“If fishing is like religion, then fly fishing is high church.”
The fly-fishing season never really ends in Montana. It just depends on your threshold for chilly waters, as fall and winter can be just as fruitful for catching cutthroat, brown and rainbow trout as the summertime. You never need to hit the same spot twice as the Clark Fork River and a highly productive trout stream – Rock Creek– run through the Rock Creek Cattle Company property.
You can also cast your line into the on-site Rock Creek Lake, next to the Home Ranch. This mile-long, high-mountain lake feels like it’s miles from anywhere. The secluded setting is perfect for canoeing, kayaking and float-tube fishing. You are also within a couple hours’ drive from such storied waters as the Blackfoot and the Missouri.
