Fishing

Grey Cliffs Ranch Lodge is located just off the Lower Madison River, about 30 minutes outside of Bozeman, making it a great location to fish the various waters of the Madison and Gallatin valleys. This central location allows guests to fish a variety of both public and private waters as an easy day trip from the lodge. The variety of fishing options, luxury accommodations, outstanding dining, other activities on the ranch and picturesque setting makes this lodge a favorite for couples and large groups alike.

Lower Madison River - The home river for the lodge, the lower Madison exists Bear Trap Canyon and flows north to the town of Three Forks where it meets up with the Jefferson and Gallatin rivers to the form the Missouri. The broad river has huge weedbeds that produce excellent habitat for aquatic insects. Some huge trout reside in this section of the Madison. It is a great spring and fall fishery, but mid summer water temperatures prevent good fishing in July and August most years. April through June and September through October is a great time of year to target this fishery.

Upper Madison River - The Upper Madison offers an amazing diversity of water from Yellowstone National Park to Ennis Lake. A 45 to 90 minute drive from the lodge will get you on one of the various sections of the Upper Madison, with each section offering unique characteristics. The Upper Madison is renowned for its incredibly consistent fishing throughout the year. Flowing through one of the most scenic valleys in Montana, the impressive scenery, high trout counts, and potential for trophy fish make this a must fish river for visiting anglers.

Gallatin River - The Gallatin River is a medium sized river that offers nice wade fishing and also some float fishing near its mouth. The river flows north from its origin in Yellowstone Park, past the town of Big Sky through the Gallatin Canyon, then through the pastoral Gallatin Valley to its confluence with the Missouri River. The Gallatin is a very picturesque river with crystal clear water and lots and lots of trout. The river is not known for trophy trout like some of the other larger rivers in the area, but the beauty of this river and its small intimate nature make this a favorite of many anglers. Because of the very high trout density, this river often produces fast action and high catch rates.  

Yellowstone River - An hour drive from the lodge gets you to the longest free flowing river in the lower 48 and one of North America's most productive wild trout fisheries. The "Stone" offers over 200 miles of high quality trout waters that include a variety of fish species and water characteristics. The style of fishing on the Yellowstone is classic western big water angling with the most productive techniques often involving big streamers and large foam attractor dry flies. The size of the river lends itself to float fishing from rafts and drift boats.

Spring Creeks - Along the Yellowstone River in Paradise Valley, several spring creeks offer some of the most challenging fly fishing conditions in the world. These technical fisheries originate from underground aquifers and flow cold and clear year round. The biomass in these spring creeks is astounding and trout densities are extremely high. The combination of abundant food, and gin clear waters produce conditions that require stealth and match the hatch presentation. Many anglers consider fishing these spring creeks to be the ultimate challenge in the sport.

Private Ranches - Montana Angler leases several ranches and has permission on a few others within an hour drive of the lodge that offer intimate and lightly pressured fishing opportunities on small but productive wading streams and a few trophy stillwaters.
