“The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions of hope.” -John Buchan
Blue-Ribbon Fishing in Southwest Montan
Southwest Montana offers one of the highest concentrations of blue-ribbon fisheries in the world. Gallatin River Lodge is situated between the Yellowstone and Madison Rivers, with the Gallatin River in our backyard. We offer private access to the Gallatin within five minutes of the lodge, and the iconic Yellowstone and Madison Rivers are less than an hour away. The Jefferson and Missouri Rivers, private spring creeks, and alpine lakes are additional options – so the greatest challenge is deciding where to go. That’s where our professional guide service steps in to bring our guests out on the waters that are fishing the best.
