The Missouri River is widely renowned as one of the West's top tailwaters. The large volume exits the bottom of Hauser Lake at Wolf Creek producing cold waters rich with weed beds and abundant aquatic insects and other macro invertebrates upon which trout feed. Growth rates are high for trout in the Missouri and the average rainbow is often in the 16-19" class. Some large browns also patrol the river. The "Mo" is often referred to as a large spring creek and can provide technical match the hatch fishing over the caddis and pale morning dun hatches of early summer, the early morning trico hatches of August and the blue winged olives of spring and fall. Nymphing can also be productive on the gravel drop offs and seams.
The lodge offers 13 guest rooms, completely renovated in 2020, with comfortable queen beds and a private bath in each room allowing for a maximum capacity of 26 guests. The lodge provides high-speed internet, a spacious common area with a custom stone fireplace, television, bar, and large decks overlooking the mountains. Guests can take advantage of the golf carts rigged for the evening hatch before enjoying an after dinner campfire. The dining experience is phenomenal with creative dishes prepared by the lodge chef and thoughtfully paired with exceptional wines.
