Fly Fishing

How do you catch a fish on a fly? Find out in our Fly Casting Clinics where a professional ORVIS guide will teach special knots for tying your fly; casting the line; setting the hook and how to bring in your catch. After your lesson, you are ready to fish one of our stocked trout ponds. The kitchen will be delighted to cook up your catch for lunch or dinner! Complimentary fly fishing equipment is available from the Activity Center in the Main Lodge.

If you would like to fish the Bitterroot River on your own, visit with a Guest Experience planner for any equipment needed, a Montana fishing license, and a map to local fishing access. We can direct you to nearby scenic areas just a short drive away. Ask for a cooler of your favorite beverages or have us pack a lunch to take with you.

Triple Creek Ranch also has stocked trout ponds. One is located above the Lodge and another larger pond is in the pasture along the West Fork Road.

Triple Creek Ranch stocks a full array of fly fishing equipment to outfit any angler. If you wish to purchase your own equipment, the Gift Shop at Triple Creek Ranch can place an order with a two week notice. If stocked by ORVIS, your new equipment will be waiting for you in your cabin upon arrival.

For guests who wish to venture out on the Bitterroot River and its tributaries, please ask a Guest Experience planner about going on a full or half day Fish Float with a professional guide.
