Private Water Adventures

We love private water fishing.  The seclusion, the setting, and the solitude of private water fishing are hard to beat.  Not to mention lower fishing pressure.  We’re put in a lot of time and effort to seek out the best private water accessible in our area.

A full or half day spent fishing on a piece of private water is a rewarding experience.  Take a peak at our fine private water fishing options. Rod fees apply.

Yes we know, the name of the creek is interesting to say the least.  We will share that story with you while we walk the banks of this willow lined, meandering high mountain meadow stream.  Filled with brown trout, rainbow trout, book trout, and the occasional cutthroat, you’ll be surprised at how big these fish get, and how aggressively they take a fly.  One of our customers favorites.

Nestled in the middle of Horse Prairie Valley, this 2,800 acre working cattle ranch offers the participant an opportunity to experience “true” Montana.  From a pond that contains football shaped rainbow trout, to a technical brook trout stream, surrounded by alpine meadows that are more often than not filled with summering elk, Flat Iron Ranch is a treat to all those who drive through her gate.

Blacktail Creek

We don’t get here often as low water for irrigation limits availability, but when we do we are blown away by the fish we find beneath the surface.  We believe that the fish is this stream are as aggressive as they come.  The reason?  Well, it may have to do with the lower water that comes throughout the summer, and when food his the water, it’s every trout for themselves.  A trout fishers visual pleasure.

If you are looking for a place to relax and let the stress of the world melt away, look no further than Kambich Pond.  Spring fed along the banks of the Big Hole River, this private retreat can produce rainbow and brown trout that could approach 26″ or greater.  Big brook trout and whitefish, along with an occasional Grayling have also been taken. When you’re done fishing, you can sit on the wooden benches, and watch the Bald Eagles soar over the pond and hunt for dinner.

Grasshopper Creek

Flowing through the Grasshopper Valley, this private piece of Grasshopper Creek is sure to excite the dry fly enthusiast.  As the name implies, hoppers are the fly of choice for the entire season on this small, yet highly productive creek.  Lined with willows and undercut banks, the brown trout in this small stream can go over 20″ in length.  Tight, technical, and extremely rewarding.
