Mountain Sky Trout Pond

Fly Fishing instruction can serve as an introduction to one of Montana’s favorite pastimes, or a chance to hone your skills before heading out on a guided trip. Sessions focus on casting and technique, and our instructor will cover a range of topics. Fly rods are available for check out anytime you want to head to the pond, and all pond fishing is open May through October with no need for a Montana fishing license.

Big Creek Self-Guided Fly Fishing

Nearby Big Creek offers a great opportunity to spend a morning or afternoon on water just minutes from your cabin. Densely populated by cutthroat and rainbow trout, the creek offers up a great challenge for experienced anglers, and a few pockets of friendlier water for those relatively new to the sport. Fishing on Big Creek is generally accessible mid-summer through fall, depending on snowmelt, and we have all the equipment you’ll need available at the front desk. Those looking for a guide on the creek can inquire with Angler’s West.

Yellowstone River Float Trips & More

It takes only a few minutes on the lazy current of the Yellowstone River, as you alternate between long looks at the surrounding mountains, and longer looks at the cutthroat, brown, and rainbow trout slowly rising to the surface, to realize why Paradise Valley is a fishing destination for anglers the world over. Let our friends at Angler’s West take you on a half or full-day drift boat trip. Be sure to check availability months before your stay, as trips can be difficult to book on short notice. Fishing on the Yellowstone is generally accessible mid-summer through fall, depending on snowmelt. Those looking for opportunities in the early season can inquire about trips on spring creeks or lakes in the area that offer excellent fishing during any season.

“Having to plan a trip for a group of 20, my experience with Mountain Sky was incredible right from the beginning. We had some pretty specific requirements and the only answer I ever received was, ‘Sure we can do that for you!’ They were an absolute dream to work with. The property itself is like heaven on earth, and the food…don’t get me started, but let’s just say magnificent. Accommodations and other amenities: just what you would expect from an upper-end dude ranch. They did not disappoint; every detail was covered.”
