Steve enjoys salt water fly fishing in far away places when not guiding and fishing the Yellowstone region. He enjoys cooking and entertaining Lodge guests by reciting Robert Service and cowboy poetry.
PJ Wirchansky is our new Lodge Manager, and has lived here in Montana for over 15 years. He has worked in the guest ranch, restaurant, and luxury hotel business for 20 years, and is excited to be a part of the Gallatin River Lodge team. He grew up in East Tennessee, and spent much of his time outdoors, which is what brought him to Montana. He has collaborated on several marketing and tourism committees in the Big Sky and Bozeman area. In his free time, he enjoys exploring the many hiking trails, and area rivers in Southwest Montana with his wife, Lisa Marie, and dog, Ennis. He has a passion for food, wine, and social gatherings with friends and family.
