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.
