Fly Fish Montana’s Private Waters

Fish the Beaverhead River – Private Water

Incredible fly fishing, beautiful scenery and solitude.

FishTales Outfitters can provide you privileged access to several miles of Beaverhead River, a spring fed slough, and a twenty five-acre “hog” pond with rainbows and browns in the 22″ to 30″ class.

 $525.00/day + $125 fee per rod – Wade fishing only

The owner of the Beaverhead River Ranch is a 4th generation rancher that allows us access to a limited number of 6 anglers per day, on a rod fee basis, to several miles of the lower Beaverhead River which is not floatable for guided anglers.

The Ranch is 1,400 deeded acres with 3.1+ miles of the Beaverhead River frontage. A dry bluff runs the west boundary of the ranch and offers many spectacular views that will take your breath away, including a historical buffalo jump used by Native Americans who inhabited this area long ago.

The large pond sits in the center of the Ranch and is loaded with wild rainbow and brown trout. Many other sloughs and springs creeks adorn the property, as well as large strands of mature cottonwoods and thick willows. The habitat for wildlife is incredible and the water resources are endless.
