Yellowstone Valley Lodge, Montana, USA
a highly personalised fly fishing lodge
Yellowstone Valley Lodge offers a highly personalised fly fishing experience in Paradise Valley, Montana. The guides here are committed to offering the best fly fishing on both the Yellowstone River and a diverse array of blue-ribbon streams such as the Boulder, Park waters, Gallatin, and Madison rivers.
World class fishing in the American west
At sunrise, guests come down to the lodge and enjoy their morning coffee in the quiet solitude of the riverside before a hearty breakfast of fresh fruit, fresh pastries, eggs to order, waffles, or the daily special.
Angling guests are met by their guide at breakfast and most days you are on your way fishing by 0830. Breakfast is served until 0900, which gives you plenty of time for a later departure if that’s your choice. Complete picnics are packed for you in an ice cooler with plenty of water and soft drinks for that days’ adventure wherever you may go; by boat, boot or hoof.
The watersheds have healthy populations of both brown and rainbow trout, and your expert guides will help you find the epitome of Western trout stream fishing. Your movement around the rivers will be based upon the conditions at the time, allowing for the best chance at hooking that fish of a life time.
“The finest trout fishing I have ever experienced. I especially enjoyed the variety of private water, float trips and wading, pretty much every environment there was for trout. While I fished the family had a fabulous time experiencing ranch life.” C.H. Hampshire, UK
Relax in spacious cabins
After you’ve returned from fishing and had time to relax, you’ll be welcomed back to the lodge with to enjoy a drink along with some tempting appetisers. Your guide is encouraged to stay and spin fish tales of that one that got away.
