You are welcome to fish on either of the two private stocked trout lakes on the property. Complimentary fly fishing rods and equipment are available, and your host can offer you guidance as to locations. Please make sure to purchase the appropriate fishing licenses from the Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP).
What do I pack?
Since mountain weather can change during the day, we recommend clothes that can be layered. Your host will send you a list of packing recommendations based on your intended ranch experience and the time of year you will be visiting.

All three residences have landline telephones that are available for you to use. Your host will show you where these are during your welcome tour.
