lodge happens to have the best access to the finest Bighorn River fishing spots.

Montana’s Bighorn River Lodge has drawn avid fly-fishing enthusiasts and sportsmen alike for decades. The Lodge provides the perfect combination of comfort and outdoor adventure while creating a memorable fly-fishing vacation experience for an accomplished fisher or beginners.

The Bighorn River Lodge is the only lodge situated directly on the bank of the upper Bighorn River, so you can jump out of your waders and into the inviting atmosphere of a resort that reflects the rustic elegance and hospitality of the Big Sky Country.

Whether you want to relax, perfect your fishing skills, or simply soak up the scenic beauty this area offers, the inviting lodge is the perfect place to stay. After an epic day of fishing, unwind and swap fishing stories over courses of culinary artistry, or return to your cozy cabin overlooking the Bighorn Mountains. The impeccably decorated accommodations feature sumptuous linens, spacious decks, breath-taking views, and more.

At the Bighorn River Lodge, the food is as memorable as the fishing. As your guide prepares the boat for your day on the river, sit down to enjoy a home-style breakfast of hearty fare like banana bread French toast, Montana huckleberry syrup, and apple chicken sausage. End your day with dinner at a harvest table overlooking the serene Bighorn River.

The Treasure State offers a wide variety of waters accessible to fly fishing. Within those waters there are options to choose from larger rivers best suited to fishing from a boat, smaller waters explored on foot, crystal clear spring creeks, multi-day backcountry river float trips, alpine lakes, and private access waters. The opportunities to create the perfect get-a-way are endless.

Come and plan the experience of a lifetime and the ultimate Montana fishing vacation today.
